To celebrate their 40th anniversary, CPA firm WithumSmith+Brown has released the latest in their annual “State of the Firm,” videos, amid anticipation that has grown every year since their “I Gotta Feeling” video in 2011 went viral.

This year, the video follows firm staff and leadership as they rush to get managing partner and CEO Bill Hagaman his presentation file before the firm’s State of the Firm event Monday night in New Jersey, where the video itself was also debuted.

After the video, which ends with Hagaman walking to the stage, was screened, he took the stage in real time to announce that 40 extra videos will be released throughout the year. These “culture shorts” will debut just about every week on Instagram (@withumcpa) and feature staff having fun and reflecting on the culture within the firm.

Past WS+B videos have included lip dubs and flash mobs. The 40th anniversary 2014 “Secret Video Files” video is below or on the firm’s Youtube channel.
