Winklevoss twins go nuts over Facebook row

Twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have reignited their dispute with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg by starring in a television advert for nuts.
The Harvard graduates and former Olympic rowers received a $65m settlement after alleging that Mr Zuckerburg stole their idea for the social networking website.
The argument made it on to the big screen in 2010's Oscar-winning film The Social Network. But now, the twins have taken it to the small screen by appearing in a new commercial for pistachio nuts, in which they make thinly-veiled (and thin) jokes about their long-running quarrel with Facebook and its founder. They appear in matching suits and ties in front of name boards which both read "Mr Winklevoss". When one snaps open a pistachio nut with one hand, his brother remarks: "Hey, that's a good idea... cracking it like that, it could be huge."
The other replies: "Think someone will steal it?" Both then turn to the camera and ask in unison: "Who'd do that?"
The twins, both played by actor Armie Hammer in The Social Network, have accused Mr Zuckerberg of taking their idea for Facebook while all three were studying together at Harvard University.
But the pair, who competed in the American rowing team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics , appeared to have dropped their dispute with Facebook in June, when they chose not to appeal a Supreme Court ruling which upheld the $65m settlement awarded to them in the same year.
The brothers had claimed they deserved a bigger pay-out.
