UberConference and Potbelly Partner to “Take Back The Lunch Break”

We launched UberConference to provide a unique conferencing experience. Back then, we believed the conference call was the most boring - and sometimes frustrating - thing in the world to coordinate. The 1-800 numbers & desk phones, the 10-digit PINs, and 15 different voices trying to talk at once. There are beloved memes and videos to highlight this point.

In an effort to make conferencing a more enjoyable experience, our company’s former creative director and co-founder, Alex Cornell, composed and performed a catchy hold song. UberConference’s “I’m on Hold” has since become a fan favorite and our “calling card,” if you will. That said, it’s been a while since we refreshed our music library and provided our customers with a fun new jam.

So today, we are pleased to announce our first-ever partnership with Potbelly Sandwich Shop, in honor of “Take Back The Lunch Break Day.” We are excited to introduce a new hold song for our users! By now you know us, and we weren’t about to release some teeny-bopper banger or a calming piece of Muzak. Instead, through the grand vision of Potbelly’s marketing team, we worked with internet sensation, DJ, and “Loop Daddy” Marc Rebillet to develop an original piece of music. And it does not suck.

In fact, listening to Marc’s song makes me want to schedule more meetings. Just not during lunch.

Want to experience more of this goodness? Check out the song on YouTube or on SoundCloud, as well as hilarious additional on-hold tracks by Armchair Expert music director Bob Mervak and song-a-day YouTube star Jonathan Mann.
