This is kinda random.

Founder and CEO of YouTube Chad Hurley, is leaving his company to work full time on his and business partner Anthony Mazzei's menswear line Hlaska.

The 33 year old explained his decision to Forbes:

"If something excites you, go for it. Anthony and I also don't believe that for Hlaska to exist we need to be as "dialed-in" as others believe. We make stuff we want to use. We make wallets, bags and shirts we'd want to see sold in stores. In that sense it's exactly like YouTube. We wanted something that wasn't available, so we built it ourselves."

Inneresting.

Luckily for Chad if this little business venture doesn't pan out he can always fall back on that $1.65 billion he made from selling YouTube to Google 4 years ago.
