To the shoppers at Walmart but also the workers, relief is on the way! In a recent board meeting, Walmart announced that it was ditching the Celine Dion and Justin Bieber song..
The reaction: The Washington POST summed it up like this:
“The one that seemed to draw the most whoops from the crowd was a pledge to ditch a CD that has apparently been on loop in the stores for months and begun to drive employees crazy. The CD was a punch line multiple times in executives’ presentation to workers, including when a puppet character named Willie joked that being a Wal-Mart store worker was getting dangerous. When Mike Moore, executive vice president of supercenters, asked why, Willie replied, “One of my fellow associates recently developed a serious eye-tic from hearing Celine Dion’s greatest hits on loop in our stores.” Justin Bieber was also name-checked as one of the singers featured on the notorious CD.”
Changes like this will be noticable. The solution: Wal-Mart stores and distribution centers will soon have a new soundtrack that they’re calling Wal-Mart Radio, in which a DJ will spin tunes to be pumped through the stores.. Rockin’ good time with low prices and foreign goods.. the Walmart of the 21st century may have been born with the elimination of DION AND BIEBER into the refuse pile..
