Ad Agency Creates Funny Spoof Video That Parodies Rival Firm’s ‘Superdesk’
By Jillian Wong, 10 Apr 2014
When advertising agency The Barbarian Group unveiled its amazing ‘Superdesk’ that seats all 125 of its employees, accompanied by a video tour of its new office, it caused a stir online.
Not to be outdone, Gerry Graf of fellow agency Barton F. Graf 9000 created a spoof video to show off its impressive interior too.
Narrated in a deadpan style, he introduces the office’s “continuous floor”, carefully pointing out that “it’s not a surfboard”, its “see-through” windows, the “62 discontinuous desks” that provide personal space for employees, and pillars that prevent the floors above from falling.
Graf is a friend of Barbarian Group chairman Benjamin Palmer, and he admitted that he was a little jealous when he saw the video. “You have to admit the office looks pretty cool. So last Friday I started talking about what we had and it just came to me that we had a continuous floor,” he told Fast Company.
Watch the spoof below and the video of the ‘Superdesk’ after.
