If we didn’t laugh we’d cry.
At least they still have their sense of humor. And they would very much like to remind us of that. Seriously, please, can’t everyone just focus on how fun they are? Either way, the fake job posting for a new CEO is both pretty funny and a little bit sad, mostly because, after the pantstastrophe earlier this year, and the resignation of their CEO last week, a company spokeswoman had to remind the public how Lululemon has “always been a fun and irreverent brand” and is “not afraid to spark a conversation in our communities.”
And it may have been a joke, but people could actually apply online and according to CNN the listing received about 160 applicants who apparently speak fluent Sanskrit and have “genius” “visionary” Chip Wilson, Bill Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey on speed dial, not to mention are comfortable balancing their work/life with wheatgrass/tequila.
We think it’s only fair then, that they read each and every one of the applications and take them seriously considering most of these poor souls never had a chance and were only part of a joke. No, even better, if they really want to do some fun public relations, how about we get to vote on who wins caption Lululemon! Hey, we had a few suggestions when Chip stepped down last year after the avalanche of controversies. Maybe Stephen Colbert finally applied!
The job is no longer posted, but here is the full listing in case you want to feel crushed about missing out on your dream job of bringing yoga to Mars by 2018. Dammit, Marvin.
