The Monopoly Man aka Rich Uncle Pennybags aka Ian Madrigal in costume appeared on the back of Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s congressional hearing today and the video and freeze frames are kind of funny and amusing.
Lawmakers grilled Pichai on issues linked to data privacy and anti-competitive market performance as well as Google’s plans in China.
Back to Madrigal, he really took over the ‘Pennybags’ character from Amanda Werner, who is now a strategy director at Revolution Messaging and was often seen in Washington in the backgrounds of various trials and US political events.
Below you can see the full hearing, and you can kind of jump around the video to see more of him in the background. I’ve also added a few stills and images shared by Madrigal on Twitter.
