Watch Kellan Lutz Play a Top-Secret Agent Obsessed With Social Media
The Petraeus scandal showed us that even the nation’s spy in chief can be blind to the dangers of his online habits. But a short from Funny or Die, starring Kellan Lutz, suggests it could be worse: Our national security could depend on a secret agent who is obsessed with social media in all its flavors. He is Agent Hashtag, and “danger” is his Twitter handle—or rather, @danger69 is. @Danger was already taken.
It probably isn’t a good idea for a covert agent to check in on Foursquare or obsess over Pinterest, even if you can keep your boards secret now. But gloating aside, Agent Hashtag’s constant social media presence could make for more accountability and transparency.
