What If Every Fictional Company Held a Job Fair?
The video you have the chance to see here is on one in the popular comedy series on Cracked.com. If you never heard of it before, or better put, if you have been living under a rock for the past ten years, Cracked is a humor website with over 300 million monthly page views. The website was founded in 2005, by Jack O’Brien and is currently owned by E. W. Scripps. It is descended from Cracked magazine, which dates back to 1958.
In the cartoon you are about to see, Cracked authors and animators explore the idea of a large job fair held by fictional companies. What is a fictional company? All those companies we see on cartoons or movies, like the legendary ACME for example. And Cracked would not be Cracked if they did not make a parody of the baseline stories of each company’s movie and dissect pop culture symbols just to prove a point. Let us give you just a sneak peek: you can see Bruce Wayne's butler, Alfred Pennyworth, and the Dark Knight in full suit standing in front of a Wayne Enterprises and prospecting the protagonist in the video. Batman is portrayed as the dim-witted and yet passionate character who presumably representing the management of the company, while Alfred, appropriate, organized and proactive as ever, carries all the weight of the inc responsibilities.
We don’t want to spoil it for you by saying more. Pour yourselves a cup of coffee and enjoy the video!
