Just imagine starting your day with an unexpected burst of joy – that’s precisely what happened to a group of London workers attending the opening ceremony of the Trade Desk’s new office.
In a video shared on YouTube, the day began with what seemed like a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony. Two men, garbed in security uniforms, prepared to unfurl a lengthy white ribbon. As they did so, laughter echoed through the crowd. But then, one of the men uttered the sentence that transformed the ceremony into an event to remember: “We can make this a little more exciting for ya.”
In an instant, the ordinarily quiet scene broke into a vivacious dance party. As the Beatles’ “Come Together” began to play, the man who had promised to add some excitement launched into a spontaneous dance. Moments later, his colleague followed suit, transforming the office lobby into a makeshift dance floor.
The surprise didn’t stop there. The music rapidly switched to a Bee Gees’ hit, and like a wave catching momentum, more people got swept up in the rhythm. It was an impressive sight as more attendees showed off their well-timed dance moves, joining the unexpected performance.
The music changed, and the dance continued for nearly six magical minutes, with new people hopping in to join the ensemble. As the clip drew to a close, a woman armed with an oversized pair of scissors made her way through the dancing crowd to officially inaugurate the office building.
“Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.” – Psalm 33:3
