The Most Interesting Member of the Cisco Channels Crew

- June 25, 2010 - 19 Comments

We enjoyed Greg’s “The World’s Most Interesting Intern” video so much that we decided, not only to challenge his rap skills, but to make our own video to introduce the newest addition to our staff.

Meet Andrew Phillips: “The World’s Most Interesting Member of the Cisco Channels Crew!”

He’s joining the Cisco Channels team to help create videos, edit, and use his musical talents as well. See for yourself in his Cisco rap debut video:


Wouldn’t it be great to form a super Cisco rap crew featuring Andrew and Greg? Follow Andrew on Twitter @AndrewJohnP and be sure to watch out for him in upcoming videos.

And, read on to catch the lyrics to his rap:

It’s a shout out to my boy Greg. You know how we do, baby.

Ain’t nothin’ but love here man. Not tryin’ to ‘dis yo video at all. I think we should form a rap team. That’s what I’m sayin’, dude. Comeon…let’s do it.



Come on, man, let’s form a little rap crew.

I work for Cisco, and so do you.

I think we could really make a great team.

I know you really wanna work with me.


Man, I’m not trying to disgrace you.

I’m just jealous I ain’t part of your Cisco rap crew.

I’ve been livin’ in the Bay since day one.

We should partner up and make a rap together, son.

I’m also courteous and affable.

and hey my badge is ALSO retractable.

Sure, I may not be as tall as you.

But, I’m down with giraffes, too.

I ain’t good at playing basketball.

But, hey man…I’ll cheer you on while I’m making a call.

When I spit rhymes, I’m also in it to win.

And, I know all the same little acronyms.

There’s two things you should know about ME.

I wear a black suit and I rep the Burberry.

People be lookin’ at me so fresh, so clean,

They be shocked when they find out I’m only 23.

These are just a few reasons why I think we should make a team.

Cuz, I know we could blow up the Cisco Scene.

Whatchu say, man? Let’s give it a chance.

Roll with me and I think we could really advance.
