It was a rockin’ time at American Airlines headquarters on Friday.

American chief executive Doug Parker, with his best black eyeliner, impersonated Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones at the Fort Worth-based carrier’s Halloween celebration. Lip syncing to “Satisfaction,” Parker along with other top executives at American entertained costumed employees.

But it was president Scott Kirby who stole the show, channeling his inner Taylor Swift in a performance of “Bad Blood.” He also made a celebrity-worth entrance, riding on the back of a Harley driven by executive vice president Elise Eberwein, who was dressed as Kendrick Lamar (who appeared in Swift’s “Bad Blood” video.)

The executives performed their routine several times on Friday on a mini-tour of the company’s two headquarters buildings, the new integrated operations center and for a flight attendant training class.
