Arriving To An Office Filled With Red Bull
There are a few things that help us run from day to day here at RustyBrick. One is caffeine the other is a good sense of humor. Today both of these things came together and combined into something great, a prank on Barry.
First a little bit of back story. A few of us in the office don't drink coffee and/or just prefer Red Bull. We drink quite a lot of it... exhibit a: The Wall of Red Bull Cans. That little wall grabbed someone at Red Bull's attention and scored us some Free Red Bull :)
That wall was completed back in January of 2009. Ever since then we have still be collecting cans and just waiting for the right opportunity to do something cool with them. This week Barry was out of town at SES Chicago (recap here at Search Engine Roundtable) so we decided to fill his office with the cans. Overall I think we had around 1500 cans, they definitely didn't take up as much of the office as we had initially hoped, but the results were still pretty good. Here is a video of us setting his office:
Here are a few pictures of the office after we have completed the setup. You will notice a few tweaks after the end of the video, we moved things around for a little better effect.
You will also notice a laptop that we set up on his desk facing the door. We set up a script on the laptop to start recording video at 6 am so that we could catch Barry's reaction when he saw his office. Here it is:
UPDATE: The first 10 seconds of this video is pure darkness as we wait for Barry to open the door.
Hope you all enjoyed that prank as much as I enjoyed drinking all that Red Bull :)
