It is amazing that those people stood around watching for 2 minutes.

I would have been long gone! Ain't my computer, ain't my desk, ain't my problem. Seeya!

Fill up some fire extinguishers with orange foam tinged with cs gas.

Orange Man Follies!

Doubt it's fake. That one woman that got the monitor thrown at her really looked like she got hurt. You don't fake something like that.

It is amazing those people sat around and did nothing for that long. They don't attack him, but they don't leave either.

OMG!! I almost died laughing for the whole time. Funny sh6t, thanks keffer!

Looks real. But how is it connected to Countrywide?

redondo_beach_dude said...

That's in Russia... there's a housing crash in Russia?

To those saying its fake - for what reason??

This would have cost big bucks if it was all faked. You have the cost of all those computers and computer monitors, you have about 20 actors who would want to be paid with about 10 of them needing to be stunt men and woman as things are thrown at them. You would need to find an office to rent that you could trash for a day.

You would probably be looking at $30,000 for what profit?

You could post a video of anything on the Internet and you'll always get a bunch of idiots claiming it's "fake".

First of all, there are 2 angles on this video (one with audio) and none of it looks fake. It is from Russia. The guy gets tazed in the video with audio. There are also a couple articles on this incident in the Russian media.

One woman gets a CRT thrown at her. The CRT cords would come loose if you yanked it off the desk like he did, so people claiming "it's not plugged in" have no point.

Lastly, why in the hell would someone go through all this trouble just to post a video on the internet? It's real. That's the only common sense explanation.

I'm not stopping now! Not after I hit that woman in the face with the monitor.

Meanwhile, the retard is sitting there with his little phone camera. Oh please sir stop! I might slap you on the wrist.

Man that looked like his last day unpacking the desk.

Guess the guy helping unpack the desk is his manager? Probably was a dick and went to the other chicks desk. I bet she said something and he snapped. Prime target for the monitor.

The guys probably thinking -- I'm fucked on my house, job ... f it. I threw the monitor ... f .. better throw another and get max out of this..

It's not fake but it's not Countrywide. They are speaking Russian in the second video.

Chris said...

I would like to think if I was in that situation I would have ran up to him and did one of those running at full speed, full momentum sucker punches to his face and knocked him out cold after he hit that woman with the monitor.

Someone tell the CFC bagholders, er shareholders that things aren't going very well. The stock is about $5 too high...

Looks like me at my office every day.

That looks like my Monday morning.

augh, those fuck86g TPS reports!

I'm suspicious of the two monitors with no cables. I've never seen crt's that don't have the video cable permanently attached.

I went looking at office space today since I need a larger one and half of them still have mortgage company signs on the doors. One of them was busy moving out when I came to look.

k.w. - southern ca. said...

Since when do they allow employees access to axes and sledge hammers in an office space? :)

It's interesting though, because as "Chris" pointed out, the first woman looked like she really got hurt.

wings said...

I like videos like this.

Shows the underlying humanity of the average 150 lbs. of American biomass that made evil villains like Mozillo rich!

You're gonna' see more freakouts like this in the near future.

The next freakouts will be gas-related.

Yay!

formosan80 said...

You can see the second camera in the first video. This makes me believe that it is real. Scary... Anyway, it sure beats Office Space

They didn't stop him because they were thinking of doing it to... he just had a shorter fuse.

The writing was on the wall.

You might also notice that the guy next to him abruptly fell on his butt too. Doesn't look fake to me.

I worked at a computer company back in the 80's

A guy slapped a girl in the lunch room, over some misunderstanding,

Well, I misunderstood as well and drove him through the drywall into another room,

Lost my job.....but messed him up good!!!!!!

It's not Countrywide (no orange people from what I can see). It's called 'sarcasm'

Meanwhile, I'm glad I don't work in cube-land... Just one more crap idea of the late twentieth century that needs to die

Rise up sheeple! Fight cube-land! Tear down the walls!

