Lessons from Geese

Recommended Posts

I have been on a boring training course today :roll: , but the highlight was a 3 minute dvd entitled 'Lessons from Geese' produced by Saatchi and Saatchi as a motivational and team building film. I was particularly struck by the music, which none of the management could identify :? .


I have tried to find a preview online, or even full credits, but to no avail (probably because it is training material?).


Anyone seen this clip of film and recognise the music?

the music was probably "Groovin with Mr Bloe" (1960s???)


is that the thing about flying geese changing places - so they share the wind drag - and if one drops down two others go with it until it is safe or dead etc...?

Sorry, I was too quick to ask for help on this one :oops: I found a site which shows the training material and mentions the song, Groovin with Mr Bloe, by Mr Bloe.


Yes Egluntine, the wording is the same, and Phil has the tune, I believe the speech where all this comes from was first made in the early 90's and it is quite famous as far as training material goes.


The message is a good one until you realise that geese also s**t everywhere as well!


Here's a link: http://www.lessonsfromtheworld.com/ click on the word geese at the bottom of the page.

Here's a link to the music: http://www.last.fm/music/Mr.+Bloe This song is on a 3 disc compilation album called True Seventies.


Now anyone in Birmingham in the next few weeks may be treated to the sight of 420 civil servants 'flying' in V formation around the streets to the strains of Groovin with Mr Bloe, honking as we go :shock::roll:


Thanks for your help guys (honk honk)!
