The stories you're about to watch are inspired by real events. However, since the intent of the videos is to portray these real life situations with humor, the way situations, reactions and conducts are portrayed by the comedian has been willingly overemphasized.
International travel is a minefield of unexpected frustrations: missed connections, never-ending queues, exhausting delays, inedible airplane food — the list goes on and on. When 300 Pernod Ricard employees set off from South Africa to Northern Europe for their annual conference, it was going to be a stressful trip. Does the group have the true spirit of camaraderie and the flexibility it takes to make it to Dublin as one united team?
At 7PM, Ronnie started to notice that the waters were rising steadily on the Spey River. Outside the Miltonduff Distillery in Speyside, the evening’s Scottish mist had transformed itself into a downpour that could cause the river to swiftly overflow its banks and engulf the distillery. Armed with only sandbags and water pumps — and the wits he’d honed over his 39 years at Miltonduff — does Ronnie have what it takes to save the distillery?
It was a plan so bold it just had to become a reality. Once the idea had floated out over the conference table, there was no turning back: Absolut was going to throw 100 simultaneous parties across China to ring in the New Year. The only question left was, “How?”
There was no way around it: the situation was dire. The truck with all the supplies for the Pernod Ricard annual retreat had been hijacked by armed men while making its way down to the venue just days before the event was supposed to begin! With 1,000 employees already on the way, will the team have what it takes to save the day?
Which hero are you ?

SMELLS LIKE TEAM SPIRIT, YOU ARE A TEAM PLAYER LIKE CHARL BASSIL
You have that special pizzazz, a certain je ne sais quoi that lights up a room and brings everyone together. An unyielding belief that things are better when accomplished as a team. Bravo, Captain!
YOU’VE GOT A BIT OF HIGHLANDER IN YOU, DON’T YOU? YOU ARE COURAGEOUS LIKE RONNIE MILNE
Come hell or high water, you shall overcome anything thrown at you. As William Faulkner once opined, you can’t swim for new horizons until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. To you, conquering the unknown is just the way of life. So, go forth! The leap untaken awaits.
ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY, YOU ARE DEDICATED LIKE LINDSAY QUEUGNET
No one ever accused you of slacking off. In the face of difficulty, you’ve never even thought the word surrender, let alone raised the white flag. You work harder than everyone else, and that’s just the way it’s always been. Don’t stop now — it’s working!
