Watch the moment Mark Zuckerberg found out he got into Harvard

Watch the moment Mark Zuckerberg found out he got into Harvard

Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg shared a video taken by his father Edward of when he found out he got into Harvard. Almost 15 years after that, he will get his honorary degree at commencement next Thursday.

In the footage, a teenage Zuckerberg can be seen sitting in front of an old computer in his pyjamas as his dad films him reading the acceptance email from Harvard. Seriously, even his dad seemed more excited at the sight of an email from Harvard University!

He initially tried to push the camera away before he celebrated with a quiet: "Yay, I got accepted".

Now, with a reaction that lukewarm, anyone would assume that it was sarcastic and as did Mark's father, Edward Zuckerberg. Meanwhile, the pings of AOL Instant Messenger go off in the background as Mark presumably gives his friends the good news.

Zuckerberg, who himself is a Harvard dropout, will be giving the commencement speech at the University's upcoming graduation ceremony on May 25 and also getting his own honory degree from the Ivy League college.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg delivers the keynote address at Facebook's F8 Developer Conference on April 18, 2017 at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.
