[BUZZING] [MUSIC PLAYING] Yeah. I saw you. Sweet. What’s up? Gym tonight? [LAUGHTER] No!
No! No! MAN: Welcome to BRO Capital. Uh, yeah, so you’ll be
up on the fourth floor with investments, and, uh– what? The Tigers are up by 20? Yes! Anyway, it’s entry
level, but your resume was by far the strongest. I’m sure you’ll fit right– in. Thanks. I still think it’s unbelievable
that I’m really here. Unbeweavable. [CLEARING THROAT] I–
I mean, unbelievable! [GRUNTING] I’m so excited. I have a really good
feeling about this! [TAPPING] [LAUGHTER] Heh. [PHONES CHIMING] [WHISTLING] [PHONE RINGING] [SIGH] When it’s 9:00, but it
feels like it’s 10:30. Good morning. Hi there. Did you see they
hired a ball of y— oh.”. [SIGH] Morning, gentlemen. MAN: Hey, what’s the difference
between a porcupine and a BMW? With the porcupine, the
pricks are on the outside! [LAUGHTER] PURL: [LAUGHTER] Yeah! [LAUGHTER] Good one. So, why do spiders weave webs? Because they don’t
know how to crochet. [LAUGHTER] Is that, like, a
sport, or something? Like– with the needles, and– you know? [NERVOUS LAUGHTER] Aw. MAN: Hey, guys. Staff meeting. As you can see, we’ve got a
big, fat failure on our hands. So, finance wants answers. Ideas? Uh, excuse me. OK. What’s our strategy here? What’s the priority? Why are they even ours? Simple and straightforward. Oh, guys! Let’s bring finance in and
knit our strategies together. What? Naw, you’re being too soft. We gotta be aggressive.
– Yeah! We gotta be aggressive!
– Double down! Aggressive! Who cares about finance? [MEN SHOUTING] All right, all right, OK. Let’s put a pin in it. Who’s down for two for
one wings at Swifty’s? Oh, yeah. Hey, we got everybody? Yeah, that’s everybody. All right. First round’s on Gronkowski. [LAUGHTER] [SIGH] [DING] Of course, now
who knows what– What the– Gronkowski. Purl. [TYPING] Did she always sit there? I don’t even recognize her. So then he says, I know
this suit is expensive, baby. But at my apartment,
it’s 100% off! [LAUGHTER] She tells better
jokes than you do. MAN: Hey, guys? Staff meeting. [LAUGHTER] MAN: Well, these results
speak for themselves. But finance is
still asking for– I say we go for it! And if finance doesn’t like
it, they can kiss our ass! All right! Yeah! All right! [CHEERING] It’s 5:00 somewhere. Let’s go. Happy hour at Swifty’s. Let’s get outta here. Shotgun!
Shotgun! All right. Is that everybody? Hold up. Not everybody. Let’s go. – Shotgun!
– Come on. You’re gonna love
this place, Purl. Purl, you’re going
to eat so many wings. Purl! Purl, you wanna– – Purl, come over here.
– Hey, Purl? Purl? [CHEERING] [VOMITING] [CHEERING] [DING] Oh, thank goodness
you’re still here. I had such a time trying
to find this place. Oh, I missed my stop,
and then I didn’t know what floor we were on. Excuse me, sir. I guess Kyle from
HR went home early, so I went door to
door, up each flight. [SCOFFING] Leave the
knitting at your nana’s house. [LAUGHTER] What I mean to
say is that I can’t wait to be part of the team. Guys? [SIGH] Hey, where are you going? Hi. I’m Purl. I’m Lacy. What are they doing? LACY: It was such a fright. Hey, guys, this is Lacy. Mm– eh. PURL: Welcome to BRO Capital. You’ll be up on the fourth
floor with investments. Thanks. It’s still kind of
unbelievable that I’m here. I would say it’s
“un-be-weave-able.” [LAUGHTER] [LAUGHTER] Wow. I have a really good
feeling about this. Well, come on. Let me show you around. Tell us all about yourself. We do love a good yarn. Hey, Purl, you guys coming
to Schwifty’s tonight? Is a wool sweater scratchy? [LAUGHTER] [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. I'm in an elementary school camp, and one of our camp directors played this video to a bunch of 8 year olds

  2. Your attempts at social engineering are being met with some degree of hostility. We don't need outsiders intruding and interfering with the pretty sweet system we have set up for ourselves. Go play with your balls in your own arena and leave ours alone.

