i’ll burn the building down

If you’ve seen office space you’ll appreciate that you can now buy red swingline staplers like this one. But why is it such a big deal that you can get a red Swingline stapler?

Because Swingline didn’t make red staplers until this past April. The prop guy took a black stapler and painted it red for the movie. You can find obvious office space references on Swingline’s product page. “Up the Revolution: The Red Stapler! Staple and be heard! WHAM-cubicles! WHAM-dress code! WHAMWHAMWHAM!”
