"But wait a minute! This doesn't say anything about getting naked with your co-workers!" you might observe.
Well, no, but a description of a British show called The Naked Office, from Reveille parent company Shine Limited, sure does: "The Naked Office is the bold, radical and headline-grabbing experiment that will make a positive change across the nation by getting people to come to work wearing nothing but a smile. ... The ultimate aim is to strip away the badges of status, for the staff to accept each other without judgment and therefore become a better, happier workforce. The show takes place over one week, building up to Naked Friday when each member of staff is invited to turn up to work naked. No shame, and nowhere to hide."
Many of America's most popular reality shows, including Undercover Boss, began as European hits.
Rest assured that there will be computer monitors, briefcases, desks and cubicle walls discreetly placed. And what props can't hide, you can bet skillful pixilation will erase. Still, you can't help but wonder, is this one British import too many? Are there actually American workers out there willing to strip down in order to build their company up?
