Hello Finalist Companies & Sponsors!

The Admin Awards has the tradition of creating a fun Video Tribute to Finalists, which will open up the 2021 Admin Awards in. But shhh – it’s a secret….so don’t spill the beans to your Finalist!
You will want to have participated in this come the big day – it opens up the Admin Awards LIVE! Good as Gold Awards Gala and is a huge crowd pleaser!

This year’s Finalist video tribute song is “They Don’t Make Like Me” by Pidgeon John, because, well, there they just don’t make ‘em like your Admin, that’s for sure, and we are all here to make sure they know it!  The nominated Administrative Professional’s supervisors, coworkers, clients and vendors are invited to participate in this year’s video tribute, and have some fun lip-syncing and dancing!

But remember, this is a SURPRISE for your Finalist, so mum’s the word. Video submissions (taken on smartphones, tablets, or video cameras) will be compiled and the final video will open up the 2021Admin Awards LIVE! webcast. Please note that the final cut, and the length of each submission included, is at the discretion of our in-house video producer.

Instructions for Filming and Submitting Your Admin Awards Music Video Footage:

  1. Please record the chorus and any verses of the song to dance to, lip-sync, or act out with your colleagues (while maintaining a safe distance). Also, make sure the CEO is included! Hold the phone HORIZONTALLY!
  2. Be sure to include something in your video that lets the audience know which organization you’re from and/or who you’re supporting i.e. wear company T-shirts, hold up signs, include photos of the finalist you’re supporting, etc.
  3. Whether you’re doing this from the comfort of your home, or office – or wherever, get creative and make it FUN!
  4. Record your video using an iPhone, tablet, smartphone, or video camera in the highest resolution possible. *If you choose to use an iPhone, tablet, or smartphone, please be sure to turn the device horizontally so it’s fixed horizontally NOT vertically, or we cannot use the footage.
  5. Please hold your video recording device as steady as possible, and try to place each singer/dancer, or group, in the center of the frame.
  6. Feel free to play the song while you record and belt out the lyrics. The better matched you are to the song, the better the lip-sync will look! Don’t worry, we’ll be removing the sound from your footage.
  7. Please record from various sections of the song, as opposed to starting from the beginning.
  8. Our producer adds a blooper reel at the end so please include unedited footage
  9. Need dance moves? Google: Vogueing, Line Dancing, The Sprinkler, Walk Like an Egyptian, Conga, Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide

Lyrics for “They Don’t Make ‘Em Like Me” by Pigeon John

(Please see your original Finalist Notification Email for Deadline Instructions)

They don’t make ’em like me no more

They don’t make ’em like me no more (Like, like me no more)

They don’t make ’em like me no more

One thing I know for sure

They don’t make ’em like me no more

Shinin’ like a supernova

Brand new coat hangin’ on my shoulders

I got what you need, I’m your main controller

So hop right in and don’t take it slower

Get on up to my cloud

Ain’t nobody here is takin’ us down

Hit ’em up with the rhythm bangin’ that sound

That’s when we get ’em hit the whole town

I got what you want (What you want)

I got what you need (What you need)

You bring the lock (Bring the lock)

I got the keys (Got the keys)

Can’t turn me on (Can’t turn me on)

Can’t get enough (Can’t get enough)

Don’t fit the box, don’t fit the mould

‘Cause you know I’d just tear it up

They don’t make ’em like me no more (No more)

They don’t make ’em like me no more (Like, like me no more)

They don’t make ’em like me no more

One thing I know for sure

They don’t make ’em like me no more

Make ’em like me no more

One thing I know for sure

They don’t make ’em like me no more

Make ’em like me no more

I flow right through the door

Float like a butterfly, what’s below her?

I say we roll on right through the boulders

And play underneath all the stars above us

Contact! Time to switch up the format

Got that, ride the beat like a hi-hat

All original, classic material

Hands up, straight to the back!

I got what you want (What you want)

I got what you need (What you need)

You bring the lock (Bring the lock)

I got the keys (Got the keys)

Can’t turn me on (Can’t turn me on)

Can’t get enough (Can’t get enough)

Don’t fit the box, don’t fit the mould

‘Cause you know I’d just tear it up

They don’t make ’em like me no more (No more)

They don’t make ’em like me no more (Like, like me no more)

They don’t make ’em like me no more

One thing I know for sure

They don’t make ’em like me no more

Make ’em like me no more

One thing I know for sure

They don’t make them like me no more

Make ’em like me no more

They don’t, they don’t, they don’t, they don’t

Can’t make ’em like me, can’t make ’em like me

They don’t, they don’t, they don’t, they don’t

Can’t make ’em like me, they don’t make ’em like me

No more

Don’t make ’em like me

Don’t make ’em like me no more

Oh! I’m a different breed

They don’t make ’em like me no more

Don’t make ’em like me

One thing I know for sure

They don’t make ’em like me no more

Make ’em like me no more.
