Post-It War Between Two Office Buildings Ends With Epic Finale

Post-it notes. The world would be in chaos without them. Nobody would remember anything. Nobody would be able to turn their office walls into superhero murals. Nobody would be able to leave passive-aggressive messages on the doors of communal refrigerators. And nobody would be able to have the sort of epic Post-it note battle that recently took place in New York.

It all started innocently enough. An employee at Harrison and Star wrote a simple “hi” in Post-it notes on her window and waited for somebody to respond. And somebody did. They wrote “sup”. So far, so civil. But it didn’t stop there. Oh no. It was only just getting started! Both buildings host a number of marketing and media agencies and their creative inhabitants couldn’t resist getting involved in the action. Soon enough the windows were full of funny messages and pictures. But as you’ll discover below, it all came to a devastating end in the most unexpected of ways…(h/t: twisted sifter)

Everything started with an innocent “HI” on the 6th floor at 75 Varick Street in NYC

Soon, “Sup” appeared on a building from across the street at 200 Hudson

As both buildings had a lot of media and marketing agencies, it eventually turned into WAR

The windows started filling up with funny pictures and messages

Post-it manufacturer 3M also joined the war by providing free ammunition (i.e Post-it notes!)

As the war got more creative, it seemed that nobody would win

With no other option, Havas Worldwide brought the war to an end with this epic mic drop


Workers stayed late with beer and pizza to create the spectacular finale, and fellas from Spectacle Studio later posted this video

Unfortunately, the battle was ended by building managers who ordered all participants to have everything taken down by the weekend.
