There's no questioning the authenticity of the cast is there?

I only managed the first 30 seconds or so until nausea overcame me...

But yes, they look like beancounters all right.

Gruss Gott!

I can affrim that at my place of work we all sing like that to start every morning. It is very life affirming.

CU - you have my profound sympathies for having to suffer that particular piece of kraft durch freuden.

I still think the 'KPMG, we're strong as can be' anthem takes the overall biscuit. An ex of mine bursts into that song every time she is near a KPMG building. I suspect she should get out more.

I could only cope with a few seconds of this ! reminds me of the corporate that Barclaycard produced with the sound track of we are the happy people. Why do these corporations do this ?, outsiders think it is embarrassing twaddle and the insiders know it is risable

I think there must be more than a little bit of the Emperor's New Clothes at work. I blame the disgustingly named 'Human Resources' departments, without which the world would be an infinitely better place.

That singer was bloody awful, although that's the least of this idea's problems. Croydonian is right. "Human Resources" departments have to fill their days somehow.

also perhaps the very old men who run such comapniesa re so out of touch that when the HR and diversity departments come kncoking with these requests they acquiesce.

CU - I don't think they're "very old men". I just think that, like the rest of us, they are so exhausted by brutal political correctness and thought fascism that it's easier just to give in.

there is an extraordinary Shell company song from some outpost where humour is lacking (USA, natch), the URL for which I shall dig out.

When at Amoco I had to suffer the indignities of the Amoco Performance Management calypso being played upon sundry occasions, and issued to all staff on vinyl, which was outdated even then - perhaps some form of retro-irony

That was... awful... I had a look at their homepage and they really are beancounters. At the first black and white footage I thought I spotted Walter Ulbricht the former GDR head of state and personal friend of Stalin. At that times cheap work was even harder and cheaper.
