Nothing makes me want to rock out more than a Survivor cover… and security!

First of all, thanks to John M for calling me on my poor bombastic 80s hair rock band recall skills… I had originally said it was a Journey cover. Eye of the Tiger was, of course, brought to us by equally mulleted power ballad band Survivor.k.

Keith Jentoft over at RSI has been hard at work.

Driven by his creative muse (the security industry and that rush you get from apprehending the bad guys), Jentoft has whipped up another video-verification-vaunting rock video.

If you loved “Video Killed the Blind PIR” (and who didn’t have it stuck in their heads for all of ISC?), you’re going to love the new installment.

Keith assures me there will be an air-guitar rock-out competition at ESX. So change up those air-strings, grow out the mullet, don your best leopard-print leotards and get ready to rock with security!

Enjoy “The Eye of the Motion Viewer.”

<p>Sorry to be &ldquo;that guy&rdquo;, but &ldquo;Eye of the Tiger&rdquo; was originally written and performed by the band Survivor, not Journey (not trying to be malicious, just clarifying). Song credits aside, it&rsquo;s another great example of creative marketing by Mr. Jentoft as it is both entertaining and shows the benefits of their video PIR in the field. The security industry could use more creative marketing like this (though hopefully not all jumping on the cover song bandwagon).</p>
