Ever felt ragey feelings about your modem or your printer? Ever felt like taking those gadgets or some other piece of tech out into a field to beat the ever loving sh*t out of it? Of course you have. That’s why the marvelous and cathartic printer scene (above) from Office Space is so perfect. Taking merciless revenge on crappy devices to the sweet sounds of Geto Boys’ “Still” sounds like pure bliss. And perhaps unsurprisingly, many have attempted to recreate this scene. Many, many.
Most are pretty standard, but there are some that catch the eye, so here are five interesing takes on the classic.
These young lads finally had it with their PS3 and they beat it to smithereens in the name of fun. Pretty great re-creation, but wouldn’t it have made more sense if it was a Red Ring Of Death Xbox?

The folks at Family Guy take their spoofs seriously. Like, frame-for-frame seriously.
