It’s no secret that car-sharing company Uber has had a rough time lately. But just in case you have a standing fleet of town cars, here’s a quick recap: Uber came up with a fix for the utterly broken taxi situation in San Francisco, became a behemoth and then got in trouble for skirting regulations with all the alacrity of a 10-year-old pointing his index finger at his brother’s ear and saying, “But I’m not touching him.”

Then creepy stuff started happening with the drivers. Creepy stuff has been happening with regulated cab drivers for centuries, but still.

Then creepy stuff got said at a party and was reported by Buzzfeed.

Every time a bad story came out, Uber responded with a shiny new announcement of a shiny new charity program or initiative: A veteran-hiring initiative, outreach on the drinkingest day of the year. Never mind about benefits or surge prices. Details, details.

Naturally, the geniuses at Funny or Die had to take a stab at Uber’s amazing ability to attract investors regardless of its behavior, like a four-wheeled Chris Brown. Et voila. Trigger warning: Douchey guys, female apologist, Silicon Valley.
