A Deloitte consultant wrote a cringeworthy pop song to celebrate being hired and it's being shared round the worldGet the Full StorySchool of Rock
A new hire at the global consultancy firm Deloitte recorded a bizarre song to celebrate getting the job.
He sent it to all his superiors, and now it's being shared by the company's nearly 300,000 employees round the world.
Deloitte workers have a bizarre history of recording songs celebrating their employer.
When most people land their dream job their immediate reaction is to celebrate, and maybe write a note to their employer thanking them for the opportunity.
But one new analyst at the Dusseldorf, Germany, office of global consultancy firm Deloitte decided to go one step further — by writing and recording an extraordinary song to "express my joy" and sending it to colleagues at the company.
Stefan Hansen urged his superiors and colleagues to forward his message on to others, and it is now being shared throughout Deloitte's 263,000 employees around the world, from Dublin to Toronto.
It really has to be heard to be believed.
"We're searching, for a voice of our own, to make an impact that matters," Hansen, a business analyst with a focus on supply chain management, sings joyfully.
And then, as the maracas and keyboard hit the crescendo: "Deloitte is calling, is calling, is calling out your name!"
You can listen to the song in all its glory below:
Here are the lyrics if you want to sing along for yourself:

And here's the full email he sent to colleagues, which was shared on Reddit earlier on Thursday:
my name is Stefan Hansen und I joined Deloitte Consulting in January 2018 as a Business Analyst in the Service Line Enterprise Applications SAP with the focus on Supply Chain Management.
I studied in M.Sc. Industrial Engineering and Management with specialization in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technical University of Darmstadt. During my master studies, I specialized in Logistics and Power Engineering. Prior to this, I gained working experiences through employments at renowned companies of the Automotive Industry e.g. BMW AG, Audi AG, GKN Driveline .
I'm really happy to be part of Deloitte now. To express my joy, I wrote a song for you.
I hope you like it. If you like the song, share it with other colleagues and put me on CC to connect with as many colleagues as possible at the beginning.
Thank you and best regards,
Colleagues have reacted to Hansen's song with a mixture of horror and admiration.
"Made it to the Dublin office today, we were all embarrassed for him," one wrote on Reddit.
"I got this email yesterday. I love how it made it all the way across the world in like 2 days. It makes me so proud of our global network!" another said — before adding that they were being sarcastic.
Some people are being more positive about Hansen's musical talents. "As far as songs go made by an accountant it's not terrible. It's even somewhat hitting the right notes without auto-tune by the sounds of it," another Reddit user wrote. "But a seemingly serious big 4 song - my god the cringe overpowering."
This is not the first time Deloitte employees have been overcome with an urge to express their company loyalty through song.
In 2011, someone made a questionable Notorious B.I.G. song about the "Big Four" accounting firm, which included such choice lyrics as " I made the change to a Deloitte guy Packed up my bags and started to fly And its so much fun building slides with my peeps all day Too much text: it's the Deloitte way."

The Beatles's legendary song "Let It Be" has also been covered by Deloitte enthusiasts who wanted to get musical about their admiration for the company.
