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!).

  2. Very nice!
    I think I liked the "3 flex pens" singers the best. But everyone else did great, too.

    I also liked that one of my favorite fountain pens (the Platinum Preppy) was able to wiggle into the rhyming scheme for the "first day" slot.

  5. So much fun! But I'm left curious. Just what would it cost for the 12 Days of Goulet? Uh, with bags of samples, not billions. :)

  14. Great video! What fun … particularly the constantly increasing number of ink samples. I put it up on the FPN just in case someone doesn't get the newsletter.

  16. OMG, that was AWESOME! I loved how you worked the fountain pen products so cleverly in to mimic the traditional lyrics, and was impressed with the musical talent there. Plus, I laughed all the way through. Merry Christmas and thank you all for the great gift! :)

  19. What a hoot! Just awesome. I particularly liked how someone got the bright idea that "cartridge" and "partridge" rhyme and I guess it just cascaded from there.... :-) Although it took me a while to realize that you were singing "five o rings" (insert headslap .gif here). And the fact that the number of samples increased exponentially.... Sorry guys, but that's why I *don't* do Inkdrop -- I'd never be able to keep up as is! Happy Holidays to all of yinz.

  24. MeRrY ChRiStMAs to all of you Goulet gang!
    Excellent piece of video. If you happened to be in ad field, you would make ad companies run away. Nice to see you all charged up, beaming with festive mood. Compliments to everyone who conceptualized this idea and transformed it into reality. Best job...
    God bless you all......

  28. OMG this was so adorable! Loved the puns and rhyming and the 3 flex pen singers. Well, I loved everything. As a musician myself, I just loved the whole musical element. I have to agree with the person who said this is their favorite version of the 12 Days of Christmas. So fun, so joyful! Thanks for all the looooove!

  34. Excellent musical! It's nice to be able to put a face to a name to those people who worked on my order. Does the Goulet Company pipe in Christmas music into the warehouse and offices during the holidays? Maybe you could add the "12 Days of Goulet" to the mix.
