Spreading holiday cheer

12 Dec

I don’t often talk about work , but this week I want to share something really fun that’s happening at the office. I work at Marcus Thomas, an integrated ad agency in Cleveland, and it’s a pretty cool place. We work in a beautiful, creative space, you can bring your dog to the office and our creative team comes up with some amazing ideas.

One of these recent ideas is our 2012 holiday “card.” I put it in quotes because it’s way more than a card, it’s a 5-day holiday carnival. Most companies send an email greeting, but Marcus Thomas gives you the opportunity to dunk people in a giant tank of eggnog.


It’s called ” Get Tanked For Charity,” and here’s how it works: Every day this week there are eight new dunkees to vote for. You can view their plea videos and then vote for the ones you want to see head to the eggnog dunk tank. At 3 p.m., the top three employees with the most votes are sentenced to 40  minutes in the tank. The cool part is that you can actually take a shot at them with a custom-built, real-time softball cannon. Every dunk earns $50 for United Way.

Click here to vote, and come back at 3 p.m. to watch live as our employees get dunked. And sign up to take a shot at them yourself! Seeing someone fall into a tank of eggnog will certainly put you in the holiday spirit! Merry Christmas!
