It’s not often that we get to see the Crunchies Monkey. When he’s not busy shopping at the Facebook Store or taking a Lyft from Square to the TechCrunch office, he’s usually working hard to identify all the hottest new startups that have launched every year.
That takes a lot of patience and focus. And most of all, a lot of bananas.
But today, hackers at the TC Disrupt Hackathon got a surprise visit from the Crunchies Monkey, who had a lot of fun shaking hands, giving high-fives, and checking out what folks are hacking on. Because who knows, just as GroupMe did a few years ago, the next big startup might come out of tonight’s hackathon.
Check out his journey above, and look out for an extra-special guest cameo by TechCrunch alum Jason Kincaid!!
