All Overworked Professionals Will LOL At This “Employee Appreciation Day” Video

Every once in a while, we fail. Even when we’ve tried our absolute best, things don’t always work out in our favor. Maybe you put in long hours to win a pitch, poured all of your energy into appeasing a bitchy client or spent the last ten weekends slaving over an Excel worksheet, but in the end, didn’t quite make the grade. That’s how Toronto advertising agency Union felt after getting shortlisted for Strategy Magazine’s Agency Of The Year awards.

Even though the hardworking folks from Union weren’t recognized for their hard work, the head honchos created a hilarious video about how they rewarded their employees … in the most sadistic way possible. 

Union explains: 

This business of advertising isn’t easy. There are people who put their blood, sweat and tears into the campaigns they produce. That’s why, when an agency like Union gets shortlisted for Strategy’s Agency of the Year awards, the painstaking time and effort that goes into the creative product is worth celebrating. And the shop knew just what gift to give its staffers for a job well done.

Sit back, relax, and revel in the fact that you WILL be rewarded for all of your hard work … kind of. [Ad Week]
