[Friday Fun] WatchGuard’s Security Shop Music Video

First, a fair warning. This post serves no practical purpose, and is just for your entertainment. If you only visit this blog for practical security news and alerts, and you don’t have time for a bit of fun right now, feel free to skip this post. That said, you might find it entertaining, and it does still carry a security theme.

WatchGuard’s a great place to work. To me, one of the most important attributes of a good workplace is great people, and at WatchGuard we have those in spades. Recently, a talented and creative subset of those WatchGuard employees wrote and performed a parody version of Macklemore’s popular Thrift Shop rap. If you haven’t heard of Macklemore, he’s a Seattle-based rapper who recently rocked the Billboard charts with this budget shopper rap anthem. We thought how better to celebrate Macklemore’s success than making our own tongue-in-cheek security tune in this honor. Radio Free Security listeners have already heard this track, but today we bring you the full music video. If you’re up for some InfoSec-themed cheesy fun, watch below.

As an aside, I’m traveling in Singapore this week to speak at security conferences. As a result, I will post the regular WatchGuard Security Week in Review video later than usual. You can expect the “on the road” edition of our weekly video either late Friday or early Saturday. Have a great weekend! — Corey Nachreiner, CISSP (@SecAdept)

—- LYRICS—-

Hey, Jackson! Can we go to WatchGuard?

(Chorus)
I’m gonna block some spam,
Only got one product plugged in the socket
I-I-I’m secure, protected by WatchGuard,
This is freakin awesome!

(Verse 1)
Nah, walk up to the conference like, “what up I got a huge stock”
Got the channel so pumped about the product that we got
Walkin’ n roamin’ round, people tryna come see
All they say is, “damn, that’s a cool ass AP”
Connecting consoles all over like a fiend
APs be all white, cept those LEDs, flashin’ green!
Competitors sweatin’ cuz all their products are cheap plastic
Probably shoulda copied us, everyone thinks ours are fantastic!
(Crissssppppp)
But snaps, not everyone can be WatchGuard! (Trrrruuuuu!)

(Chorus)
I’m gonna block some spam,
Only got one product plugged in the socket
I-I-I’m secure, protected by WatchGuard,
This is freakin awesome!

(Verse 2)
What you know about rockin’ our products for a bargain?
No one can come close, not even by a large margarine.
I’m digging, I’m digging, im searching through the interwebz
One shady website is another man’s privacy!
Thank your granddad’s messin’ with your personal computer
Cleaning up all this Phishing is enough to confuse sea birds (seagull Caws “caw caw”)
So I’m in Sea town, you can find me in the ID (Food Chainz!)
Looking up new threats like a W.G. should properly
Your grammy, your aunty, your momma, your mammy,
I’ll block them malwares and burn up those spammies, first hand, I’ll rock those suckas brotha!
The built in UTM with the anti-virus on that motherboard haha, (match the pitch of the song w/ laugh)
I hit the power on and they stop those viral suckas
Good deals, WatchGuard Tech! Yeah!

(Chorus)
I’m gonna block some spam,
Only got one product plugged in the socket
I-I-I’m secure, protected by WatchGuard,
This is freakin awesome!

(Bridge) 2x
I’ll protect your security codes
I look through LAN cables
While you drinks rootbeer floats
We got your back like a bar of soap

(Chorus)
I’m gonna block some spam,
Only got one product plugged in the socket
I-I-I’m secure, protected by WatchGuard,
This is freakin awesome!
