The BrandLab is a non-profit organization that aims to change the face and voice of the marketing industry by introducing, guiding and preparing students for careers in marketing and advertising.
Help us in supporting this incredible cause by purchasing a raffle ticket for a 1 in 300 chance to win two tickets to football’s grandest stage, the Big Game 52 in Minneapolis, MN! Winner will be drawn and announced on Shenangians Day – December 15, 2017.
Sure there’s Labor Day, but that’s devolved into a three day weekend filled with chores. What’s needed is a day dedicated to celebrating and rewarding the hard work of employees.
On December 15th, we will be celebrating Shenanigans Day. A work day filled with—you guessed it—shenanigans. If you’re a business that doesn’t take itself too seriously, you’ll be celebrating it, too.
Shave a mohawk into your coworkers head, have a lip sync competition, race around the office on hoverboards, fight gladiator-style in an inflatable ring, drink suspicious homemade moonshine, play flip cup, get a photo booth, hop on a party bus… the possibilities are endless.
Get together with your coworkers and dream up the funnest day at work you’ve ever imagined. Then do it.
Well, you see, how could we possibly celebrate Shenanigans Day, a holiday specifically dedicated to celebrating employees, without sharing the shenanigans with our hardworking clients and friends?
We thought long and hard about how to get as many clients and friends partaking in Shenanigans Day as possible. We couldn’t possibly convince all of them to come to Minneapolis in Winter, so how could we bring Shenanigans Day to them? Then it smacked us right across the face.
Rather than sending holiday food baskets, candles, swag items, and other slightly boring things… no offense. What if instead, we sent a Shenanigans Day box?? The Shenanibox. And the rest is history.
A team of analysts coordinate for the months leading up to Shenanigans Day to plan conceptual theme, box design, what gifts should be included, shenanigan activities, internal and external marketing, and delivery of the final package.
Shenanigans are a major part of a typical Ovative employee’s day-to-day life. Whether it is shuffleboard, ping pong, or darts – these stress relievers are essential to our daily motivation to succeed. (Hard hitting facts on the matter.) So, for our 2015 Shenanibox, we spread the ability to have daily shenanigans to our hard-working employees with a box full of games they could use throughout the year.
Our clients participated in our Shenanigans as superheroes saving the day from the evil Nale Ditchke. Their timed endeavor promoted friendly competition and team bonding as they solved various riddles, puzzles and more to open the treasure chest and save Shenanigans Day!
