Digital Grunt

Some jokers threw together this spoof of visual effects industry work.
It will appeal to anyone who works with computers, clients and deadlines.
(In all fairness, my boss is way nicer than the one in the movie.)

Now, I'm just saying, this is why I work on a Mac....
but seriously this is painful to watch because we've all been there....or felt like it.

Luckily in academia I no longer have the stress the intensely for-profit companies have.

Spam Bot,
Don't let the door hit you...
Stay g,
I suspect their video will become a viral hit. So many people work with computers and/or trying to please unreasonable folks. The latter was certainly true in my retail days. I'm glad your mac and (and current job) have kept some of the craziness away.
Sally,
As an animator, I bet you liked the "Make it faster! Make it slower! Make it more mysterious!" part.

I liked the client on his Segway too.

Somebody get this man the Zen "You will die" watch, stat! :D

Sally,
The seqway baffles me. Everyone I've seen using one so far is using it somewhere where there's only a short distance to walk. Then again, maybe they're just a good way to show off.
Jesse,
Yes, order that guy a watch, A.S.A.P.!
