In this awards video, Motiva Enterprises shows its appreciation for the workers at the company’s Port Arthur refinery. The company video was filmed at the Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum with a frame story of the host, David Bartholdi, traveling back in time to become a cowboy in the early 20th century. Bartholdi ties the awards and recognition categories to aspects of work and daily life in a Texas boomtown, and ceremony even includes a couple of scenes reflecting bar fights and gun duels from old Western movies.
