Google is pretty much in every nook and cranny in our lives – we rely on it for email, calendars, documents, and now even social networking. All that’s missing is for Google to make me my morning cup of coffee.

Or how about making me a boyfriend? This hilarious little skit from Comediva is all about Google’s latest service: G-Male. The perfect boyfriend service is, of course, by invitation only.

So what do you get when you sign up for G-Male? An attentive man who listens to every word you say, and notices every little thing you do. He knows what you like, who you’d get along with, and always knows where your keys are.

At first it’s sweet and endearing, until you start to realize he’s listening to your every conversation, and always knows exactly where you are. All the time. Kinda like Google.
