Wunderman Duo, Apparently Inspired by ‘Klout Bombing’ Op-Ed, Create PSA

A month or so ago, Megan Wintersteen, who serves as strategic planner at Virgina digital shop Modea, whipped up an op-ed on this here site that defined the art of “Klout bombing,” which is an internet prank that, as you can see in the “PSA” above, could essentially kill someone’s sense of self-worth.

Winstersteen’s words have in fact nspired the video, which comes to us from Garth Knutson and Blake Abel, two blokes who work as management supervisor and account executive, respectively, at Wunderman Seattle. The appropriate sad bastard piano complements Knutson’s trials and tribulations at the office, which are the result of, yes, Klout bombing (he does put on decent sad face, we must say). Anyhow, the pair has even provided a handy infographic that explains how to “diffuse a Klout bomb,” which you can view here.
