Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has built a social media platform with more than two billion users, becoming the fifth richest person in the world in the process, but his company hasn’t built a perfect closed captioning system yet, apparently.
The Facebook closed captioning for Zuckerberg’s Harvard commencement speech was in full beta mode on Thursday, spitting out that “Ceceokok” — rather than “Facebook” — “wasn’t the first thing I built.”

It didn’t get much better from there, either.

Luckily for Zuck, he finally has that honorary doctorate from Harvard to fall back on if this tech thing doesn’t work out.
