In this new Christopher Guest mockumentary, we follow three software developers as they launch DinrSwop, a social-sharing app that allows food users to barter their leftover meals with like-minded eating enthusiasts. The team’s lead explains the concept during a VC pitch meeting: “This, gentlemen, is a half-eaten burrito. Some might call it Mexican cuisine, but I call it an investment—and I expect ROI.”
In a gross abuse of Series A funding, the team upholsters its entire office in 16-ounce selvedge denim, and blunders on its marketing-tchotchke choice, selecting a plastic model of a fried egg with a cigarette sticking out of it. Because irony, hello.
Even more ironic: A real version of the app, LeftoverSwap, should be launching soon.
