Cubicle Worker Going Berserk

Still on my sabbatical but had to get these videos up of a Russian cubicle worker going absolutely berserk. Oh...my...God.

Now, I'm not saying what the guy did was right. But for anybody trapped in a cubicle hell job, you can at least understand it.

First is the security camera footage...



And here's another angle of the craziness from a co-worker's camera phone, complete with sound...



Okay, back to...uh...sabbitcalling.

Three possible explanations:
1. He runs a college football website and his members antics finally drove him insane.
2. He attended the Woody Hayes
weekend course on "How to Get Ahead in Business".
3. He found out that the only two choices he has to vote for President are Obama and McCain.

More likely he just discovered his wife and daughter going at it on a Russian porn site so they could get bought and whisked off to America.


Or his team just lost to the SEC again.

Employees registered with the company's Anger Management/Sensitivity Training seminars should not be allowed unlimited amounts of caffeine.

$20 says he graduated, or at least attended, The University of Ohio State.

"And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day.

So true.

Bryan said...

Staged.

phil said...

If it was staged, then the two squirrels weren't really married?

(lol beast, my whole office loved that one. all you guys are too funny)

I always thought it was "merry" but it appears that there is a big debate over this, which is hilarious. Best. Movie. EvAr!

I always took it as "merry". That's 2 votes...

Mike said...

This video is fake and is part of a viral marketing campaign. Notice that the irate worker is working on his computer but when he throw the monitor, no cables are attached. This had a lot of people fooled when it originally hit the net, but has since proven to be an elaborate fake.

Eric said...

Yeah, it's fake. I was watching Attack of the Show and they confirmed it was a marketing campaign.

beast in 'bama said...

A marketing campaign...

Just what are they selling, lithium?

whetstonebuck said...

It's not fake. My cousin has a friend that was told by his great uncle who was told by a Masonic Lodge brother who heard it from a 7-11 clerk that his brother was in the office when it went down.

He just found he didn't save with Geico...:)

"He just found he didn't save with Geico...:)"

Whoa! So that whole psycho tap-dance is him trying to kill the gecko?

phil said...

I clearly see the conspiracy at 1:56 on the tape. The girl in the lower right portion of the tape gives a high-five to a co-worker whom we only see a portion of. The girl looks a lot like Catie, but I'm not sure. Obviously, they planned on sending this poor misunderstood cubicle worker over the top. Well, it succeeded, didn't it. Are you happy now? ARE YOU?! Damn you women of Corporate America. (any similarity to Catie is purely coincidental and is not intended to smear, defame, or libel Catie in any way.)

Vadatripp said...

For Catie:

New U-M apparel.

So, when can we expect the new avatar?

Catie said...

LOL@Phil and Vada

This scene could be a similar reaction from a stressed out doctoral student! :P

Interesting that VS is going with Michigan and NOT UOS!! (Conflict of interest and all....) Or could it be that for marketing purposes they know that they would sell far more Michigan gear than UOS gear??

My baby (21 years old) just arrived and he and I are hitting the town in A2 and heading over to the Jack Johnson Concert tonight.....Yay Me!

whetstonebuck said...

I rest my case.

It's the chocolate milk in the weight room.

Panties and pads. Go Blue.

looks like he has some Barwis secret sauce

Mikoyan said...

Hmmm...another company from Columbus....

Wow.

whetstonebuck said...

"Hmmm...another company from Columbus...."

You say that as though it were a secret.

And I always wondered why the office sledge hammer was so damn inconvenient to get to. Now I know.
