This keeps getting removed from Youtube, but I saved a copy. Its from 2002, an internal motivation video for GM employees. Lots of hope followed by failure.

That was a great video. They were using the tag phase of 'Day 1' (now their latest PR video, now showing, is using Chapter 1).

There are still a lot of 'car guys' in GM (but again the bean counters pushed for mediocrity and for the most part got it). Even though that video was shot in '02, doesn't matter, since it's ancient history and all the car companies took a hit; just some had a little more resources that kept them from going down like GM and Chrysler.

And I don't believe the video showed hope (it was trying to tell management) you can't rest on your laurels, and it was time get going again and innovate.
