I still get a chuckle over that vid.
I do have some minor critiques though.
A.) They're not showing their "war face" and being super deadpan serious. You can't sing the Oompa Loompa song in the military and not be super
deadpan serious. It just doesn't work.
B.) They aren't organized into Baritones, First and Second Tenors and they kind of need singing lessons. I know most people don't equate Oompa
Loompas with High Art, but I do.
C.) There isn't musical accompaniment. You're telling me there wasn't a section of this troup that could at least play the kazoo? I'm not buying
it. Sad day for the military if not one soldier isn't armed with a small, goofy musical instrument. Personally, I would have perfered a nice mouth
harp to go along with the kazoo accompaniment.
Despite these OBVIOUS FLAWS to the performance, I don't think I would have made them run 10 Miles in the rain as punishment.
Maybe just printed out a company photo with all their faces photoshopped in Oompa Loompa orangeface and and hung that puppy in the entrance of their
Some of America's finest, nonetheless.
*edit because by now we all know can't spell worth a flip sometimes.
