12 Days of Goulet (The Musical)
About a year and a half ago, Rachel and I had an idea to put together a 12 Days of Christmas-style video with fountain pen stuff in the lyrics. It was a fleeting idea, we never really hashed it out, and nothing happened with it. Since then we've been hiring more and more people on our team with musical talent, and being that we are musicians ourselves, we have always talked about wanting to put something musical together as a company.
Who really brought this video to fruition this year was Jenni, our amazing videographer, who took this somewhat fragmented concept of music and fountain pens and put it together into this video you see here today. Greg is on our Fulfillment Team and really did a great job pulling together the audio! We had just about our whole company pitch in here (check out the credits at 4:42), with all instruments, recording, mixing, video, singing (and lip synching), twirling, leaping, cheesy posing, and "costume design" done in-house by our team. We've been working on it for the last month and a half, during what has ended up being the busiest time that our company has ever seen with a new website launch and a bustling holiday season!
The Goulet Pen Company's purpose is to "Prove that business can be personal". This video brought together our personal talents in a way that allowed us to showcase some of what we're about here as a company. It was really great to take some time to do this as a unifying team-building activity, and have a video we think will be really amusing for you.
We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and we hope that you enjoy watching this video as much as we did making it (though I doubt that is possible!).
