Watch what you tweet! Because your boss is.
Let's talk about that!
♪ (theme music) ♪
- Gooooooood Mythical Morning! - Thankfully, I've never posted something
really, really embarrassing on social media. The worst it has gotten for me is
the typical you're/your or they're/their mixup.
- Ooooh, that's so bad! - And then, of course, when you do
that, it's immediately pointed out by a hundred people.
- Yeah. - And then you're like, "Ohh okay! Sorry!"
- Grammar police! - "I could have just deleted it and
retweeted it, but no, I'm trying to be honest and vulnerable here."
You gotta own that apostrophe whenever you do that. I mean, that's why I--
I'm in constant fear of tweeting anything, that's why I tweet so little, because my
boss might know the truth about me and fire me.
That's right. I look at all your tweets, son. (laughs)
- I ain't got no boss! (laughs) - But today we're gonna be talking,
not about people who just slightly embarrassed themselves, but people
who have done something that was so significant that it led to them losing
their job because-- that's right!-- their bosses found out about it.
Cautionary tales of social media. Example number one: Recent college
graduate Kevin Colvin was-- tsk-- an intern for Anglo Irish Bank.
- Oh. - The American branch.
- That's a very exclusive bank, huh? - (laughs) Sounds a little discriminatory.
- Yeah, I don't know about that. - On October 31st, 2007, at 3:55 PM,
Kevin sent an email to his boss, and I quote, (bro voice) "Something came up
at home and I had to go to New York this morning for the next couple of days."
- Oh, next couple of days, huh? - "I apologize for the delayed notice."
- Oh yeah, sorry about that. - (normally) Um, as it turns out, the
thing that was that "something that came up," wasn't a family emergency, it was
(bro voice) a really great Halloween costume and party.
- (laughs) - (normally) The next day, his boss goes
to Kevin's Facebook page and this is what K-daddy put on his FB.
- (laughs) Oh ho, nice! - Oh, come on, Kevin! He's not even
making eye contact with the camera! Don't wanna look his boss in the face.
'Cause you know he's looking at your Facebook the next day, man! Come on,
- be smart, Tinkerbell! - Yeah, I've never seen Tinkerbell with
- a Busch Light before. - (laughs)
- That's a new level. Tinkerbellnisch. - So his boss sends this email in
response, and I quote: (smoothly) "Thanks for letting us know. Hope
everything is okay in New York. Parentheses: (cool wand)."
- (laughs) Can you imagine the feeling-- - Yeah, it's just like, ooh, I'm gettin'
away with it! I'm gettin' away with it! (high-pitched gasp)
- (laughs) - I didn't get away with it.
Cool wand! What is he-- Ohhhh, wand in one hand, Busch Light in the other hand.
- I remember that. - Must've been that spritely photo
I posted. Here's the other thing his boss did. He had the foresight to copy the
entire company on that email that he sent back to him.
- Oooh. That's deep. - Maximum embarrassment.
- And he was fired. - Yeah. I'm assuming.
- Did I say that? He was fired. - Yeah, he was fired.
Tinkerbell was fired. Okay, back in March of 2013, Taco Bell had a photo contest.
They said, "We want you to submit pictures online of you enjoying our Doritos Cool
- Ranch tacos. - Okay.
So, this is a photo that was submitted by Jj O'Brien Nolan on Taco Bell's
- Facebook feed. - Now, he is enjoying those tacos.
Well, and as you can see, he looks like he might be at a Taco Bell and also might be
a Taco Bell employee, and that is because he IS a Taco Bell employee. Who else gets
that many taco shells to begin with, right?
True. Now, this guy's stupid for a couple of reasons. First of all, before you enter
a contest, you gotta read the fine print, and you know you can't be an employee
- at Taco Bell! - You're not eligible, Jj O'Brien Nolan!
You're not eligible to win! And secondly, (laughs) you're just stupid. I mean,
- that's just stupid! - But hold on. I'm gonna defend him a
little bit, because it said you needed to enjoy it, and I gotta tell ya, I would
enjoy that. Sometimes I just get a pack of Cool Ranch Doritos and I just lick 'em
and nothing else! I mean, think about that.
- (crew laughs) - There's so much, just good different
colored spices on there, and you're just like-- (slurps)
Really, that's why you're eatin' em anyway!
- Hold on, I just had a-- - Think about how good that woulda
been to take the tongue and go (slurps) all the way up the stack of taco shells?
