Lex Fridman Mark Zuckerberg Metaverse Interview is a viral video shared by tech influencer and podcaster Lex Fridman in which he interviews Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a hyperrealistic version of the Metaverse (compared to the cartoonish Horizon Worlds avatars). The interview was posted to YouTube, X / Twitter and various podcast platforms simultaneously in late September 2023, with people reacting to the event with memes and discussions about Meta's new phase on social media over the following days.


On September 28th, 2023, Lex Fridman posted a video to YouTube[1] titled "Mark Zuckerberg: First Interview in the Metaverse | Lex Fridman Podcast #398." The podcast episode showed Fridman interviewing Mark Zuckerberg in a new, hyperrealistic version of the Metaverse.

The Metaverse, specifically Meta's platform Horizon Worlds, was previously mocked by internet users for its simplistic graphics and low usage numbers.

The interview gathered over 690,000 views on YouTube in a day (seen below).
