I’m A VC

Comments (32)

In the “if you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at” category, I present the video I’m A VC. The formal press release, Foundry Group Premiers Documentary Film About Secret Lives of Venture Capitalists, explains things more fully.

My partner Jason Mendelson created, composed, wrote, sang, and produced the whole thing and explains the back story of I’m a VC on his blog. It’s awesome working with incredibly talented people who have a sense of humor and a willingness to make fun of themselves while letting me make fun of myself. And no – I can’t dance for shit, nor can I sing.

Entrepreneurs – you make our world go around. This is dedicated to you.

    This is fabulous beyond belief. Thanks for being willing to poke fun at yourself – and for taking the time to learn the original choreography.

    I knew it!  Wherever there’s an ex-drummer, there’s sure to be some hot mess under the hood…

    Saw this at ignite, dick in the box was clever… however do you think it missed the target of fun and parody and came off as a little more http://amzn.to/rr6gNF ….

    Love the Primack cameo – what was he doing in boulder?

    • http://www.feld.com bfeld

      We asked him to come out to help and drink beer with us.

    Haha great work guys, loved the lyrics!

    Reminds me of the Ali G show where he presents his “ideas” to a bunch of marketing people, VC’s, and even Donald Trump.  If you haven’t seen this yet it’s absolutely hilarious.  Take a break.  Be prepared to laugh.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkuOuxRD1Bc

    Thanks for all these great posts Brad, it’s really great to be able to get your perspective on so many things and get some good humor too.
