  • 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.
