The best of four new spots for EDS, aiming to illustrate IT shortcomings, features two men running wildly around New York, offering just about everyone - a taxi driver, garbage men, a woman trying on a wedding dress, a man in a chicken suit - $100 for 15 minutes of work. An offer too good to refuse, they pile into an office elevator just paces in front of a stern-looking exec who wants to know whether the IT department is fully staffed. He is assured that it is, then opens the door on a hilarious scene: a crazy old man handling the phones, a wild-eyed homeless man pilfering from the supply cabinet and a life-sized chicken running the copy machine.
