Take a break. Watch these videos that poke fun at nonprofits and fundraising

The new Human Services Council video has has racked up 3K views in just one day, and the older one has hit 60K views  — so nonprofit humor is clearly a thing.

"The Funder" video by the Human Services Council.

Thanks to our friends over at Nonprofit Quarterly, we’ve recently become aware of these Human Services Council videos. In case you haven’t seen them — they’re silly and enjoyable, totally over-the-top, and uncomfortably close to some painful truths.

The most recent video, “The Funder” — which was posted to the council’s YouTube channel yesterday — has nonprofits competing with each other to land a big donor, in the style of “The Apprentice.” The older video, “Everyone Deserves a Fair Slice,” envisions what it might be like if a pizzeria were funded the same way nonprofits are.

The new video has has racked up 3K views in just one day, and the older one has hit 60K views  — so nonprofit humor is clearly a thing. Do we have our own, homegrown Philly examples? If so, let us know!

Without further wait, your Thursday afternoon video break….
