JOBS? ON MY INTERNET?

It's true! Even if you are a magazine cut-out, a Little Person, or trapped inside a TV, there's a job for you on the internet!

it's more likely than you think.

I love old tech videos like this :D thanks EIT!

Voe said...

So the black guy has no clue how the internet works and the white guy is just looking up info on investing and banjos left and right? This video is racist beyond words.

It's all about the 1099 and having your own company. Slave wages are a joke!

I was hoping the black guy on the TV was going to eventually go all, "look, you're an asshole, okay? Shove the internet up your balls."

And why didn't they just film this in a real set? I bet they paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for that CGI lego construction worker.

Rachel Maddows first job!

Why would a 12 year old boy with half a mullet look for a job on the internet?

I think the black guy in the TV was about ready to slap the shit out of that computer nerd.

"I just need a job, muthafucka!"

I want to see more of this one! I do love the "what's an email?" and horrible "surfing" comments in these older tech videos. Makes you realize how much things have changed in how short a time.. and y'know, they're hilariously awkward.

Just go to Yahoo.com and search "jobs". That sounds like a useful, targeted search.

You must be more specific with your search, like "blowjob, rimjob, handjob, or child care job"

...or perhaps become a member of the clergy and get them all?

M.E. said...

Agreed with Ravenhallow, when will the horrible "surfing" puns end? They just get worse and worse.

1. Anyone else catch the N'Sync in there?

2. They couldn't pay an out of work construction worker to do this?

The only career I'm interested in now is becoming a paper cut-out lady.

That teenage girl got pube bangs and all! WTF?!

Anonymous said...

I recognize that girl, I think she grew up and became an actress. And that black guy reminds me of "Ryan" from the new version of V. Any ideas about those two?

That paper lady's on the cover of Time magazine; I don't think she needs a crappy internet job.

Merril Lynch Stock Broker said...

Jobs? Hourly Wages? Meh. I'd rather execute a call option and buy a whole round lot (yes a WHOLE ROUND LOT) of MiTel Networks Closed-End Investment IPO than work for a boss ever again. Yes, I'd end up having realized losses because of the poor structuring of their company and probably won't be able to get any dividend income or capital gains taxes to pay, but it's way better than kissing some bosses ass just to get a pay raise. Or maybe I'll just stick with American Depository Receipts. Companies in Switzerland perhaps?

The girl is Tania Raymonde, better known as Alex Rousseau from LOST. Other than that, such a gem of a video.

Pudding said...

I think the message to be taken away from this is that gay actors are clueless about technology. I could be wrong, I was busy taking notes.

I was just caught watching this video at work, and I got fired.

Oh well, I guess I'll YAHOO! 'Jobs' and find another job in no time.

Thank you internet, and thank you EiT for getting me fired!

I keep expecting the playskool construction worker to say "Gay Luigi?"

The girl in the video is my wife, no joke, and she is NOT Tania Raymonde.
