This insane chant my company wants us to do...

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Do you think that if you had a successful business you would gradually transition it into it being a cult or like a Sea Org type thing? I mean why not

They can't physically harm you so instead of whips they have you chant because they can't see the harm done mentally

really hoping the video gives insight into how the various "we"s are emphasized

Speaker: We were not born to privilege
And we don’t have millions
But what do we have?
Reply: We have the champions!
Speaker: When the sun sets
And the shadows fill the streets,
Who are we to stay?
Reply: We are the champions!
Speaker: When the road is rough
And the challenge tough
Who are we to fight?
Reply: We are the champions!

Every once in a while, you're outside, and you find a huge crowd of people in suits and ties. They take up all of the sidewalk. They're all drunk. They just got out of a mandatory company party in the nearest wooden-submarine-like Japanese restaurant whose menu consists of whatever fell off the garbage truck as it peeled away from a flock of particularly aggressive crows that morning. They're standing a circle, completely of their own accord. The boss is nowhere in sight. Someone in this group of juniors influenced them all to get into this circle. Anyway, they start chanting something. You can hardly understand what it is, even if you fluently understand the language. What the hell are they doing? The chant soon becomes a scream. This group of maybe forty young men and women in suits are screaming in unison.

What the hell is that about? The answer is: nothing. They're screaming for screaming's sake. They're doing this to show that they have some energy — any energy at all. This is a subtle hint: Their lives, bodies, and souls belong to the company; the energy that resides in those bodies is all to the company's benefit. If you say it like that, it comes out as sensationalist and weird. Well, it's that kind of thing. You know how football players get into a huddle before a game, bump fists and yell "GOOOOOO TEAM"? It's like that, only they're doing it after successfully Achievement Unlocked: The Drunkening. High school students will do it to celebrate their anticipation of successful performance on, like, college entrance exams. Certain times of the year roll around, and you can't navigate a well-populated street without encountering a large group of screaming, chanting businesspeople. Sometimes, I stand and watch them as they continue to chant for literally a half an hour at a time. Lots of people who I meet as tourists seem enamored with the idea when they first encounter it. It's a different kind of culture. Well, no one likes it after a while, least of all the people who are doing it.

All these retail company chanting videos capture the absolute malaise of a 7AM shift.
