Hewlett-Packard techies looking for a new gig based on the so-called email that made its way around the Internets banning T-shirts, shorts, jorts, mandals or basically anything else considered non-office wear may want to take a look at this Betabrand recruitment video.
The San Francisco-based crowdsourced clothing company, which has brought you such hits as that Silicon Valley fashion show with drones, is here to show you that you can wear whatever the hell you want — as long as you are smart and have a sense of humor.
If you’ve ever wanted to see a team of engineers sporting cropped tees with lines like “Meet the ultimate hard drive,” then today’s your lucky day.
Betabrand made the video in response to the HP request that its tech staff start to class it up a little at work.
No worry of that at Betabrand though: “Betabrand is a casual, creative work environment, one that has no dress code. And never will,” says CTO Colin Stuart in the video, while sporting pasties.
Betabrand also sent a list of acceptable office wear via an email release. It includes fluorescent tank tops, mesh jerseys, “Flashdance” sweatshirts, muscle shirts, chicken suits and body paint. Only certain clown outfits are allowed, however. They have to draw a line somewhere.
Get that video application ready — with your worst outfit. Something tells me that you’ll probably land an interview.
