Imagine seeing this on your first day of work

On my first day of work at Google, all of us "Nooglers" were all set up in a giant room called Kiev which has tiered seating. This is where you do all of the HR forms and give away your brain and they have you sign things they will lose later.

Anyway, towards the end of the day, they played this on the wall. I wish I was making this up.

Note the lyrics have been altered significantly from the original song. It actually makes it creepier.

If it was just a video put together by a bunch of people for whatever genuine reason, then fine, that would be one thing, but having HR project it on the wall to the captive audience of new hires? That was different.
