How Not to Get Hired at DreamWorks

In 2011, Christopher Woodring applied for a job at DreamWorks. After a few weeks, he hadn't heard back from them, so he sent them this video. He was subsequently banned by DreamWorks from working for them in any capacity ever.

This is Almost Too Evil...

There's always that one person.

That rude, inconsiderate jackass who won't stop talking or texting during a performance. Being a professional theater critic, Kevin Williamson has experienced his fair share of these people. However, he finally snapped on the night of May 14th.

Williamson was attending a cabaret performance of Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. If you're unfamiliar with cabaret seating, it's basically done with the audience in small groups at round tables of six or seven. Williamson happened to be sitting next to a woman who would not stop using her phone, even after the performance had started. Upon Williamson telling the woman to please stop, her response was: "so don't look."

Blood pressure rising. Keep calm. Breathe.

After a few more minutes, Williamson told her again to stop texting, asking her sarcastically if "she had special permission to use her phone during the performance." Her response? "Mind your own business."

That's it. I am so done. Williamson then promptly became the hero the NYC Standard Highline Carnival Tent deserves, and snatched the phone from the woman's hand, and threw it across the room and out the door. Williamson received a slap in the face from the woman and a quick ousting from the theater. Was it worth it? Totally. Let's all follow Kevin Williamson's example and not put up with people's rude crap.

Oh, and according to Williamson, the performance was top-notch.

"We at Shell want everyone to feel as "pumped" as we do about freeing much-needed Arctic resources. After all, the Arctic is the common heritage of all humanity, and what we do there matters to everyone. That's why Shell is inviting you to create your very own Let's Go! ad for our Arctic campaign. We'll feature it on our website, and you can show all your Facebook friends how pumped you are to seize the day's opportunities too. The best submissions will win exciting prizes—including an all-expenses-paid trip to see the Kulluk in action!"

-- Taken from Shell's 'Arctic Ready' Campaign website

Now you can show all your Facebook friends how pumped you are to ruin the environment seize the day's opportunities too!

UPDATE: Sadly, it's a fake website. Too bad too! It was such a promising trolling opportunity. Oh well. However, the fact that Shell is beginning to drill in the Arctic is still very real. So much so that Greenpeace decided to deploy two submarines to keep tabs on Shell's drilling operations just to make sure they don't try to pull a fast one on us.

Trollin' Hard for My Money
