Larry Page Parody Twitter Account Had A Blast With Google’s Earnings Blunder

By: Chris Crum - October 19, 2012

As you may have heard, Google had something of a blunder on Thursday, when its earnings report was released several hours early while the market was very open. The big problem was that Google missed estimates, and shares immediately began to sink.

The release had been posted to the SEC site, “pending” a quote by CEO Larry Page.

The company eventually released a statement, saying, “Earlier this morning RR Donnelley, the financial printer, informed us that they had filed our draft 8K earnings statement without authorization. We have ceased trading on NASDAQ while we work to finalize the document. Once it’s finalized we will release our earnings, resume trading on NASDAQ and hold our earnings call as normal at 1:30 PM PT.”

Then, ahead fo the earnings call, which was provided in a webcast on YouTube, YouTube went down for a brief time, though Google was able to get it back up and running.

Anyway, while all of this was going on, someone set up a parody account for Larry Page, under the handle @PendingLarry. Nerdy hilarity then ensued:

 
 

 
 

 
 

Despite the company’s disappointing earnings release, the real Page maintained that he is “delighted” and “excited” about all of Google’s opportunities.
