Zappos' Sneaky Snowman Strikes Again

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Zappos employees were mumbling this famous line after recent events at company headquarters.

It all began in 2015 when a life-size snowman was placed near the office’s sky bridge exit. For about a week the snowman looked like a mere decoration with a bowl of candy for passersby to enjoy on the way out.

However, a week into the decoration, an employee put themselves in the snowman and startled people who walked past. All was recorded for the company to view at our quarterly All Hands meeting.

Fast-forward to 2016 and Zappos employees were greeted once again by a suspicious Jack Frost. The Zappos pranksters thought they could scare us, but we are sharper than that! We knew what was happening … or so we thought.
