Net-a-Porter CEO Mark Sebba got more than he bargained for when he showed up to his last day of work before retiring from the online fashion retailer.

Instead of a normal day of the office, Sebba was greeted by samba dancers, a choir, a mariachi band, acrobats, and hundreds of staff in the office (and all over the world via video) singing and dancing on top of their desks.

The crowd sang along to a rendition of Aloe Blacc’s “The Man” (which repeats “he’s the man” over and over again) as a camera followed him around the office, as he takes in what was happening.

The video is pretty heart-warming. Watch the whole thing here.

At the end of the video, Sebba reaches his desk and is handed a coffee – presumably what happens every morning. He is then handed a microphone to address the crowd, and says:

“Thank you very much everybody. I’m a bit overwhelmed… but, uh, how about getting back to work?” he joked.
