Working retail can get dull, even when you sell video games. Luckily for one GameStop employee, his boredom led to creativity and it got the better of him. Luckily he’s so damn talented that even his boss approves!
Redditor ShortYetAwesome has been turning the floor of his GameStop into a canvas for duct tape game logos and they are seriously well done if I do say so myself.
Besides Borderlands 2, he’s also taped out the logos for Black Ops II, Assassin’s Creed 3 and more.
There’s no big secret to his artistic madness, just good old fashioned duct tape, pencils and an exacto knife.
I’m the OP’s boss, and he came to me with this idea back in May. He saw something on reddit for a Ghost Recon design, and it went from there. He’s done five total throughout my store, and we (so far) have one more planned. And as far as I know, he enjoys doing these (please, correct me if I’m wrong!)
So let this be a lesson to you. Creativity is often rewarded with both real life and imaginary karma. Especially if your boss browses reddit.
