Remember that Netflix video parodying Amazon’s famous drone video? It looks like Yelp tried to do something similar, making light of Facebook’s Oculus acquisition.

Yelp says in the video description, “For Yelp’s Hackathon 13, this team of engineers imagined what a virtual reality experience of Yelp Monocle would look like. Not all Hackathon projects have to be based on real, feasible products, as evidenced by this team’s creativity with duct tape and a little video editing skills.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Yelp Monocle, it’s an augmented reality feature that uses a phone’s GPS to overlay markers on top of businesses on the phone’s camera view.
