Yesterday, a rather embarrassing video popped up on various blogs here in Niceland. It was from the so-called “Baugur Day” in 2007, when Baugur Group threw the staff party of a lifetime down in Monaco, and it looks to be a promotional video for the company before all went tits-up [and you can pretty much see why it did].
The funny thing is that, soon after the video began creating a buzz here yesterday, it was removed from YouTube, allegedly due to copyright issues. The owner of the copyright was one Saga Film, which at the time was owned by Baugur Group [and which today is probably owned by one of the banks – although methinks in-house loyalties still run deep].
This caused a stir in and of itself. However, the video has now popped up in a different location on the intertubes [funny how things have a way of doing that] and, for all interested, can be viewed here.
