So. Hypothetically. If you were organising an organisation-wide scavenger hunt for pirate booty… How would you go about promoting that? And getting people to dress up? (Like Pirates… Duh.)
I dunno. My promo ideas all seem to hinge pretty heavily on everyone else being just as excited as I am about pirates. History says that this might not actually be the case. In fact, a lot of the organisation where I work seem to come here solely for the purpose of… Working… Weird, right?
I’m thinking of a modest campaign asking people: “Will yarr drunken sailors be joinin’ us for a bottle o’ rum on Friday night?” Or “Bring all ye Pirate booty for a chance to be in tarr conquer the bottle o’ Liquorlands finest Rum” Or even the short, and snappy “Present yarrselves in yarr finest dress, yarr worthless Bilge rats!” Ooh, I like that one…
Or maybe I’ll just slowly convert the elevators into pirate ships over the next week and a half? Yes. that would be subtle. Or I could stage a multi-floor pirate sword-fight in order to get people excited? Fights are exciting.
Although… I can’t see them being happy with me for devoting too much resource to jumping around like a giant loon wearing an eyepatch. Hmm. Back to the draaarrrring board.
