SEGA Office Pranks


We work hard here at SEGA, but we also like to have a bit of fun at the office. (That’s our office building in that photo. Before anyone asks, no it’s not abandoned. One of the floors in the building is available for rent.) But for those times when someone goes away on an extended or especially fun vacation and we’re all left here to keep working… well, we like to have more than a bit of fun.

Let’s set the scene. It’s Friday afternoon after a long work week. I’m sitting at my desk typing away, when I hear some loud voices behind me. We have a pretty open work environment of half-wall cubicles, and we can be a boisterous bunch, so it’s not all that unusual to hear people talking loudly or laughing about something. But this kept going on. And on. So I went to investigate.

Turns out that Jen was going to return from a 2-week vacation on the following Monday. And some people had gotten… restless. You might even say rowdy. And decided to fill her cubicle with crunched up magazine pages. A lot of them. We had lots of fun and laughs in the hour it took us to get it done. How did Jen react? Well, you’ll just have to watch the video.

I’m not sure any of us are planning an extended vacation any time soon!
