HBO launched it’s fictional account of six young men who founded a startup company in Silicon Valley this year. The series is such a hit that it has already been picked up for a second season that will follow it’s supposedly straight characters further as they attempt to make it big in the tech capital of the United States (about half an hour from TIM’s headquarters in San Francisco). We couldn’t help but notice the nod to Treasure Island Media in this scene where geeky Erlich Bachman is emerging from the shower in his robe.
What do you think? Was this a subtle slip on the part of the set designers or do the boys of Silicon Valley have something to get off their chests? There are an awful lot of dick jokes in the series after all. Check out this clip where the guys attempt to assess the “mean jerk time” about jerking off every guy in the auditorium of their upcoming presentation and be the judge yourself.
