In other words, they would like you to insert this guy’s face into several pictures with another girl and make it look 100% believable. Read more…

Blast from the Past: The Daily Show Slams Camera Phones as a Useless Combination

In 2004, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart took on a burgeoning technology that they saw as a completely nonsensical mix of two things: the camera phone.
