Facebook Home

Facebook is gearing up for the launch of Facebook Home Friday, April 12th, with a slew of buzz already on the internet and a series of Television ads already running/set to run, it will be pretty hard to escape Facebook's newly imagined way to use your cell phone.

You can read up a bit about it here (or many other places on the web):

What are your thoughts about Home? Do you plan on giving it a go on your own phone?

The Harlem Shake

To add a little "fun" to our monthly Sales Meeting, I came up with the idea of having our marketing department put together a "Harlem Shake" video. If you don't know what this phenomenon is, then you're not alone because neither do I, hah. In essence, it's a song by Bauuman in the new genre of "Trap Music". I'm not sure how it started, but there are now over 90,000 unique versions of "The Harlem Shake" videos on Youtube. 

You can see ours below... and yes, I am the guy in the motorcycle helmet... and yes, we are in a Starbucks.

(Blogger has not indexed the video to embed currently so I am posting a link to Youtube until it is indexed and I can embed it)

So anyhow, if you were wondering, it was a huge hit and had everyone on the floor laughing at the meeting we premiered it at... considering no one was expecting it and most of the people watching could not see a lot of us in the marketing department doing that. Good times!