(but don't throw computer monitors at people)

Cubicles are not necessarily evil. I used to work for a well known company, where everybody had their own office. Heck I had so much seniority that I even had a window office. And yet, I quit for a new gig where I get to sit in a cube all day.

The freaking office wasn't nearly enough to compensate for the stress, dysfunctional co-workers and stupid office politics. I gladly took the cube in order to work with sane people again.

keith, if it wasn't for cubicles, guys would get in trouble with the politically correct feminist, who would get mad if you are day dreaming and start looking at legs and ass.....

It happens every day. The lesson to learn is “don’t sell yourself short”. If you are truly that unhappy where you work, leave. If the fellow in the video were in California, he would be sued by the worker he injured and possibly by every one else in the room. Unfortunately anyone injuring the violent one “the real men” could also be sued. In the end all is lost for the perpetrator and the "real men".

Don’t sell yourself short. Get out.
most "real men" i know are missing teeth or living on the street.

it would have been funny if he had managed to shove that lamp post into the copier and then gotten electrocuted.

Too bad all of those "men" standing around watching this guy flip out didn't have the stones to do something about it. The guy was a real threat to everyone around him and everyone was too worried to try and stop him. Where are the men inthis country??

Anonymous said...

The men standing around were all Obama democrats. They figured the guy would just stop if they blamed themselves, apologized for hurting his feelings and let him do what he wanted.

Fake or not, I believe people would stand around and watch. Something similar happened in my office between two guys brutally slugging it, neither one caring about the people or equipment and everyone else just stood there and watched. I was the one who ran to get security. If they aren't going to help then why didn't they at least leave. The answer scares me.

I call 'bullshit' on this one.

Well, hate to admit this, but I work at Countrywide, and I highly doubt that is a CW office.

Wherever it is however, there is no way in HELL I would have stayed around past 5 seconds....

And WTF was up with the sledgehammer?? Yeeeahhhh...everyone keeps one of those around the office when they need to unleash.....LOL

Stop puttting ideas in my head Keith--I could go postal any day now as it is.

Jennifer said...

Jesus, an analogy was being drawn between the video and what disgruntled/angry workers are capable of. It's not rocket science.

And the recent Hartford, Connecticut incident where an old man was hit by a car and people just stood around and looked at him rather than trying to help by, at the very least, stopping oncoming traffic illustrates how pathetic most people are.

Of course, the brainiac on this list who suggested that cubicles are necessary for the prevention of women getting mad at men for their workplace objectification of women's legs and asses also illustrates patheticness but in a different way.

Hey Keith I'm baaaack! Geez, I've been gone for a few months and come back to this crazy video! Next we'll start hearing about people jumping off of buildings and bridges...

O-M-G! I can't believe this guy completely cracked up like that. What's more... I can't believe everyone else standing around watching him go crazy, like entertainment!

Sh*t, the minute I would have seen him throwing that monitor my behind would have immediately left the building!

I guess the old adage would apply here, 'Stupid is as stupid does'....

To those of you who can't believe people stand around like that, it's true.

I had a bad day once and said something to someone parked in a fire lane in front of the grocery store. He told me to call the cops if I didn't like it, and I thought that was a good attitude he had.

I started by jumping up on his hood and stomping dents in it. He started yelling at me to get off his car, but he never got out. Meanwhile as I kept stomping and telling him to call the cops if he didn't like it, people were going in and out of the store. People looked, but nobody did anything. I finally jumped off the car, kicked a few dents in the side panels, pissed on the trunk, then went around and spit in the guy's face and told him to get out and start something he couldn't stop.

What amazed me afterward was that the guy didn't even try to drive and get me off his car. I guess he would have been in bigger trouble if he left wifey inside the store.

I could go on and recall other situations, but this one is top of mind because I was personally involved in it. You can almost do whatever you want and most people won't say a thing.
