We're a little late on this one, but in case you missed it let us tell you about a guy named Aleksey Vayner. Mr. Vayner is set to graduate Yale in 2007 and, like so many undergrads hungry for a career, started applying for jobs. Aleksey went about it a little different than most, though; Aleksey made a hilarious video resume. And not intentionally hilarious either, hilarious because it's so ridiculous, so conceited and so deliciously terrible that you can barely look away for fear of missing another gem of arrogance.
Needless to say, as soon as he sent his video to major investment firms in New York it started getting forwarded around with subject lines such as "this is pure gold" and "You can't make this sh up." A great site, IvyGateBlog.com, picked up the story and set out to find more info on Aleksey. Apparently, Aleksey pretended to be CEO of a fake investment firm, a world champion athlete, a model, an accomplished author and, last but not least, head of a fake charity!
