Ballmer’s last dance

September 27, 2013

Bill Rigby reporting Steve Ballmer farewell event:

The CEO, whose screeching and dancing at company events is the stuff of YouTube legend, stormed the stage to “Can’t Hold Us” by Seattle rap/producer duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and kept up his usual high tempo, according to several people present at the employee-only meeting.

He departed to the strains of Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” the song played at Microsoft’s first employee meeting in 1983, followed by “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from the finale of “Dirty Dancing,” getting a standing ovation from the 13,000 or so Microsoft full-time employees in attendance.

Oh. My. God. Just go already.
