"Carrot is designed with you in mind. It's a seamless experience, meticulously crafted, from beginning to end."

This line could be pulled from any startup's website or Kickstarter page. But Carrot isn't a new tech company: it's just a vegetable. Or, in the words of the product's website, "It's not just a vegetable, it's what a vegetable should be."

Carrot elevates the common orange snack to "disruptive vegetable" status, poking fun at aspects of startup and tech culture that have become reliant on groan-worthy buzzwords and clichés. In the clearly Apple-inspired video, the voiceover states, "Carrot uses an innovative combination of nutrients to provide a seamless experience for your digestive system." Substitute out "nutrients" and "digestive," and you have your own startup-Kickstarter Mad Lib.