    DIversity and inclusion lead to collapse.

  3. Now that is called a happy ending!! A happy ending to the order of the world which is free of gender bias and is equally enjoyed by both the sexes!

  4. #A+review
    this is a good story of the basic problem faced by the people to get merged with their enviornment here, it shows us what is necessery in such a condition ,it is be yourself that to be like someone other's interest
    rating 6.5/10

  5. My four-year-old saw this and asked to watch it. Since it was a Pixar animated short I didn't worry about it. Guess Pixar isn't child-friendly anymore. If they're going to do adult content, they should at least put a warning.

  6. Очень жизненный мультик если заменить клубок любым человеком

  7. This short is pretty wholesome, even with the adult moments. It shows that you don't have to be in suit to fit in. Even if your looked at wrong.

  8. Women are the heartbeat of humanity and should be honored in the workplace not marginalized. They also think with both sides of the brain (combining analytical and intuitive thinking), making them far more capable of wholly evaluating problems and solving them. #TimeisUp

  9. I don’t get why people aren’t talking about how smart Pixar conveyed the message about women in this animation. :/

  10. Ces pas parceque ces une pelote de laine qu'elle devait forcément se faire rejeter ou partir elle a décider de changer et je suis contente qui toi ai pour le mieux je suis content

  11. Et heuresement elle a était chercher la deuxième pelote pour ne pas qu'elle soit toute seule puis elle se remet a son physique d'avant et plein de pelote se mettent à travailler même si ses des pelotes de laines

  12. I think a lot of people are sort of missing the point behind this short and just saying it's a stereotypical feminist story, but I think it means more than just: mEn ArE bAd CuS tHeY eXcLuDe WoMeN

    This is a representation of how fitting in and the pressure to change yourself to be more popular doesn't end with school. It's supposed to be a metaphor for how people change themselves to try and find success, and weirdness and unique perspectives and personalities are shunned. Purl and the other yarn balls aren't just supposed to represent women, they are supposed to represent any kind of person you see outside of the usual "healthy" clean cut straight white guy that loves sports bars. You can even see at the end when the work place becomes more open and accepting that some of the guys were wearing Color full shirts in stead, feeling more like they could be themselves as well. This is a short about accepting that people are super different, but that doesn't mean they cant get along, and that everyone should be included. I know that's still kinda cliche, but I think it's a nice way of portraying the message.

  13. For a movie that has the concept of it being about sexism against women in a office they sure do some male stereotype
    1-Obsessed with sports
    2-aggressive with there work
    3-barley do any work

  14. 4:12 male restroom

    4:35 “does SHE always sits there?”

    Me: w8 so she went into the restroom of males? Wait thats illegal

  15. Good short film though not without issues and to me the biggest one is that they could have tried a different approach to address an important message such as "just be yourself". Let's be honest, we have come to expect a big studio to go the SJW way and do what everybody else is doing: Demonizing the so-called patriarchy because they simply wouldn't have the guts to portray a female-dominated workplace (of which there are many by the way) and introduce a male character who tries to fit in. Then again, they wouldn't be able to find anything wrong with a female-dominated workplace to start with. Most likely, they wouldn't dare to do it. So much for real equality.

  16. I like how Purl looks like stop-motion animation (with a slightly lower frame rate) while the humans are animated so smoothly. 1:43 is a great example.
