The latest season of the series “Silicon Valley” aired this Sunday, March 23rd.
As a parody of the actual Silicon Valley, and the startup world, they are always making fun of everything related to the startup world.
The latest one was on this Sunday when they aired the first episode of the 5th season.
Taking advantage of the recent scandal involving Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, they added an easter egg to the series opening credits.
it’s very subtle. The Facebook logo is quickly replaced by ГДÇЭБФФЖ, a name composed by letters from the Russian alphabet. The fun thing about it is that ГДÇЭБФФЖ doesn’t mean Facebook in Russian. They just wrote it that way because of it kind of looks like Facebook and make it even easier for people to get the joke.
During the Silicon Valley opening credits, the Facebook logo flipped from English to Russian. First-rate burn by one of the best series on TV. pic.twitter.com/zvh9ZPd3td

Why it’s hot:
Considering the tonality of the show and how they are constantly making fun of the silicon world, this joke was too good and too big for them to miss.
