As some of you may know, Wall Street has been experiencing some turbulence of late.
We know because we’ve been seeing lots of images of depressed dudes on trading floors clasping their heads. In fact, there is a whole blog devoted to these shots, complete with sardonic captions, at Sad Guys on Trading Floors.
What we hadn’t seen yet was this slow-motion carnage set to the exquisitely melancholy music of Nick Lowe. So we ripped off a bunch of shots from Sad Guys and made us a montage, and you can see it here.
