Ever wonder what the Onion
offices in Chicago look like? This Onion
satirical-news video was shot here in our office. Specifically, it was shot last week, during the work day, which meant the kitchen was full of black plastic sheeting and people mixing up fake blood, while we got to listen to this guy shriek and rant and rave for more than four hours throughout the day. Most of the workers seen in the video are our actual sales and support staff. This is the front part of the office; the A.V. Club is in back, down the long hallway briefly glimpsed at one point during the video.
It was a weird day in the office, but certainly weirder for the people trying to get actual work done in that area.Blood-Drenched, Berserk CEO Demands More Web Videos
