TAG’s APAC team performs hilarious rendition of “Don’t Stop Me Now”

The coronavirus may have changed travel as we know it, but there is no stopping TAG’s Asia-Pacific team.

While the global events and group travel management company’s team may have joined much of the employed workforce by working at home, TAG APAC has returned to its roots as an entertainment and touring company to create a collaborative take on the classic Queen tune “Don’t Stop Me Now” with, frankly, hilarious results.

TAG APAC managing director Shane Barr, who stars in the clip, said creating the video was a joy during difficult times for the entertainment industry.

“Our team may be working out of the office, but we have been on call 24/7 to provide support and guidance for our clients,” he said.

“It’s also been a hugely challenging period for our team who have had to find new ways to go about providing the level of service we are proud of.

“So, to have the chance to do something fun, something uplifting and positive, to be shared across the industry with all our colleagues and partners, has been a blast for everyone.”

Check out TAG’s feel-good video below:

 

With offices across Australia and Singapore – along with the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States – TAG works closely with the corporate, music touring, film and media, and events industries.

The company has also retained a full team working across its numerous divisions through what has been a challenging 2020.
