Paper is one of the most basic and essential features of an office. As mundane as it may be-(and they don’t call it a “plain” sheet of paper for nothing)-paper has had a resurgence in funny, thanks first to the hit show The Office. A new series of commercials from Domtar Paper (which has striking resemblance to Dunder Mifflin) exhibit exactly what would happen in a world where paper was strictly mediated.
We actually found these episodes from Domtar to be more relevant than anything recently on The Office. These episodes all focus on what would happen if paper rationing was implemented into an office, with extreme chaos and hilarity ensuing.
We found a lot of truth in what these shorts show. All important documents from I9’s to W2’s are still signed and made on paper. As well nothing beats that feeling of high lighting notes on paper, or the simplicity of running off a dozens copies of your latest proposal. Paper it seems is still king when it comes to the office, and those who constantly try to say otherwise should take note.
In a new mock commercial by Identity Guard, which is featured below, they showcase an imaginary product called StealMyID.com, which helps people get their identity stolen. The video then asks if losing your identity is something you really want to do.
In the video it also mentions how all it takes is a name, and a social security number, to get access to some ones personal finances and in essence the ability to destroy their credit score. This brings up a good point in how important credit monitoring is, and how you should go over a credit card statement line by line to make sure that no one is using your account. Also it is important that your credit score is not harmed which can cause you to not get a loan for a new home, or even for a car payment. If you follow the video to the site www.stealmyid.com the site is also done up in a fake infomercialish way that while comical also further illustrates how important it is to not just give away your credit card information online. The site then leads you to http://www.identityguard.com which further discusses the problem with online identity theft as well as a launchpad for the purchase of their product line.
We are big fans of infogramics, especially when they teach a lessons and the Identity Guard site was full them, one of our favorites was this one, which has been reproduced below:
All in all a funny yet still informing commercial for a great product that actually works, so if you want to find out more watch the above video and check out StealMyID.com.
