Description: Here's Rod Canion and (most of) the original senior VPs for Compaq Computer Corporation, rapping(!) and acting goofy for the cameras in a music video, circa 1990. Why this "Beat Big Blue" video seemed necessary to make is known only to those who participated (if even they can recall). It was a very different time for Compaq back then... Streams of seemingly endless cash flowed like wine through department budgets. Indeed, at this point in history those at the helm of Compaq felt that they could do no fiscal wrong and, for a while, they were right. So, for your musical enjoyment(?), here's Rod and his home boys layin' down some bling bling, fat-cat style, big cigars and all! EDITOR NOTE: I had originally labeled this clip as containing the Cpq Board of Directors... that was, of course, erroneous. It finally dawned on me that I was, in fact, seeing the senior VPs - aka Top Brass - that actually ran the place at the time. So, please pardon the incorrect titling in the beginning and end of the video. These things happen. I'm getting old and I had a senior (VP) moment.
