Every summer, Boston venture capital firm Flybridge Capital Partners throws a big weekend shindig up in Kennebunkport, Maine for entrepreneurs, fellow investors, and their families. For the Saturday night dinner party, they ask everyone to come in costume. In prior years, the theme has been "alter agos," "rock stars," and "heroes and villains." This year, attendees were asked to come as their favorite "Saturday Night Live" character or musical guest.

The Flybridge crew put together this "SNL" parody video, shown during the party. (Toward the end, there's a cameo from yours truly, standing in for Seth Rogen.) The break-down:

0:30 - "Weekend Update"
4:00 - "Mr. Bill Raises Venture Capital"
6:05 - "Digital Short: Like a VC"
