Lacking in original ideas? Don’t worry your empty little head because social media provides the perfect cover — or at least in this parody it does.

The Onion pokes fun at the throngs of social media experts spewing generic tips on Facebook and Twitter with a TED-style talk from Cameron Hughes. Hughes, a faux social media consultant, reveals that the “secret” to success online is doing a whole lot of nothing. Nada, zip, zilch and then — tah-dah! — millions of followers and fans. If only it were that easy.

Don’t you feel silly for putting all that effort into 140-character quips and re-sharing memes from George Takei?
