Ernst & Young’s Super Awesome Motivational Video

This shlockfest is an internal motivational video produced for the German division of Ernst & Young.

It shows some kind of American cabaret singer leading a group of E&Y employees in a ballrooms singalong.

“Oh Happy Day” is repeated about 5,000 times. It is sometimes punctuated by “When Ernst & Young showed me a better way,” “show leadership” and, “working together.” In the background the employees sing and laugh, interspersed with black and white video of employees enjoying a mass dinner and executives carrying folders.
