You know all these agencies that are trying to re-imagine themselves as product innovators and inventors? Yeah, those agencies. Well, apart from the fact that most of the time it just looks like
they're fooling around on an elementary school playground instead of, you know, doing actual work, sometimes...all that fooling around nets something interesting.
Note that I didn't say
valuable or innovative or productive or game-changing or anything remotely having to do with advancing marketing strategy. No, this little time waster from Nashville-based "ad agency by day, invention
lab by night" RedPepper is pure folly. Pure nonsense. And an utter waste of resources.
Then again, most of the time it's this sort of agency work that's actually worth giving a look.
Because, after all, this business is so incredibly intense and taxing we need a break every once in a while.
And so I give you the Roomba-powered
Bot.This little f*cker roams around the office loudly beeping and sharing such inanities as the fact that it's Taco Tuesday or that it's time to get the dancing shoes on and shake
your booty or stalking you while you're in the stall taking a sh*t or rudely talking over the agency's talking head while he's trying to pimp their next Kickstarter project.
course, the whole thing is just an ad for Slack, a productivity application the agency uses to get its real work done. You know, when they're not creating stupid Slackbot Bots
