This video was done by Tor Myhren, the new ECD of Grey New York. I had an opportunity to do some work for him and a friend/former colleague over the weekend. Great guy, I wish him and the close friends I have there luck in transforming one of the largest/oldest agencies in NY into something that catches everyone off gaurd.
This video was done as an internal piece to anounce the move of the creative group to the 2nd floor. (I think I've interpreted the lyrics properly.)
A few side notes.
When I got the call from Grey that they wanted me to come in and do some work with Tor over the weekend I gooogled "Tor Myhren" to see what's what, as I always do. The next thing I always do is check to see if people have purchased the url's for their own names. I am now the proud owner of tormyhren.com and tormyhren.net.
I also own mikelanzi.com and mikelanzi.net (President of Strawberry Frog). In fact... Mike, I just renewed your shit.
One last thing.
My favorite line from Tor's video is: “I went to Steve Hardwick and guess what he told me, guess what he told me… he said, girl, you better build a good department and you better make it quick. But, he’s a dick.” A LOT of people say Steve Hardwick (President of Grey NY) is a big asshole but I think he's a great guy, I'm constantly defending him.
-------UPDATE-------- Just got this email frmm Mike Lanzi.

The last line killed me.
It fuckin' killed me.
I'm on the floor...

The whole ending..., what with the .com / .net reference... awesome.
Just back from Plano.
