Well, I'm sure he _meant_ well...

This is a prime example of how uncool the financial business can be. The male-pattern baldness and the cream-colored tie are what really set it off. DM alerted me to this, so feel free to blame him.

(Note that Vimeo ain't no YouTube. The loading takes a while sometimes. Believe me when I say it's not really worth the wait.)

Hey, just wanted to touch base with you offline about tomorrow's corporate musical deliverable. Linda from HR wanted me to be proactive about keeping you in the loop about the policy against electric guitars, so I figure you should leverage that sweet acoustic you picked up at Guitar Center during lunch at last week's offsite. Also, at this morning's face-to-face, I brought up your concern about how wearing ties during our song could impact our "vibe" and let's just say it seems like a hot button issue in HR so let's not rock the boat and just keep them on.

Also Larry in Legal didn't think using the original lyrics would go over well with the brass, so Marv in Marketing suggested switching out a few words (e.g. "Bank" instead of "Love") would be a great branding opportunity. Obviously this synergy would be a win-win for us, so I green-lighted the idea and will brainstorm the new lyrics with you in your cube after my 3 o'clock.

So at the end of the day, we can practice this restructure in your garage and QA our performance to a robust, team building experience!

Later dewdzksi ( <-- LoL !),

I can't believe that this is allowed to exist in the universe. This really should be sent to U2. These guys are donkey dicks.

Well, I still hate Bono more than the singer in the video.

Clearly, the banking industry is in dire need of more regulation.
