As always – a VMworld always triggers lot of serious, long, heavy, technical reads coming, but equally – VMworld always has a lot of fun :-)
This is the first of several!
#v0dgeball was awesome – congrats to team SMP – a great partner – who took the #1 spot! It’s amazing – the coolest things you start, they eventually become bigger than you – and live on. #v0dgeball started with Chris Hoff and I smack talking playfully 5 years ago, and now has become huge. 16 teams – and more than $20,000 raised for the #WoundedWarrior Project! Thank you all!
But VMworld is always the right time to release some fun silly videos – and we have several in store :-) Here’s the first!
World – welcome to “Life in the Flash Lane”. This video is MADE by the one and only Sam Maraccini who has clearly found his alter-ego as “storage dude stuck in the 70’s”, and the supporting cast with their incredible subtle and awesome 80’s fashions and hair spray. Oh – and, clearly our EMC CMO Jonathan Martin coming out of what clearly was an awesome van (down by the river) doubling as a hotbox – because we take ourselves VERY seriously.
What a gas :-) I hope you guys like it as much as they clearly had making it – and we have some other surprises in store – we will throw some of our tropes out the window. Oh, and #RememberRuddy!
