Last week Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that he would be leaving the company after being with them for 33 years. Ballmer joined the company in 1980 when Microsoft only had 30 employees. He eventually acquired 8% of the company, which gives him an estimated net worth of 18 Billion dollars. BILLION! Carson Daly and Producer Angie find it sorta refreshing to see a guy worth that much cash not have the normal “rich guy” personality.
Angie thought Ballmer’s farewell speech was reminiscent of the “Motivational Speaker” Saturday Night Live sketch by Chris Farley. Could these two be separated at birth? The both look alike, sound alike and definitely get worked up pretty easily. Watch both the videos and decide for yourself.
