Mark Zuckerberg made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, alongside the actor Jesse Eisenberg, who portrayed the Facebook founder as a socially-maladjusted egomaniac in the Oscar-nominated flick The Social Network. Needless to say, the whole thing was really awkward.

The Zuckerberg cameo came during Eisenberg's opening monologue. While Eisenberg chatted with regular Zuckerberg-impersonator and SNL cast-member Andy Samberg, the camera panned backstage, settling on a shot of the real Zuckerberg.

"Those guys are just nerds," Zuckerberg told SNL producer Lorne Michaels. Eventually, he wandered out to join Eisenberg and Samberg. Some gentle ribbing ensued – "it was interesting," Zuckerberg said of The Social Network – and the pair closed the monologue with a handshake.
