The one-minute-long video shows Bill Gates entering a kitchen and baking a cake. From sifting the flour to chopping a chocolate bar, he does everything. He finally bakes the cake and then makes the Oreo frosting. The clip also shows Bill Gates, decorating the cake with Oreo biscuits. He finally poses with the final product and cuts a slice from the cake. However, it was not just a cake. He also wrote a heartfelt note for Warren which talked about his life and him, as a person.
A part of the note read, “One of Warren’s most admirable qualities is his unshakable sense of right and wrong. It’s a trait he may have gotten from his dad, Howard, a stockbroker, and a three-term US Representative from Omaha. During Howard’s first term, Congress got a pay increase. Howard refused to take the extra money: After all, he had been elected at the lower salary. Warren has that same high ethical bar (sic).”
The note also read, “Of all the things I’ve learned from Warren, the most important thing might be what friendship is all about. As Warren himself put it a few years ago when we spoke with some college students, ‘You will move in the direction of the people that you associate with. So it’s important to associate with people that are better than yourself. The friends you have will form you as you go through life. Make some good friends, keep them for the rest of your life, but have them be people that you admire as well as like.’ A person that I admire as well as like—that's the perfect description of how I feel about Warren. Happy birthday, my friend (sic).” Bill Gates and Warren Buffet met for the first time on July 5, 1991.
