Weird Al Yankovic helps us with Cross-platform Innovation

Released exclusively by the… Wallstreet Journal?!

The song, from Yankovic’s new album “Mandatory Fun,” is in the style of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” by Crosby, Stills & Nash. The song features Yankovic harmonizing with himself on lyrics constructed of corporate jargon, like “operationalize our strategies” and “leverage our core competencies,” while the animated whiteboard video depicts a live-action hand that is drawing illustrations to go with the words. – WSJ

Time to laugh at ourselves when we allow business jargon to rule our thinking. Weird Al wags the finger like no other in this amazing string of buzz words and diagrams.

Here are the lyrics so you can follow along:

“Mission Statement”

We must all efficiently
Operationalize our strategies
Invest in world-class technology
And leverage our core competencies
In order to holistically administrate
Exceptional synergy
We’ll set a brand trajectory
Using management’s philosophy
Advance our market share vis-à-vis
Our proven methodology
With strong commitment to quality
Effectively enhancing corporate synergy
Transitioning our company
By awareness of functionality
Promoting viability
Providing our supply chain with diversity
We will distill our identity
Through client-centric solutions
And synergy

At the end of the day
We must monetize our assets
The fundamentals of change
Can you visualize a value-added experience?
That will grow the business infrastructure and
Monetize our assets
Monetize our assets
Monetize our assets

Bringing to the table
Our capitalized reputation
Proactively overseeing
Day-to-day operations
Services and deliverables
With cross-platform innovation
Networking, soon will bring, seamless integration
Robust and scalable, bleeding-edge and next-generation
Best of breed
We’ll succeed
In achieving globalization

And gaining traction with our resources in the marketplace
It’s mission-critical to stay incentivized
Our business plan will foster flexible solutions for our customer base
If you can’t think outside the box
You’ll be downsized
It’s a paradigm shift!
Well, it’s a paradigm shift, now!
