Last night was the 18th annual IESE Thanksgiving, organized this year by Lindy and Abe, and attended by some 160 faculty members and students. Chris and I cohosted, which was interesting because the dinner started at 7pm and at 6:45 we were just starting to figure out what to say. Nevermind! It went fine.
After dinner, the talent show started, and we debuted our band, The Rhythm Method, with our rendition of "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley. I've been told this video doesn't do our performance justice.... so you'll just have to imagine we sounded even better!
We were followed by some other impressive and hilarious acts, like a group of first year guys who sang a few Spanish songs (and got the crowd singing along), and a hilarious skit about cultural differences written by Noshaba. Then we closed the show with our rendition of "I Will Survive."
But the fun wasn't over yet because David and Kyle then started their portion of the program. They were the hosts of an auction to raise money for charity, and produced some of the most hilarious ad-libbed one-liners I've ever heard. Anyway, I don't know if it was our fabulous auctioneers, the spirit of Thanksgiving, or the influence of the all-included wine, but we managed to raise twice as much money as last year: a whopping 18,000 euro.
