Hey Mom, I’m A Book Salesman

Comments (29)

I love my partners at Foundry Group.  They keep me humble.  Very humble.  I speculate that the following video is the work of Jason Mendelson.  Payback will be sweet.


On a more serious note, Andrew Warner has a great interview with my co-author and TechStars CEO David Cohen up on Mixergy.

Oh – and if you haven’t already, go buy a copy of Do More Faster.

    Solidly funny! This is great – can't see what you come up with in response Brad!

    I received this link from a lawyer, and then just showed it to my lawyer father — who was laughing the whole time. Brilliant. Second only to the xtranormal.com "I want an iPhone" video.

    I can't believe my work was reduced to a footnote on the bottom of 2010's version of a LOL cat.

      I'd take this as a high compliment!

      I couldn't figure out how to embed video from Mixergy. I might have just been tired from the week but I would have if I could figure this out.

        Takeaway #1: Talk to Wistia about the embed.

        Takeaway #2: Run an ad on elance for someone who could convert my interviews into cartoons.

        Done & Done.

    I'm happy that my first try at film creation has been such a success. Bring it, Feld.

    • Steve Bergstein

      Well done, Jason!

  • Ira

    I soiled myself!

  • Paul Kedrosky

    Fantastic. Can't believe I didn't think of doing this before "Jason" (sic.) did.

  • kilitx

  • Jeff H

  • Bill Meredith

    Still hilarious every time I see it! At least your partners didn't get fired unlike the employee at Best Buy who made the "iPhone vs HTC" video!
