As much as I was more on #TeamAmerican than #TeamUSAirways pre-merger, I’ve long had respect for US Airways’ upper management team, and in particular Doug Parker. He seems like a relatable guy, and a lot less out-of-touch than the CEOs of some other airlines. And given the labor issues at many airlines, I think that’s a good thing.
For the past several years, American has had a Halloween party at headquarters, which took place this past Friday. Not only were there some epic costumes, but the executives did a little “performance,” if you can call it that.
So, what did American’s top executives come dressed as for this year’s “performance?” Via Star-Telegram:
American chief executive Doug Parker, with his best black eyeliner, impersonated Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones at the Fort Worth-based carrier’s Halloween celebration.
But it was president Scott Kirby who stole the show, channeling his inner Taylor Swift in a performance of “Bad Blood.” He also made a celebrity-worth entrance, riding on the back of a Harley driven by executive vice president Elise Eberwein, who was dressed as Kendrick Lamar (who appeared in Swift’s “Bad Blood” video.)
Here’s the video:
Goodness, Scott Kirby dressed as Taylor Swift is something, alright!
