Rooster Tackles Sexual Harassment in Latest Original Video

We’ve got a goofy Friday video here from the  folks over at New York agency Rooster, certainly no strangers to silliness.

In the latest Rooster original, Michael Luciano and Philip Matarese engage in some investigative journalism to explore the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. Matarese goes undercover as a woman (unconvincingly) to see firsthand what sexual harassment in the workplace is like. But Matarese and Luciano are disappointed to find that their co-workers mostly just ignore Matarese. They spend most of the 3:19 video hoping in vain for any sign of sexual harassment. The surprise is that Matarese enjoys playing the part of a woman a little more than expected. In the end, Luciano finds a very flimsy excuse to call out an employee for sexual harassment, and Matarese makes an important decision. As you can surmise, this is a lot of off-the-wall silliness from Rooser, but it suffers from one thing: a lack of chief Gavin McInness. McInness, now perhaps most famous for teaching us all how to fight a baby, was the key to the success of previous Rooster Originals, and the Rooster crowd has a hard time getting any laughs without him. Hopefully he makes a return in the next installment.
