Mark Zuckerberg hires Keke Palmer to explain his metaverse

Keke Palmer’s next job differs from her role in “Nope.”

Mark Zuckerberg’s meta hired Palmer, 28, to host “Are We There Yet?” – a series of videos explaining the Metaverse.

According to Variety, the series will extol the “limitless possibilities” of Meta’s virtual reality platforms.

The first episode of the series released Tuesday and sees the star of Jordan Peele’s latest film behind the wheel of a prop car and a green screen, with Vishal Shah, Meta’s VP of Metaverse Efforts, riding a shotgun.

“Could I recreate the Titanic, sail past an iceberg and yell, ‘Not this time, jerk!’?” Palmer asks Shah, 39.

“You can make a version of this now,” Shah replies.

“Are we already there?” is a “road trip into the metaverse” in which Palmer will chat with “creators, educators, and experts to find out where the metaverse is now—and what’s to come.”

With Palmer as host, she has different guests in the virtual passenger seat in every episode.

Shah, the first guest, told Palmer that “the Metaverse is the next phase of the internet.”

“And the main difference between the internet that we’re using today and the next phase is that we feel like we’re with other people in a way that we can’t feel in our digital experiences today,” he continued.

Ahead of Nope’s premiere, Meta launched a VR experience for the film. Users could explore the film’s Haywood Ranch and unlock Easter Eggs.

Meta, which changed its company name from Facebook in October, is focused on innovating with Metaverse technology.
