Enjoyment is the follow-up DVD release to indie band Kaiser Chiefs' highly successful debut album Employment, released on November 28, 2005. The main focus of the DVD is an approximately 90 minute documentary directed by Walpole-based artist Cally Collomon, with an unusual narration by Bill Nighy and over an hour of live footage shot from various points in the band's career, ranging from their time as indie band Parva to the 2005 tour of Employment. Fitting with the documentary theme of the DVD, there are bizarre segments between the footage featuring interviews with who are supposedly the younger and older selves of the bandmembers. Besides the documentary, the DVD also includes all the band's music videos up to 2005's "Modern Way", plus footage from their live performances at summer festivals and access to the official Kaiser Chiefs website.

I’m really an ultimate — my enjoyment comes from not a recognition of kind of what I’ve accomplished as a player in the league, my enjoyment comes from the competition more so than anything. Even yesterday, I was thinking about competing. I was thinking about, this whole year, about competing. I wasn’t thinking about anything other than that. So when the time comes to think about post-career and second career, I’ll think about those things. It’s just when you’re 44, I guess you get asked about that a lot. And a lot of people thought I was done playing football in 2015. A lot of people in 2016 said, ‘You’re done.’ A lot of people in 2018, and when I left the Patriots, they said, ‘You’re done.’.
