Planit Scares the S**t out of Employees for Holiday Card

As an agency, the folks over at Baltimore’s Planit live by the mantra that “the best ideas should scare you.” So this year, for their annual outlandish holiday card, they decided to scare their employees and record their priceless reactions for the enjoyment of friends and clients.

We’ve seen a lot of holiday cards here this month, but none of them feature a demonic-looking elf popping out of a large present to scare employees. So Planit definitely gets points for originality, and watching people get the crap scared out of them is always entertaining, so there’s really nothing not to like about Planit’s holiday card. We applaud their unusual approach to spreading holiday cheer fear. This kind of thing can only work once, though, as these employees will likely be apprehensive about any large packages, caroling, cameras, etc. in the future.
