Scottish firm Blackadders has created a Yuletide video that brings all the seasonal joy of stumbling across yellow snow.
Having previously trampled on Tarantino and Friends, Blackadders has now set its sights on the festive season. Employment lawyers at the firm lip sync to Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" before opening their office Secret Santa presents.
Mid lip sync, partner Simon Allison gives the middle finger to the angel on the tree:
At most firms, the office Secret Santa is a chance to ridicule colleagues safe in the knowledge that it stays behind closed doors. At Blackadders, Christmas is a time for giving and oversharing.
Duncan sends a message to the outside world via his hat:
Presumably one of the 52 things is record your time:
"This isn't going in that video is it?"
It becomes clear who bought the plunger for Duncan:
Elijah wouldn't have agreed to this.
Nor would the dog.
"Can I go back to work now?"
RollOnFriday raises a glass to Blackadders, but it's time for the firm to step away from the mulled wine. The Christmas video, available to all mankind, can be seen in full here.
fair play to blackadders - I think their filmography is delightful!
at this point Blackadders are basically carrying RoF, they pop up every 3 weeks or so to pad out the dutifully repeated press releases on 80% trainee retenion that are the bulk of the "news"
this vid made me laugh. and love the fact that the Blackadders team are brave enough to have a laugh at themselves....
Does the fact that I follow these guys on Twitter amount to verified CPD or just a guilty secret. Well done Blackadders. Another classic!
