TDA_Boulder Excuses Ragged Employees with ‘Happy Hour Virus’

Screen Shot 2013-11-14 at 1.40.47 AM

This little side project doesn’t seem to have much of a purpose, but TDA_Boulder built one of those trick-your-boss programs called “Happy Hour Virus.” Frustrated employees can choose from one of three templates that make a computer screen look like it has a virus or technical error and then bounce to a bar for some early liquid therapy. Of course, you can get out of the screen by pressing ESC, which is necessary, but also renders the whole idea fairly useless. It’s not as plausible as the March Madness fake spreadsheets that can hide scores and brackets (as long as you work with spreadsheets regularly). Symbolically, the project is meant to stress the respectable work/personal-life balance present at the agency, but other than that, there’s not much to digest here.  It may be Thursday, but this feels like a Friday item. Credits after the jump.
