Venture Capitalist David Hornik

Is the whole “Shit People Say” meme getting out of control? We’ve already witnessed the “Shit Seattle People Say When it Snows” fascination following the snowstorm a few weeks ago, and the “Shit Silicon Valley Says” video that went viral with 1.5 million views on YouTube.

Now, here’s the latest. David Hornik, a venture capitalist at August Capital, an investor in Seattle area companies such as INRIX, Livemocha and Zulily, puts together a new video with some of the absurd statements that venture capitalists make.

Am I the only one whose skin crawled after watching this video? Among the lines:

“I met that guy at DEMO day.”

“Have you ever climbed Mt. Kilmanjaro?”

“That is literally the worst Four Seasons in the world.”

“What, you only have seven million users?”
