Fun with the Wizard


About two weeks ago, Brian Kwong (@kwongeriffic) a.k.a “The Salesforce Wizard” (@SFDCWizard) contacted me about collaborating with him on a tongue-in-cheek parody of Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler.” This song and video are related to his upcoming talk at Dreamforce 2014 in just a few short weeks. This morning over at “Wizard News”, Brian released the fruits of our labor upon the Salesforce community, complete with a blooper reel.

Brian already had a good portion of the lyrics written and with some help from Mark Ross (@markross__c) and myself, had the thing settled and ready to fly rather quickly. We didn’t get to practice the lyrics with the music until the day we recorded so it took us about a dozen attempts to get close enough for community consumption. I personally want to thank Brian for asking me to participate in such shenanigans — after all I loves me some shenanigans and tomfoolery. The fact that I got to hang with an MVP for couple hours was just the proverbial icing on the cake.

So head over to the site and check it out. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it…and “we’re sorry!”
