Pandemic Goes Out With An Office Space Printer Bash
Last week, we learned that Mercenaries developer Pandemic Studios had been shut down and over 200 employees were left jobless.
Somewhat ironically, Pandemic's new game - The Saboteur - is still on track, as the project has passed to another development team within EA. We have high hopes for that one but in the meantime, those 200 employees probably weren't too happy about being laid off and so, the situation was ripe for an "Office Space" recreation. Most everyone is familiar with the now legendary scene in the cult classic film; it's when three guys - two of whom were freshly canned - take a problematic printer out into a field and beat it to pieces in slo-mo. Can't we all hear the corresponding song in our heads now...? If not, check out the hilarious video of ex-Pandemic workers giving a printer a very similar treatment. This time, however, they're using more than just a baseball bat; check out the sledgehammer and crowbar! Somebody should probably teach that dude how to swing a sledge, but other than that, it's pretty damn funny and likely quite satisfying for the guys in question. Well, maybe.
I would've just popped the video in here but there's definitely some graphic lyrics in that song so you guys will just have to follow the link. Trust me, it's worth it.
