Tighten up - made for the IT Recruiter

The IT Recruiter and I bonded over this song. He heard it coming from my cube when I was watching this video sometime last year. He asked me what the hell that kid was doing. I told him about America's latest dance craze created by You Look Nice Today and showed him more examples. He laughed until he had to wipe his eyes, and then he told me about dancing to Archie Bell & the Drells when the song first came out. We've been buddies ever since.


We had a meeting recently and we were told to select songs that motivated us so they could be played in the background while we worked. He picked Tighten Up. When it came on, he called across a huge meeting room filled with people in break-out sessions - "What the hell are we supposed to do again?"


I told him, "I think we're already doing it."


Anyway, he's been out sick for awhile and I wanted to make something for him. I fully expect to hear "What the HELL..." when he sees this. Coming from him, it's a good thing.
