Sticky Notes War Between Two Office Buildings That Got Out Of Hand

Posted on Fun 27

Post-it notes are an awesome way to leave someone a cute message they’ll find in the morning or be passive-aggressive at work when James leaves a mess after himself in the kitchen… come on James! But a couple of office buildings in New York stepped it up a notch when they started a full-blown sticky notes war between themselves.

It all started when an employee at Harrison and Star wrote “hi” on his office window, hoping to catch the attention of a neighboring office across the street. He did. And they replied with “sup”. This was just a humble beginning to what happened next. Both office buildings house a number of marketing and media agencies with employees not afraid to share their creativity.

Take a look at the shots from their battle, which culminated in an epic finale.

Everything started with an innocent “HI” on the 6th floor at 75 Varick Street in NYC

Soon, “Sup” appeared on a building from across the street at 200 Hudson

As both buildings had a lot of media and marketing agencies, it eventually turned into WAR

As the war got more creative, it seemed that nobody would win
