Cute animated version of Bill Gates answers Reddit AMA questions

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates is continuing his media tour to talk about his work with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation by participating in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session today. However, the second richest man in the world has already answered three of those AMA questions in a new video posted on YouTube.

The video features an animated version of Gates in a style that's similar to the Reddit mascot and we suspect that image could be turned into an Internet meme almost instantly. The video itself has Gates's voice answering three questions. The first asks how much he has in his wallet at the moment and while Gates admits he doesn't always carry one with him, he happened to have one available which has a $100 bill inside.

The second question was one that we are sure Gates has heard from a lot of people: "Can I have a million dollars?" Gates says that he and his wife Melinda have already planned how their money should be given out to fight diseases in third world countries as well as educational programs in the US. So basically, the answer to that person's question was, "No."

Finally, the third question was, "Which would you rather fight, 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck?" Gates says that, through his foundation, he likes to tackle big problems so he would prefer to fight a horse-sized duck if given that choice.

Despite what people think/say of Microsoft and it's products, I have the highest admiration for the man.

He's doing good all over the world with his money and Foundation, changing peoples lives.

And yet Steve gets a movie made...... :-\

Hey John, you know you could have actually included a link to the Reddit page.

This article is worthless without it.

So what you're saying is people wasted this brilliant man's time? Given the opportunity to ask Bill Gates any question - I would have hoped someone would have had a better question to asked.
