Man brings emotional support clown to a meeting, fired

Post by Michael »

He knew he was going to get fired so he brought an emotional support clown to the meeting...
A Kiwi adman has chosen an unusual support person to accompany him to a redundancy meeting.

In lieu of the usual suspects of a friend, colleague or family member, the member of the creative team at FCB hired a professional clown to attend the meeting with him.
The Herald understands that the clown blew up balloons and folded them into a series of animals throughout the meeting.

It's further understood that the clown mimed crying when the redundancy paperwork was handed over to the staffer.

That's a boss move. I'd hire him.

Outstanding.

I have a question about this though,
In lieu of the usual suspects of a friend, colleague or family member, the member of the creative team at FCB hired a professional clown to attend the meeting with him.
Is bringing another person, other than maybe your attorney, to a meeting in which you are about to be fired a thing? Who brings along another person to sit there and watch them get fired?
