Awesome boardroom MV I saw in 07 and no one believes me

Post by Talynt » Sat Aug 15, 2009 12:25 am

SOMEWHERE near 6 and E in 07 was a fairly large art car that cruised by 3 or 4 times that I haven't been able to track down.

additionally, it managed to pull a harvey (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheHarvey) and no one else ever saw it.


it was a large, ~15 person boardroom table with old laptops glued to it. the front of the car had an easel with the "red profit margin line" graph on it, and people in 3 piece suits would ride around conducting a meeting.

Amazing. "As you can see from the graph, my ability to draw a red line up and down while moving has improved significantly this quarter"

any hints?

This one time at Burning Man... My friend told me a story of a Boardroom-
He 'Curtis' said that they were ALL dressed up in suit & tie work outfits- cruising by their camp - outer ring 10 -one morning and Curtis offered them coffee by saying
'sorry Boss I'm late' - and the main guy told him- to dress better at work and that it looked like he was camping clothes on and just woke up... Any way it was a Playa moment for Sure!! :D :D :D :D

Sooooo yes I Believe you & Curtis 8) 8)

Thanks Cap'n! You have no idea how good it feels to be vindicated w that pic


I'm with the Yearbook at 7:15 and center camp, stop by for the drink I owe you.


And Playa and Sticky, if y'all could get me any more information on who's behind this, I'd definitely appreciate it. Hell, I'll go grab a Goodwill suit and ride around for awhile if there's a mid-upper management position available

Yep.

They snuck up behind me while I was walking along in 2007 and one of the suits yelled,

"YOU'RE LATE FOR THE MEETING!!"

Funny.
