Not Google in its current state. That'd be ridiculous. But before it became the owner of planet earth, Google was just a fresh-faced web start-up.

Well not Facebook, specifically. But they could've hired David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin to make a movie for their website, just like they did for The Social Network, which cost 50 million to make. "If you invented the New York Times pay wall, you would've invented the New York Times pay wall." This thing writes itself.
