This is why working on national holidays is a bad idea: today we’ve learned that the New York office of McCann Worldgroup is closed due to a fire in the building where their offices are located. The inferno was not on a McCann floor, but the agency has been closed for the day.
We’re told by agency representatives that everyone was evacuated safely, but is water damage on the fourth and fifth floors. A tipster said the fire occurred early in the morning, around 3 am, and that the building smells of smoke.
Who’s to blame? Our best guess is the ghost of a fiery Italian (pictured). Get it? Cuz…Italians are hot blooded, hot tempered, and pissed that they have to work on Columbus Day. This is New York!
