When I thought I’d seen it all in the agitation stakes, then it happened… The in-house model casting that reduced an entire office to a shrieking mess.
Swide’s Next Top (Hand) Model
Our job now and then requires us to get creative and put more of ourselves into things than our sole job description would seem to indicate. And so a few days ago, for highly important editorial purposes, it came up that we needed a hand (an actual hand rather than just a little help), and we set out to look for the perfect one. That is how our search for Swide’s Next Top (Hand) Model began.
And so made our annoucement: Swide is looking to recruit a top hand to feature in prime position on our front page; only premium hands will be taken into account. I was expecting a few laughs at most at the sound of this rather unusual request but I really wasn’t ready for all hell to break loose the way it did. A scene out of Chicken Run as my colleagues tried to establish the pecking order in the hand attractiveness department. A natural selection operated as a few were hand-shamed, and so a few hopefuls set out to run for the crown.
Here are a few of the hands we came across:
The tense one – Victory clearly meant a lot to this one candidate who clearly put a lot of passion into it; one can clearly sense the tension in that highly ambitious wrist.
The aristrocratic one – This one is clearly used to holding bone china teacups (the kind that comes with cucumber sandwiches), and while it might be uber-elegant one might also worry about relatability.
The try-harder-next-time one – A complete bore; that one candidate clearly did not have their eyes on the prize.
The commercial one - Aka the perfect one and likely winner, something out of an actual Apple ad; Swide couldn’t have been more delighted.
Still unsure as to who the winner might be? Curious to see the results? Over HERE!
