It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone slacks off at work. Some of us — myself included — get paid to meander around the web and strike gold. Employees of the self-proclaimed Office Depot of Europe, Viking, had a dedicated crew of Star Wars fans spend a week creating a visually stunning rendering of a stormtrooper on a conference table made of completely with push-pins.

The whole process took 39 hours and 28,800 pins, to be exact. Don’t worry; they got some work done. “Employees could work on the project if they needed a quick break from their work, or if they wanted to help on their lunch break,” Viking confessed. After the last pin was pushed, the Vikings placed a glass table top over the trooper to prevent any office droids from messing anything up.

May the Fourth is right around the corner, so this might be something you and your Rebel scum pals can tackle to celebrate your love of everything Star Wars. Do you think you can beat their time? Push-pin your comment below.
