Polaris Backs JibJab

June 23, 2006

So who says VCs don't have a sense of humor?

My partner Jon Flint just led a Polaris investment in the first round of funding for JibJab, best known for the election parody "This Land," which (together with its encore) was viewed on the web over 80 million times.

Unlike many of the unfiltered video sharing/video aggregation sites out there, what we love about JibJab is that founders Gregg and Evan Spiridellis have leveraged their creative genius, and the success of "This Land," into a rather well established comedy brand.

As with our investments in Heavy and World Championship Sports, we think there is a great opportunity for branded (and/or unique and proprietary) content that is created expressly for the new platforms.

Gregg and Evan are up to some pretty neat stuff, not the least of which is their recently launched Jokebox. Check it out here.
