Social Media Dorks Get an Anthem [VIDEO]

Remember the Pantless Knights of “I’m on a Mac” fame? Well, they’re back today with a new vid titled “The New Dork,” a parody of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’s “Empire State of Mind” that pays tribute to social media adherents and hipsters alike.

With shoutouts to Zuckerberg, Mashable (Mashable), Valleywag, Gizmodo, LinkedIn (LinkedIn), Twitter (Twitter) and tech nerds camped out in their mothers’ basements, this video is all about using your social media cache to attain new levels of irony-spun hipness.

According to these tech-savvy dudes, Internet denizens of today are raking in the cash and models whilst rocking skinny jeans and “steady Jerkin’” (it’s a dance craze — get your mind outta the gutter). As the refrain goes: “Social networks what dream are made of.” Apparently, the “New Dork” is the next hot thing.

That’s cool and everything, but I’m more stoked that the video features a guy wearing jorts.

Check it out below. What do you think of the concept of the “New Dork”? Let us know in the comments.
