Workopolis Print Ad Pokes Fun at Toronto Mayor’s Extreme Close-Up

Workopolis - Painful Career Moves

For those of us living in the Toronto-area, Mayor Rob Ford is a constant source of inspiration, entertainment or horror, depending on your point of view. But thanks to the internet, folks around the world can share in his latest pratfalls.

The latest incident unfolded last Monday when Ford accidentally walked directly into a news camera. Thankfully the mayor was uninjured, but the clip of the incident quickly racked up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, ending up being featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

This morning an ad for Canadian job site Workopolis featured a cartoon of that “face-meets-camera” encounter next to the headline, “Painful career moves are sometimes hard to avoid.”
