***Fast Company Interview***
“My idea was to have people come to the store wearing our T-shirts, gather in front for the camera and yell out in unison, ‘I love Sarasota Guitar Company!’ The only requirement for participating in the video and the $1,000 gift card drawing was that you show up at our Sarasota location wearing a Sarasota Guitar Company T-shirt on April 1,” Cook explains. “So basically one lucky person was going to turn a T-shirt into $1,000.” To help promote the event and the four-figure giveaway, Cook elicited the services of the Lazy Fairy Improv Troupe. The troupe shot a promotional video at Sarasota Guitar Company’s Sarasota store in February, and that video has already received more than 20,000 hits. Read more on The Bradenton Herald here.

Any time you walk through the halls of an elementary school or frequent a playground all you hear are giggles and laughter, but when you walk the maze of cubicles at work or along the hallways in your office, you rarely hear those same sounds of glee. It's not that we have outgrown laughter as we have entered adulthood, but work is generally viewed as a place to be serious so that lots of work can get done. Now research tells us that a little humor and laughter at work can go a long way.
Often referred to as the "best medicine," laughter at work is gaining ground as an easy way to brighten the workday and boost the overall health of your workplace or organization. Because there is a growing amount of research that supports the benefits of laughter at work, humor is now getting the professional respect it deserves.
David Sloan Wilson, an evolutionary biologist at Bingham University, discusses laughter at work in his new book, 'Evolution For Everyone.' Wilson finds laughter to be a good thing for any workplace. "When it is appropriate, laughter puts everyone in a merry mood. Mechanistically, the brain releases a cocktail of chemicals similar to those that we take artificially to give ourselves a good time such as opium or morphine. So besides feeling good, we also act good."
Laughing at workLeigh Anne Jasheway, M.P.H. and comedian, says that you don't want to encourage pranks or have everyone at work turn into the court jester, but recommends these methods for using laughter at work:
Work should not feel like punishment -- we've been saying that for years -- and now there is scientific research that proves it. A little laughter at work is just what people need in this time of change and financial fluctuation. If laughter is also proven to make us happier, more effective workers, then bring on the whoopee cushion!
