Labor Day Weekend is over; that means back to school and (ugh) work. Make the end of summer a little less awful with the hilarious parody 'Workington Career Centers.'
Remember those 90s school tutoring commercials where flunking kids argued with exasperated moms? Here's an update for all us working stiffs. An angry wife (Katina Corrao) has had it with her childish husband (Anthony DeVito) who clearly does not exceed expectations. Luckily, help is available in the form of Workington Career Centers, who promise to “turn pathetic deadwood into valued employees… no matter how useless they are.”
This VSFW (Very Safe For Work) video was created and written by actor/comedian Anthony DeVito (House of Cards, Funny Or Die, Above Average), who stars as the failing hubby with actress/comedian Katina Corrao (Broad City, Lasers In The Jungle) as his long-suffering spouse. Actor Anthony Marino of brooklynONE Productions is the ultra-cheerful Workington rep.
“Those old commercials always make me laugh,” said Anthony DeVito. “The harsh, aggressive tone with everyone snapping at each other and lots of angry close-ups. I thought it’d be funny to create a company that helps adults who suck at work, which often treats us like we're children. It was really fun to shoot, although we had to stop a lot because we kept cracking up.”
