First Round Capital is famous in these parts for its irreverent, awkward and often hilarious holiday e-greetings.

This year, the team and its family of startups pitched in to create an elaborate send-up of Rebecca Black’s soulless mistake of a song, “Friday.”

In the vid, you’ll catch glimpses of some of our favorite folks, from TaskRabbit’s Leah Busque to Turntable.fm’s Billy Chasen to Mashery’s Oren Michels to GetSatisfaction’s Wendy Lea.

And of course, there are the partners, including Josh Kopelman and Howard Morgan, “kickin’ in the front seat, sittin’ in the back seat.”

Sure, it’s autotuned and cringe-inducing, but a lot more hilarious than your average family holiday get-together.
