I'm not going to write you a love song... oh wait.
I filmed (and performed in a few) nearly 40 custom-written love songs for a bunch of strangers on the internet. They were customers of the company I work for, and we wanted to thank them for saying lovely things about us.

For Valentine's Day, me and a few other team members at our startup had the crazy idea of writing and recording love songs for our customers - we even took live requests yesterday. The results range from funny to silly to schmaltzy, but it is quite fun. If you can't be bothered with the whole list, here's our five favourites.

awesome. It could have gone really really wrong, but it's light hearted, gently funny and genuine. I bet a big brand rips this off in less than a week.

That's a really great idea and nicely executed.

Thanks Foci and bob! We were super nervous before we put out the first batch of videos, but everyone took it in the spirit intended! Last year we sent boxes of thank you chocolates to customers and that was really fun too, but this felt like an even better way to say thanks.
