What a feeling as Nokia employees randomly break into song and dance

If you’ve ever stuck around Nokia’s “booth” at Mobile World Congress you’ll know it’s actually quite massive (we’ll have photos later).  The area is open during the convention where analysts and weary journalists can relax, have some coffee and get work done.

As tradition, every few hours the Nokia ringtone will blare across the speakers and the Nokia employees working the floor will break out into song and dance. It’s hilarious. It’s entertaining and we kind of love Nokia for bringing levity to an otherwise unexciting day.

So tune in and sing along to Irene Cara’s “What A Feeling (Flashdance)”. You can just follow the giant Lumia in the back if you don’t know the lyrics. (And yes, this was recorded on a Lumia 920).

What a feeling as Nokia employees randomly break into song and dance

Lolz. Very nice. Despite still being in dire straits, Nokia is still showing a level of festivity and can break even the most boring moment of monotony. Wow, I said a mouthful! ;-)

Dire strights? Nokia is doing rather well on the road to recovery. Nokia stock is currently a buy. The company is still holding billions. they have made all the right moves to regain stability. they are no longer bleeding funds. so dire straights no recovering yes.

@jabtano: They are doing well in recovery, but to me they're still not out of the woods yet. Things can still happen between now and the future.

The overwhelming majority of Nokia employees that i have met have nothing but good things to say about the company. "Awesome" is the word most used, so...

As an ex Nokia employee, I have nothing but love and support for a company that treats its employees the way they have.  There has been tough times but how they have handled them shows why most Nokians will always bleed Blue.

Hi Evilrobot! We love doing this! Greetings from the show floor.
Those who don't want to (or can) sing or dance don't have to - it's completely voluntary!
With a big happy smile :-)

I remember working as a Mechanic around 1992, everytime the Chilli Peppers song, Under the Bridge was on the Radio, the whole Shop song... Good times....  Girls loved it.
On the video, WTH did you use, no way that was a Nokia 920..

Love the typical pony tailed sound 'engineer' in the foreground doing his very best to look important.. Having been in the business I still chuckle at these. ;)
 
From the looks of the board he's using Nokia paid way too much for sound..
 

LOL. I just burst out laughing in class just now. Thanks for that. I've never seen this before, when did this take place?

I would wish that they danced to Harlem Shake instead, but with +40,000 videos already on Youtube involving the song, it would be pretty pointless.
