English Description
An officer worker types away in his gray, featureless office cubicle. The boss is seen walking through the office. He stops at the office worker’s cubicle and says “Happy Birthday, John” and hands him a $5 coffee card. In the US, a $5 gift card is a very typical and boring gift often used in the corporate workplace. You would expect a small thanks from the worker as befits the gift, but instead, the worker is overcome with happiness and begins to laugh maniacally while hugging his boss in an inappropriate manner. To an American audience, the scene reads as ironic and you know that a gift card would never get this reaction. An overly sarcastic voiceover explains that if you really want to give an exciting gift – give a lottery scratch card instead.
