Tis the season for video holiday cards

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

I wonder if even a couple years ago anyone predicted the use of web video to send holiday “cards” to friends and family. This year we’ve been inundated by them, and I’m even in a couple. No, Yieldex didn’t do a video holiday card, although we did do a nifty video for the Amazon AWS Start-up Challenge.

The First Round Capital holiday card video is a fun take-off of a popular viral video. You can see me at 1:48 doing the silly dance in the middle of Howard St in downtown San Francisco. Mike Arrington was worried we’d get hit by a car.

Now my singing group, the Richter Scales, decided to get into the act with our own holiday parody. We shot it in half a rehearsal one night, and our own inimitable Matt Hempey put it together in just a couple sleepless nights. The song is a parody of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, with lyrics updated for 2009.
