  • [APPLAUSE]

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: You'd think Google would

  • have a better room than this.

  • I thought there would be, like, an awesome movie theater,

  • and most people are on the floor.

  • Great.

  • Google.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: That's how we roll.

  • That's-- you know, we gotta--

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: You want to stay grounded.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: We need server space.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: I get it.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: Kumail just read--

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: Kumail just read "The Game,"

  • and started off with, like, a hard neg up top.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah, man.

  • This is Google.

  • You've gotta show them who's boss.

  • I bing, so I don't know what--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • JK, nobody bings.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: I webcrawl.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: This would be the shortest talk

  • in the history of-- you're out of here,

  • like, all right, gotta go.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah.

  • I went on Bing by mistake once, and it said, you--

  • just go to Google.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: Did they give up?

  • Was that just it?

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah.

  • My computer got on fire.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Yes?

  • ZACH WOODS: Go ahead.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: No, no, no.

  • ZACH WOODS: Oh, no.

  • This is-- my question cannot support this level

  • of attention.

  • I just was curious if you used the phrase got on fire.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: Yeah, he did.

  • ZACH WOODS: That was it.

  • Thank you.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Got on fire.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: I mean, this is going on the internet.

  • It could be the next, like, slang term.

  • Everyone will be like that's got on fire.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Got on fire, it's gonna get on fire.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: There we go.

  • It'll be like a self-fulfilling prophecy?

  • Is that what that becomes?

  • ZACH WOODS: Yeah.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: I'd love to know,

  • we just saw the first episode of season four.

  • What do you think the biggest shift in reaction

  • has been to the show?

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: For season four?

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: Yeah.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: We haven't heard any of the reaction yet,

  • so we don't know.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: Oh.

  • Well, let's give them the reaction for season four.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah, how do you--

  • AMANDA CREW: Reaction.

  • [CHEERING]

  • Whoa, big--

  • ZACH WOODS: I would say, just based on that,

  • the reaction is much more coerced this time around.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: Oh, yeah, they hated it.

  • They hated it.

  • They're being paid to do that.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Can I say, this is a very diverse crowd.

  • It's white people and Asian people.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I see my people.

  • This is great.

  • Look.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: Yes, it's all the peeps.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Does this feel threatening to you, white man?

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: Yes.

  • It's not my America.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • I want to see everybody's H-1's right now.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: I bet there's a few here.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: You bet there's a few H-1s in here?

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Hey, man, I was an H-1 until I found--

  • tricked someone into falling in love with me.

  • AMANDA CREW: And then made a movie about it too, right?

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah.

  • AMANDA CREW: Yeah.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: I was an O-1.

  • It's for artists of, um, extraordinary ability.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah, it was made for people like Einstein

  • and then, you know, these people.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: Not L-1s.

  • That was made for talentless hacks like myself.

  • Let's get into a strong visa debate right now.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: Let's.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: I'll go anti, just to stir the pot.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: [LAUGHS]

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: This ends in me being fired, I feel like.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: You haven't--

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: All of us.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: --done anything wrong.

  • We have.

  • Sorry, Dana.

  • DANA HAN-KLEIN: I am out of questions.

  • No, how much did you know about the goings-on

  • of Silicon Valley, like this area,

  • before you started the show?

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: I didn't know anything about it.

  • I remember-- I feel like the world outside Silicon Valley

  • has become much more aware of the goings-on of Silicon

  • Valley in the last four years.

  • Not because of our show, but I remember the show--

  • when we did the pilot, I would tell people I'm gonna do

  • a pilot-- a pilot is just, it's just the first episode--

  • called "Silicon Valley."

  • And they were like, oh, is it set in the '90s?

  • And I was like, no, there's crazy shit happening

  • there right now.

  • And people-- it wasn't as much in the mainstream consciousness

  • as it is right now.

  • So I knew nothing about it, really.

  • THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: I had approached tech in general

  • just as a consumer, as, like, a primarily a gamer.

  • So, like, however it was going to improve

  • my gaming experience, that's usually where I checked in.

  • And I would say my horizons have broadened a little bit.

  • And it's been interesting to know, like--

  • well, to find out just the business elements of it

  • all, just how much money is flying around.

  • It really does sort of feel like this tech, nerdy Wild West.

  • Everybody's shooting each other with infrared laser

  • beams instead of pistols.

  • ZACH WOODS: I hadn't even really engaged

  • with tech as a consumer.

  • Like, I was so frightened of tech just in my daily life,

  • I used my father's email address in high school, because--

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Which was zachsdad.

  • ZACH WOODS: Yeah, zachsdad.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: At aol.gov.

  • ZACH WOODS: We have ego boundary issues between the two of us.

  • But I was too-- it felt too daunting to set up

  • a Gmail account, so that was my relationship to tech.

  • AMANDA CREW: I remember when I--

  • MARTIN STARR: It felt too daunting?

  • ZACH WOODS: Daunting, yeah.

  • I was intimidated by it.

  • I, like, went to the login, and it asked me my name,

  • and I was like, fuck this.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • AMANDA CREW: When I set up my first email account,

  • I didn't understand what it was.

  • So when I shared my email address with my friend,

  • I was like, yeah, it's www.cucumber_cutie@hotmail.com.

  • And--

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Oh, I'm so sorry, a couple questions.

  • Cucumber cutie?

  • ZACH WOODS: That feels both suggestive and infantile

  • at the same time.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Yeah, it's like a child trying to be sexual.

  • ZACH WOODS: Oh, no.

  • AMANDA CREW: I'm--

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Cucumber?

  • AMANDA CREW: Cucumber_cutie@hotmail.com was

  • my email address.

  • KUMAIL NANJIANI: Why?

  • AMANDA CREW: And it was because I was in the ninth grade,

  • and I was in the computer class when I was making it,

  • and there was a poster that said, cool as a cucumber.

  • And I was like, yeah, cucumbers are cool.

  • So that was--
