What you need to know
- Microsoft's employees and interns recently made a musical.
- The video highlights the company's successes and failures.
- This was a massive undertaking which featured incredible collaboration.
- You can watch the 10-minute video below.
Microsoft is known for quirky projects from time to time, but Microsoft the Musical might take the cake. Yesterday, the company posted a video on a channel called You Can, You Should, You Will. The video is roughly 10 minutes long and is absolutely incredible. In many ways, it's a celebration of Microsoft, but also touches upon some of the company's failures like the Windows Phone debacle.
Microsoft the Musical was dreamt up and led by interns spending the summer of 2019 at Microsoft. This Tony Awards-style musical theater opening number is just one of many passion projects that came to life because we were encouraged to bring our whole selves to work. And that's what we did. 150 interns and employees came in on mornings, weekends, and nights to create this outside of, and in addition to, their day jobs.
Director Liam McGregor went on to say that Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet. Through the musical, the team hopes to speak to every person who dreams of being part of something big. Be sure to watch it because it's hilarious and insightful.
