Few movies have been burned into the brains of today’s corporate work force as well as Office Space – the 1999 Mike Judge film that tells the story of corporate work life. The film, which helped lay the foundation for Judge’s more recent Silicon Valley show that follows a similar premise, has many memorable scenes – although few may be as memorable as the infamous “Printer Scene”.

Set to a soundtrack of “Still” from the Geto Boys, the scene holds nothing back when it comes to the frustrations of dealing with crappy technology – such as mid-1990s printers. But while old off-white HP printers are one thing, what would a similar technology-destroying experience look like today?
