Google Glass is supposed to make us feel connected, but it’s undeniably awkward to have a conversation with a camera mounted to the side of your face.

Google’s futuristic eyewear was the butt of a joke on Saturday Night Live this weekend — a response to the “first look” reviews on almost every tech blog.

On Saturday’s episode, the writers of Weekend Update invited fictional tech blogger Randall Meeks and his new Google Glass to an interview with Seth Meyers. The conversation gets super uncomfortable when Meeks begins yelling at his Glass and is outed for watching some adult material.

Check out the video below for Sunday laughs (and while you’re at it, the Tumblr “White men wearing Google glass“). Note that due to NBC restrictions, you may not be able to stream it if you’re based outside of the U.S.
