Founder’s day a W+K tradition that celebrates the past, but also to greet the future. Each of our global office works incredibility hard to come up with a variety of incredible events for this day. This year is the first time W+K Shanghai hosted the founders day by ourselves, so the Founder’s Day committee met secretly for weeks in order to plan for it. After much speculation and excitement, the day finally arrived. That morning, everyone in the office got a letter like this:
Founders Day is all about experiencing things you might not normally experience.
As such, today we’re sending you out into the streets of Shanghai to immerse
yourselves in the diverse culture and practices of this fine city all the while competing for the chance to win SUPER kick ass prizes!
Here’s the deal: You and 6 to 7 others will be grouped together and given a few
simple challenges to complete between 12:00PM to 7:30PM
Good lucky! Get set, ready, Go!
Now let’s have a look at how “Simple” these tasks!
One person on the team must go out and buy the most outrageous set of pajamas set (and
house slippers) they can find under 75RMB and wear them around all day. Your challenge is to take as many pictures as you can on the street with as many random people as you can find.
Two people on the team must get Ken and Barbie makeovers at the Barbie Superstore.
You will have your make-up done, pick out an outfit and then strut your stuff on the catwalk.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a Sherpa’s delivery guy? Well now you have the chance to find out!
This is strictly for one of the MEN on the team! One man must get waxed at Helen’s Nail.
Down there. It’s something women have been doing for ages…so bend over and take one
for the team, boys. You have the option of a Bikini, Brazilian, or, if you dare, the “Playboy”.
Head to Partyworld on Xinhui Lu and sing your heart out, on camera. One singer has to
take the lead and perform their favorite song while the other team members play “backup”. Dance moves are a bonus.
If you’ve dreamed of a white or red wedding, today’s your big day!
If you can move, groove, and shout to the rhythm this assignment is up your alley. But
unfortunately for the rest of us we’ll have to figure it out, too. Your assignment is two-fold. First, you will go to Dragon studio to learn a group choreographed dance. And then your team must perform it somewhere public–you decide where…extra cred to a big audience if they like it. This must be a video recorded performance.
Go to Lorna’s bar. One team member must drink a shot, give Lorna a hug, and leave.
Finally, at 7pm, all teams meet up at the XingJiang Restaurant. Food, Bellydancers, Fortuneteller and Xinjiang Beers reached the climax. Happy founder’s day!
