Dr Mumbo

Inside the world of the Fairfax Employment Network

Dr Mumbo was intrigued to see the guys on Fairfax’s advertising team fronting up for a new ad campaign to spruik its Employment Network.

However the tongue-in-cheek Youtube clip, which sees the Fairfax rep speak to camera as he walks around the building but, does raise some important questions:

  • Like since when does management allow the use of segways in the building, especially while drinking coffee? That looks like a serious health and safety issue.


  • and why are news journalists, RSVP, finance and entertainment all hanging out in the same corridor? Haven’t they got work to do?Corridor
  • why are the presenter’s colleagues trying to hide from him around the office?Employee_hides
  • and that moment where we’re randomly introduced to Mr Mittens (aww…)

  • and when everyone at Fairfax comes together in the sparsely populated office at the end why are only two of the screens on the whole floor on?Fairfax_hold_hands