I mean, he enjoyed Doritos Locos Cool Ranch Tacos!
I just had a flashback to college and I remember opening a bag of Doritos
and being like, "They forgot to put the flavoring--"
- No, that never happened, man. - (laughs)
I would end up eating 'em. I wouldn't do that to ya. Anyway, this was taken by
a coworker, and BOTH employees were terminated. Surprise, surprise.
Just for taking the photo? I mean, they cropped out logos and stuff!
The photographer just needs a six-week notice. Six week off.
- I think it was probably worth it. - Unpaid leave or something.
If I had access to that many taco shells, I'd do it too.
You guys have all heard of Scott Bartosiewicz.
- Oh yeah! - You know, he's that semi-famous social
media manager who worked at New Media Strategies.
- Oh, New Media Strategies! Yeah! - He's an awesome professional
- tweeter, right? - Yeah, yeah.
One day, he's driving into work in Detroit and he's caught in traffic and he just
starts fuming. And he wants to tweet-vent.
- Oh yeah. Twent. - So, in frustration, this is what he
tweet-vents: "I find it ironic that Detroit is known as the Motor City and yet no one
- here knows how to bleeping drive." - (laughs)
- Okay, I can relate! - So, that's pretty pithy here.
- I've never been to Detroit, though. - Funny guy. Really good at tweeting
- something that's memorable. - Yeah, yeah. Irony.
Here's the problem: he accidentally tweeted, not from his personal account,
but from the professional account that he was in charge of. The Chrysler official
- Twitter account. - (laughs) Oh, that's too good.
Chrysler's tweeting out that they find it ironic that Detroit is known as the motor
city and no one knows how to bleeping drive.
- (laughs) - Ooops!
- Think about, if you were following-- - The followup tweet is just
- O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-P-P-S, you know? - I mean, who's following that account, A,
- (laughs) - but you're following it and you're like,
- ooooh. - His boss is following!
Something interesting from the Chrysler account today! Oh, I wonder what they're
trying to do! What kind of strategy is this?
- Yeah. - What kind of new media strategy is this?
I find it ironic that a dude whose full-time professional job is tweeting
doesn't know how to tweet from the proper account.
Yeah, that's important. You gotta make the switch.
He was immediately fired and then Chrysler terminated the entire contract of his
- company. New Media Strategies-- fwoop! - Oh.
Just eradicated from the account entirely.
- Gah. Scott pulled the wrong string! - Bartosiewicz, man!
- Everything became unraveled. - Dude!
Okay. How about this? This one's in Australia. Okay, so you're a miner.
- You're an Australian miner. - I am not a miner, but I admire them.
Just put yourself in the boots, the mining boots of an Australian miner.
- Okay. - There's this thing going around the
internet called The Harlem Shake, where you dance a little bit, boodaboomboom,
- Do it in a group, it's awesome. - I heard of that.
What do you do? What do you do? You're a miner. What do you do?
What do you think these guys did, Link? What do you think the guys at the Agnew
- Goldmine did? - Do I have any options?
- No. The Harlem Shake. - Oh. The Harlem Shake.
- They decided to do the Harlem Shake. - (laughs)
And we're not gonna play it with the Harlem Shake music, because that's
copyrighted, but we've replaced it with some cool corporate music for you to enjoy
the Harlem Shake from these Australian miners.
- ♪ (soothing corporate music) ♪ - There he is dancing. One guy dancing.
It starts with the one guy dancing, as you can see.
- To corporate music. - Obviously in a mine.
♪ (soothing corporate music) ♪
I like this. This is a nice touch, this music.
That's a mirrorball!
- ♪ (corporate music intensifies) ♪ - Oh, and there's a buildup!
- Oh, now everybody's dancing! - There's the drop.
- Ohhh yeah! - Oh yeah.
It doesn't have quite the same impact as the original.
- Doing the worm in the mine! - Whoah! Nice!
- Oh yeah! - Look at that guy with his shirt off.
Oh, the guy with the cone, that was inappropriate. Okay, anyway.
I think we may be onto something. Like, Harlem un-shaking it with--
- Corporate music? - corporate music. We should do that.
Okay, we can look into that. Okay, so, you have multiple choice here, Link.
- Oh, now I get a choice. - What do you think happened?
A: Their boss called 'em into the office and said, (bad Australian accent) "I saw
that Harlem Shake video you guys made. I really really liked it!"
