In a game of whack-a-mole, the main player should whack whatever sticks out from the playing holes. May it be a mole, a cat, a dog, something that deducts scores, or even your co-workers wearing hard hats, you have to hit them as hard as you can.
This group of construction workers from an unidentified construction firm was having fun by playing a life-size human version of whack-a-mole. Instead of moles, they decided to take advantage of their sturdy helmets. And the wooden mallet used for whacking? They replaced it with a rubber one.
On the video, these workers had their time of their lives as 2 of them randomly popped out from what it looked like an empty pipe passage. At first, the 2 “moles” let their whacker whack them easily by popping their heads out in a pattern. But after some time, they decided to keep things going by raising their protected heads in a random manner.
So this is how construction workers spend their free time, huh?
We don’t usually see skilled workers like them enjoy their breaks because of their job’s nature. Commonly, these people would just rest for a bit and reserve their energy so that they can perform more on the following tasks. However, these creative workers found time in recreating a popular game on arcades.
It’s no easy being a construction worker. You really need to work your asses that hard to earn much and finish your tasks on time. So if we look at it this way, it’s definitely normal for them to find other ways of distressing themselves. And one possible way to do this is to play whack-a-mole with your workmates. For sure that will be fun not just to the whackers part, but also for the mole’s part as well.
Now, if only they could do a construction version of Donkey Kong or something…
