Sometimes I just wanna DANCE (the history of Office Party Dance Party)
Today a co-worker sent around a funny video of some of our friends dancing around on YouTube. It made me a little teary-eyed. Nostalgic. Made me think back to my younger days at my old job. And a short-lived video series we created called Office Party Dance Party (we were aware of the redundancy).
It began with a new camera I bought, which had video recording capabilities. One day, we just started dancing in my co-worker's office:
(I still have and wear that shirt).
Then, when I posted the video to YouTube, another one of our co-workers wanted to join in on the fun. And who were we to deny?
Thus was born Office Party Dance Party 2
At this point, Office Party Dance Party had reached near-celebrity fame at the office. Everyone wanted to be involved! So this time we involved everyone including some slightly higher-up management... and coupled it with some simple choreography.
And so came Office Party Dance Party 3
And sadly, that was it. After a while, we got tired of dancing. I went and got a job elsewhere.
It makes me sad, really. I miss that crew. And the dancing. Always the dancing.
