I like this video. I've never worked in an office, but I understand what Al was doing with the song. The video does help a lot. I love CSN and CSNY, so Al harmonizing with himself to sing this impressed me. I get a big smile when I watch. Wtg, Al!
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

Is this Al's most politically charged/socially critical song/video? Feels like such a tongue in cheek jab at corporate a-hole America by slapping together non-sensical business jargon over a counterculture-esque song. Can't really think of any others that would top this one as far as that whole thing goes.

I think the humor lies mostly in juxtaposition, but like most of Al's songs, people can pick their interpretation and run with it.

The video was awesome; Al couldn't have ended up with a better concept for the subject of this song.
"I'll never feel awesome until October."
... but not in a creepy way.

I liked this video. I thought it fit the song really well, and it made me envision some excruciatingly boring corporate types sitting around in a meeting while someone jots nonsense down on a white board.

I don't understand this song and therefore I don't like it.
How old was that last signature? I mean, really?
