Social networking has made lying so much more difficult. Anyone can check up on their friends’ whereabouts and activities through Facebook, Twitter, and now Foursquare, whenever there’s some suspicion of deception. Enter My 4Square Alibi. This website and application allows users to check into places even when they’re not there – concrete evidence in support of their shrewd alibi.

Even better, the site features fake brief testimonial videos starring several comedians — Bil Dwyer (as the company CEO & spokesman), Frank Conniff, Brady Novak, Andrew DeWitt, Barry Rothbart, Shannon Hatch, Heather Thomson, Mike Burns, Raj Desai, Lizzy Cooperman and Mike Holmes — who describe the many benefits they’ve received from using the service. Check out Dwyer’s (CEO Ted Sanderson) pitch below.
