Will Jack Make a Deal?

Will Jack Make a Deal?

Jack just gave two weeks notice to the boss.

He’s really looking forward to the freedom, travel, and new experiences his new business will provide him.

Lately, Lou has been giving Jack all this wonderful free advice about VC funding, staffing up, and getting big fast.

Jack didn’t think all that was necessary.

Lou says Jack needs to give him 50% of the company or risk certain disaster.

Will Jack make that deal?

See the shocking result for yourself in the fifth Lateral Action animated video:

  1. Suspense! Horror! Shock! πŸ™‚

    Have I said I love this blog?

    Although I’m impressed with Lou’s persuasive capabilities. Didn’t think he had it in him – but then again desperate times call for desperate measures.

  2. Haven’t seen a video for a while. I like it. Wish it was longer, but I know these things take time!

  3. This is a cool series and now I am so hooked. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    Can’t tivo it either πŸ™‚

  4. Jack’s obviously on the right track; wonder what Marla’s going to bring to the “meeting” in Episode Six?

  5. No Jack ! Don’t do it !

  6. That Marla’s a pistol. πŸ™‚

    I just re-watched her video. “I haven’t had an idea this good since grade school” went totally over my head the first time, as I hadn’t twigged to the FC thing yet. In an entire movie of great lines, that’s actually the only one I can remember without prompting.
