A video produced by Bloomsbury staff here in the UK has been taking publishing by storm this afternoon. The footage, which has been loaded onto YouTube, shows Executive Director Richard Charkin and various members of his London team dancing around the offices to the ‘Glee’ version of “Don’t Stop Believin”.
As many in the publishing industry are working flat out on their autumn schedules or preparing for their visits to the Frankfurt Book Fair in a couple of weeks time, this has come as a source of light relief and has caused much hilarity. There have been endless comments on Twitter about the video including one staff member who said:’ Every computer I’ve walked past in the 4th Estate office is now watching the Bloomsbury video’… Views of the video surged from about 25 to more than 300 in just over an hour.
