Microsoft, the Musical?Posted: September 9, 2019
Well, it was primarily driven by Microsoft summer 2019 interns
I saw reference to this while browsing through some Teams channels, and I thought, Oh, ok, one of those shaky cell phone productions, let’s see…
Oh boy was I wrong. This is full on “ready for broadway” style musical entertainment. My takeaways: We have cool interns, look at that diverse bunch, they can sing, they can produce, they did this as a passion project while still maintaining their day jobs…
I’ve never been a corporate apologist, and I’ve poked the bear in the eye more times than I’ve stroked it, but this made me feel really happy. I was entertained, and proud that the company I work for can show such fun and mirth, while doing a tong-in-cheek sendup. Tech is supposed to be fun, and this was fun.
I’m sure other companies will follow suit in years to come, or they already do this at other companies, and I just haven’t see it.
Watching this was a well spent 10 minutes to start my week.
