A hilarious viral video parodies the rise and fall of Avengers star Jeremy Renner’s now-defunct mobile app akin to the trailer for David Fincher’s 2010 film, The Social Network.
This video from Twitter user @clemmie prominently uses the Scala & Kolacny Brothers’ cover of Radiohead’s song “Creep”, which was famously featured in the main trailer for The Social Network. The video uses some dialogue from that trailer and repurposes it to reflect the drama behind Jeremy Renner’s mobile app.
You can watch this hilarious parody of The Social Network centered on Jeremy Renner’s mobile app drama down below:
Compare this video to the original trailer for The Social Network, and the similarities will leave you in stitches:
Jeremy Renner created an app for fans to have a place to connect with him and other fans. The app quickly obtained a bad reputation because of internet trolls hacking and posting under Jeremy Renner’s name. Because of this, Jeremy Renner ended up shutting the mobile app down.
This parody of The Social Network in regards to Jeremy Renner’s mobile app is pretty humorous given what that film is based on. The Social Network is based on Ben Mezerich’s book The Accidental Billionaires and focuses on the creation of Facebook and the legal drama amongst its creators/founders and competitors.
The Social Network was directed by David Fincher from a script by Aaron Sorkin. It starred Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer, Max Minghella, Brenda Song, Rashida Jones and Rooney Mara among others. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won three: Adapted Screenplay, Original Score and Editing.
