Flip Like We Do

August 4, 2010 - 74 Comments

magnum opus noun The best, most popular, or most renowned achievement of an author or artist, representing his major life effort; a masterpiece

Many moons ago, Andrew Phillips of Cisco Channels reached out to Greg Justice, The World’s Most Interesting Intern, with the suggestion that the two lads form a Cisco rap crew. The rest is history.

That.  Just. Happened.  For more epic greatness, follow these cats on Twitter: @GregJustice and @AndrewJohnP.

Also, BIG props to my boy, Eric, the EMC intern, for this week’s top intern rap response:

I’ll continue to post weekly on Thanks for tuning in!

  1. I agree with mike. Stop listening to these cheerleaders. You should retire this bit immediately!! Even John Cena thinks that Rap is whack.

  2. Greg Justice, I think you'll have a career in video production if the Cisco gig doesn't work out!

  3. Oh my. I was expecting some epic cringe moments but this is better than most of the stuff in the charts. Cisco interns: respect due!

  4. The videos are becoming more and more potential way of marking now a days.Wealthy Affiliate is responsible for my 6 figure a year income, my total freedom, my free time with my family, my many vacations, my house, my cars, and everything else that I have as a result of succeeding at internet marketing.

  5. Nice video, well done buddy! :)

  6. This is really terrible., Stop listening to these cheerleaders. You should retire this bit immediately!! Even John Cena thinks that Rap is whack.

  7. nice posting, great video, just add a little T-Pain and you have yourself a top 40 hit.

  8. Awesome interns! wish we had such ppl at our work places (sigh! :()

  9. Very cool, adding you on twitter. Nice job! :)

  10. Awesome work!.. Can't wait to see more videos!.

  11. Nice, but I kept hoping for an actual flip...before my son was born in the '80s I could still do one, and even now I can still turn a cartwheel. :-)

  12. Watch out Andy Samberg and crew.

  13. LOL! This was the perfect way for me to start a Monday morning. That was hawt!

I think we can do this by 2020, although some of the other energy requirements set by the government seem to be too lofty at this point…This is only a starting point and still it requires many such initiatives from other Governments and Organizations of other countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.This will help us to facilitate our coming generations to live healthy on this planet.^0^1^^^0^0 39425^9330^Dan^^^^2010-09-09 17:16:04^2010-09-09 17:16:04^Fred,Thanks for the update, although no timeline at all is very disappointing. Those of us that provide enterprise-level support but still choose to use iDevices would benefit greatly from this tool. The ability to VNC, SSH, and RDP from my iPhone would truly be a godsend.

Originally it was when iOS 4 dropped, then it got pushed to summer, and now it sounds like there isn't any targeted release date whatsoever?^0^1^^^0^0 33338^6710^online share trading^^^^2010-07-17 20:22:16^2010-07-17 20:22:16^I recently came across your article and have been reading along.
