Editor's Picks: Be True to Your School
There were a few unwritten rules at the day camp I attended as a child: Rain was to be called "liquid sunshine," Quench gum was currency, and Fridays were Beach Boys days. The end of every week held eight hours of non-stop Beach Boys tunes over the loudspeakers. Thus, at a young age, I learned every word of the entire Beach Boys collection and would belt out "Help Me, Rhonda" whenever it pleased me, much to the disdain of anyone within earshot. (Sidenote: Liquid sunshine actually sounds really scary.)
Today, as I was sitting at my desk sing-screaming "Be True to Your School" to my coworkers, I realized how promotionally appropriate the song is. The promotional products listed in the song go as follows: letterman's jacket, car decals, pom-poms. That does not even include the implied ones: football uniforms, school flags and other school apparel, accessories and face tattoos to "let your colors fly."
So celebrate the start of a new school year by cranking up "California Girls" and serenading your clients, or just selling to them. Your choice.
