You know you're looking at Youtube. You're doing it right now. Look! There! You're doing it, again! You say you need to escape from the workaday world? Why not just turn your office into your very own Youtube viewscreen?

*EDIT* New Video.

  • this project used a large format printer and a good amount of double sided tape, but this'll even work with some markers and a big roll of paper if you'd like it to.

Step 1: Design and Print

Click on the i on the upper left of the attached images to download them in full size (or you can save the links here and here). These were designed for the inside and outside of Canida's office (looking in on her is looking at the extended edition of Duck Mouse Taxidermy and from her perspective she's watching The Hallway)

I measured her doorway and designed the prints to cover the glass panel inset in the door. The images were stitched together in Photoshop from a number of screen grabs from Youtube. I just erased the video portion, put the screencaps on separate layers, and moved them until they all synced up. Then, I scaled the entire image until it was the same width and height as my doorway measurements.

Step 2: Defy the Office Politics and Your Shogun Overlords by Displaying Your Ninja Tactics

Just cut out your prints, and sneak into the victim's office in the dead of night. Friends and tape are precious allies in this most trying of times.

Step 3: Capture Your Fellow Employees Making Fools of Themselves on Film

This is an important step. This is where the seeds of your labor grow, flower, and bear fruit, especially when you post the pictures for all the internets to see.
