Today is 2/2/22, and you know what that means? Nothing, it means nothing at all. I looked outside at 2:22 on 2/22/22 and the world was unchanged. I check the news, and it turns out Slack is down, Russian’s may be invading Ukraine, and Facebook is trying to clone TikTok. So nothing new.
People are still working like normal. This beautiful moment is passing everyone by; Even marketers seem to have missed the chance. I’ve seen no ads commiserating the event. Now I’ll have to wait 200 more years to see an ad for Taco 22222 Tuesday. Very sad.
If I still worked in an office, I’d have at least gotten the chance to have a post work happy hour with my coworkers. Maybe I’ll see if anyone is down to “demonstrate the advantage of inclusion and diversity, and help reinforce a positive corporate culture” or whatever companies are saying to describe games over Zoom while they are not marketing the moment of alignment. Eye roll.
