For all those brogrammer naysayers, Silicon Valley has given us video proof that the sexist frat-boy programmer does exist, with this pretty NSFW video advertisement from Runa Capital, which TechCrunch's Jordan Crook calls a "technology-focused" venture capital firm. We're going to send you over to YouTube to watch the clip rather than embed it here. It starts out with a dude programmer hero who codes so much he can't even stop while having sex with his girlfriend, as he codes, as just one example of the misogyny portrayed in the video. All in all, it seems like an anti-recruiting ad for start-up culture. No, there are no keg stands or popped collars. It may just be that sexism is alive and well in Silicon Valley. But, of course, we already knew that.
