‘A sonic felony’: Crypto bros and sisters alike aghast at Randi Zuckerberg’s cringe music video
Link copied to
Mark Zuckerberg’s sister Randi has struck a cringiest music video on the internet since Heather Morgan’s Razzlekhan — and yes, Stockhead is going to inflict it on you.
Her “We’re All Going to Make It” song features crypto sisters rocking out in Central Park to the Twisted Sister anthem, revamped with new lyrics involving catchphrases from the crypto community.
“It’s just the start so gm / Carpe your crypto diem / DYOR and pick a coin / BTD Buy the dip it / Our diamond hands won’t flip it / HODL and we’ll all join
A decade ago, I sang this song on Broadway. Today I sing this song, surrounded by new friends, as a rallying cry for the women of web3. Together, we can accomplish anything. And have fun doing it! #WAGMI
PS Look for some fun cameos!

Zuckerberg, 40, struck a defiant, feminist tone after “crypto bros” largely panned the video.
A special thanks to all the crypto bros hating on my music video by retweeting and sharing it more broadly. Couldn’t have asked for a better guerilla, I mean gorilla, marketing department! 🤣🤣🤣

But a number of women in the space said they weren’t fans either.
Women of web3 hate it too
It’s the worst English language music ever produced
It’s a sonic felony
It physically hurts
Please stick to being rich quietly kthxbi pic.twitter.com/KebvMSeSKQ

I’m seeing a lot of hateful comments on this video and I just want to say
I agree with all of them

As Mashable pointed out, this actually isn’t Zuckerberg’s first attempt at a “parody” music video cover promoting crypto. But the previous one got better reviews, despite her risky choice to cover Adele.
🎶🎶 Hello – it’s me 🎶🎶
Music video! b/c community should be FUN, crypto should be welcoming not intimidating & why not?!?! @thehugxyz we believe in working hard AND enjoying this crazy amazing moment we’re in. Best way to support creators is to be creators! Apologies Adele 🤣 pic.twitter.com/GHKRCK8J7z

Here are the lyrics.
Hello, it’s me
Would you like to learn about exchanging crypto-currency?
We’ll go over … everything
Cause you’ve got coins from different blockchains and want to do some trading
Hello, can you hear me?
A decentralized exchange lets you convert from A to B
Once you pay the …
And no single point of failure means you’ve got sec-ur-ity
There’s such a difference
from Wall Street
And no middleman
Hello, this is DeFiiiiiiiiiii
A way to borrow, sell or buyyyyyyy
Just start by installing some decentralized apps
Like Uniswap, Aave, or Compound perhaps
Hello, this is DeFiiiiiiiiiii
No central bankers need applyyyyy
I’m going all in on this groundbreaking space
Don’t need bankers shoving web2 in my face