- (laughs) - (normally) Or, B: fifteen workers were
not just fired but banned for life from every Barminco mine in the world!
- Man, is there a C? 'Cause that's harsh. - A or B? A or B?
- B! B! - You're right, Link. They all lost their
jobs-- their six-figure salary jobs-- and also everyone who was watching got
fired. Just the spectators. So if you're ever going to work in an Aus--
Hold on. Did we just get fired and banned too? 'Cause we just--
Oh, gosh, we should not-- and then you all watched it. You've all been fired!
- We can't be miners anymore! - If you work in an Australian mine,
- you've been fired. - Back in April, Chad Shanks--
yes he does-- the official social media manager of the Houston Rockets and
- National Basketball Association team-- - NBA is what I call that.
He decided to tweet while the game with the Dallas Mavericks was still going on,
but it was towards the end, and they were about to beat the Mavericks, so this is
what he tweeted. He tweeted-- I guess that's an emoji? An emoji horse.
- Yeah, that is an emoji. - And then an emoji gun.
- Oh. - And then, "Shhhhh. Just close your eyes.
- It will all be over soon." - Ooh.
And he meant to do it. He wasn't tweeting from his personal account.
Yeah, he knew he was a Houston Rocket at that moment.
Ixnay on the horse murder jokes-ay. NBA no like-ay. Immediately fired.
I gotta give him credit, though, for the horse emoji. I don't think I've ever seen
- that used! - Yeah, he dug deep!
I don't think I've ever seen the horse emoji used properly, except for
- somebody who's riding one currently. - (laughs)
And I don't follow anybody who rides horses, so...
That's true. You gotta hold down that emoji button for five minutes and it'll
- finally reveal the horse emoji. - You just cycle through all farm animals
- and you get to the horse? - Right. But he also got 7600
- retweets, 5000 favorites. - Worth it, man.
But it is not classy. What he did was not classy.
- Really? - Do you know how I know this?
- ... no? - Because the Mavericks tweeted,
- "Not every classy." - Oho!
"But we still wish you guys the best of luck in the next round."
- Oh, that was a classy response. - Afterward, Mr. Shanks-- what's he
gonna do? He's gonna keep tweetin', right?
Yeah, right, yeah. From the same account?
Here's his followup tweet from his personal account after he was fired.
Oh yeah, migrated to the personal account.
"I hope there's another organization out there in need of someone willing to take
chances and create engaging social media content. I hope."
- (all laugh) - Wow, that's a desperate tweet!
He lost his ability to have confidence in getting a job halfway through the tweet.
- I hope, man. - But the great thing is, he was
- immediately hired at a glue shop! - (laughs)
- I meant to say-- (laughs) - A glue shop! (laughs)
- I had this joke prepared... - (crew laughs)
- And it was gonna be like-- - A glue shop!
- I had a glue factory-- (laughs) - You know those glue shops where they
- kill horses to make the glue. - (laughs) A glue factory joke!
- Oh, wow. - I've never been able to do a glue
- factory joke right! - Glue shop.
- The trend continues. - Is there a glue shop? I don't believe
- there is a glue shop. - (laughs) He works there, man!
- He works there. - Okay, thanks for liking and commenting.
You know what time it is.
- I'm Noah. - I'm Landon.
- And we're from Chico, California. - (both) and it's time to spin
- (both) the Wheel of Mythicality! - Let's talk about that!
You may not know, but we're doing Snapchat! Our username is realrhettlink.
- (Rhett) Realrhettlink. - (Link) No "and."
(Rhett) You can also just take a picture of that little ghost down there-- that's
our special ghost-- and you will automatically add us.
(chuckles) Is he down there, or is he everywhere?
- Special ghost! - Click through to Good Mythical More.
- Just for us. - Rhett's gonna talk about his Snapchat
- snafu recently. Oh, we won something! - (bell rings)
- (Link) Did we win something this time? - Yeah, we win the opportunity to tell you
- what you've won! - I wanna win something.
- (Link) Congratulations tylercrowley73! - (Rhett) You win a personalized
Good Mythical Morning clip!
Jorts are hard to pull off, man. The only person I can think of who can pull off
- jorts is probably, ah... - (computer voice) at tylercrowley73.
- I know. Every time I see-- - (computer voice) at tylercrowley73
- in jorts... - Right.
- I'm like, those jorts look good on - (computer voice) at tylercrowley73.
- Yep.
