Fox Sports Asks The Hard ?s: Gay Porn or WNBA?

A couple years ago, after leaving a particularly crappy soul-sucking office job, I made a solemn vow to myself that I would never work in a typical office or cubicle again. No more staring at the portable, thumbtackable walls of a cubicle. No more endless, pointless meetings about nothing at all. I spent the majority of my 20s sitting under the harsh glare of flourescent lighting and decided that I was not going to waste my life as a Dockers-and-polo-shirt-clad cog in someone else’s corporate machine.

Fox Sports Cubed

Then again, maybe if I’d been working at FOXSPORTS.COM, I’d be singing a different tune. They debuted a new comedy-reality-web-show-thingy this week, a sort of “The Office meets talk radio meets entry-level marketing position” series, that makes the office life look, well, pretty damn fun after all.

The series is called “Cubed,” and if you leave the volume up too loud, it’ll get your ass fired. The premise of the short webisodes is that young 20-somethings talk about a lot of weird crap during office downtime, so why not just film it for people to see? I have no clue how scripted it is, or if it’s scripted, but considering the stars don’t seem to get a damn bit of work done, ever, I’d have to say it’s hardly reality TV.

(Unfortunately, Fox Sports’ embedding function doesn’t seem to be working at the moment, so you can take a look at the video here.)

I hadn’t previously been aware the Fox Sports was branching out into the entertainment world, but I have to admit the clips are pretty damn entertaining, in a “I don’t feel like working right now, so what’s on the Internet?” sort of way. It takes a bit of balls for someone to greenlight a segment called “Gay Porn vs. the WNBA” on a major media outlet’s website. Also, it’s got hot chicks. Consider us hooked.
