Click Here For Your Free ‘Holiday Hangover Helper’

shutterstock_91899770Are you going to a company holiday party this season? Do you still have to show up at the office the following day? If you answered “yes” to both of those questions then you might just want to check out Canadian agency High Road Communications‘ “Holiday Hangover Helper” project.

To participate, simply visit the URL and enter the date of the upcoming company hoedown at which you might just have one too many. Then use the agency’s super-simple instructions to schedule your own “fake morning-after meeting” so you don’t have to sit through another annoying, totally unproductive hourlong lecture disguised as a strategy session.

The buzzwords are all here: “content marketing strategy,” “paid media amplification,” “integrated experiential ideation”…

(That last one might be a Pink Floyd album or a description of Kanye’s latest tour. We’re not quite sure.)

The site will then schedule a “real” meeting on your Google calendar, complete with some barely-helpful hints about overcoming that annoying headache.

Oh, and while your forehead and the top of your desk get to know each other a little better, you might want to scroll through this WikiHow piece on how to treat said hangover. Water, coffee, aspirin, starches, et cetera.

Slow clap, High Road.
