I know we’ve had a lot of fans checking out our Beyond the Build series and commenting about the pranks that go on in the office. A few skeptical viewers seem to think that some of the antics were “staged” or just for the cameras, but having spent a couple of weeks at our San Diego headquarters during my tenure with the company, I can 100% verify that there is literally a constant threat of being pranked if you’re on the property.
One of the most common, and funniest pranks you’ll find yourself witnessing around the office is the nitrous blast. There are few things in the world that will make you jump out of your skin like a frigid blast of chilled nitrous oxide. All it takes is a moment of distraction, or God forbid you fall asleep or focus on your work, and you’re immediately on the radar for the prank patrol. Besides the unnerving feeling of being smacked with the icy cold blast, the noise made by the spray exiting the hose is intense, filling the whole office with a hiss that is indescribable until you’ve experienced it first-hand.
Of course, there is always the option of blasting somebody with a fire extinguisher, although as you can see by our in-house wrench-slinger Mike’s reaction to being sprayed in the face with one, that one can cause some serious issues so if you’re gonna pull this one, aim for the body or legs and not the face. Safety guy Matt thanks you for your caution!
Of course, that’s only a couple of the countless ways these guys cut up in the office on the daily, which is one of the reasons Speed Society is a great place to work. Not only do we spend many a weekend at the coolest events in the automotive world, but even the workdays int the office are exciting, even it the excitement does come from a nitrous bottle or from an unexpected train horn!
