Cameron Winklevoss: I’m Changing My Name To Cam Dotcom

By: Chris Crum - January 30, 2012

Facebook is said to be readying its IPO filing for this week – possibly as early as Wednesday. The NYSE and NASDAQ are even fighting over the listing, according to reports.

When the IPO launches, it’s going to be a huge one. You can count on that. Anyone who has read Accidental Billionaires or seen the critically acclaimed David Fincher film, The Social Network, must be wondering, what do the Winklevii think about all of this?

They’re certainly aware of it:

I’m sure there is still a sting, but they seem to be keeping in good spirits:

The Winklevoss twins gained a lot of fame thanks to Armie Hammer’s portrayal of them in The Social Network. Since the film came out, they’ve even appeared in commercials:

This ad really drives home just how big a part of popular culture the Winklevoss’ story (regarding the founding of Facebook) has become. Keep in mind, this is not Armie Hammer in the commercial, but the real Winklevii.

There’s no question that these guys are still benefiting from Facebook. Maybe not as much as Mark Zuckerberg, but they seem to be doing alright.

Unfortunately, they wouldn’t respond to my direct requests for comment.
