Have you ever wanted to do something like this?

Oh, he seems very well-adjusted.

At one point, towards the end, you see a guy recording the whole thing on his cellphone. That footage is out there, too. There are those who say this is staged, a creation by a Russian amateur comedy troupe, but I don't believe that, as I'm not sure there's any comedy in Russia.

It does seem odd to me that no one really tried to stop him, but if it was staged the woman who gets a monitor in the face at the beginning must be one hell of a good sport.

Turtle said...

This has already been exposed as a theatrical stunt. Notice that none of the monitors are burdened by anything so mundane as a cord?

Still, it does fulfill a few fantasies...

Even in Russia no one has old school tube-style monitors anymore.

I went on a bit of a mission to try and find out if it was real or not and kept coming across articles and people saying that its got something to do with the film Wanted starring James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman.

But yep, no chords there, and the old cathode ray tube monitors there also like Jakob says...also nineteen inch cathode ray tubes way a freaking ton….though, he does look like he’s lifting something quite heavy there maybe...or maybe not?... Its all been very interesting this whole thing though.

I found this about the video on youtube
"The infamous "office meltdown" video was actually a promo for movie "Wanted". More to that, it was a part of video by a Russian group called Delta. Their song is a part of Russian version of "Wanted" soundtrack."

Parts of it look real-ish to me. . . or they could just be really good actors (I'm speaking of the people in the background, who appear to be genuinely scared and concerned). . .however, that big-ass hammer/mallet thingy he starts wielding. . . heck, ALL offices have those on premise, right? I keep mine right under my desk for dealing with the unruly public! Also, if it's real, I can't believe no contacted building security. . . it sure has sparked a lot of convo, though, real or not!
