Nobody told me it was bring your superhero to work day.
A Chinese telecom worker, having decided casual Fridays were just way too f***ing casual, decided to show up for work last week in his homemade Iron Man Mk 1 costume, scaring the tech-supporting shit out of his coworkers, who probably assumed he was the lovechild of the Tin Man and a Terminator coming back to seek revenge for poor cell phone reception or something. That, or that he was a walking time-bomb.
'No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach,' he said.
'Some were even screaming for being scared.'
He began building the costume at the end of February and it took him around three months to complete, at a cost of around $450.
But Wang said the effort had been well worth it - with his costume drawing praise from his bosses and compliments from women.
He claimed some had even 'fallen in love' with him because of it.
'They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me,' he said.
Oh sure, this guy wears a homemade Iron Man suit to work and gets praised by his bosses and worshipped by women and I wear my Superman pajama set and get "sent home early" and "asked why there's skid marks on the ass." THEY'RE FROM A BOTCHED LANDING, GOD.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots and a video that really could have used a tripod/not a spaz filming.
Thanks to Derek, who got doesn't wear costumes to work because he's a professional. Professional, or nudie dancer?
