Bottom Line: Epic levels of ego backfiring has always been fertile ground for memes, that’s why celebrity faux pas always seem to do so well. Impossible Is Nothing shows that you don’t have to be rich or famous to get your self-love thrown back in your face. The low numbers you see may be the result of Aleksey’s rather significant attempts to wipe himself off the face of the Internet.
The self-aggrandizing video resume of a Yale Student, Aleksey Vayner, to the wealth management company UBS. It almost seems designed for the internet, complete with a ballroom dancing scene and a rambling staged interview. The video spread across the web and led to threats of legal action against UBS, YouTube and a number of other entities by Vayner.
Mr. Vayner seems to have scrubbed his video from the Internet, unfortunately that means we can only show you this spoof that pretty accurately parodies the incident. If you have a link to a working copy of the video, leave it in the comments.
