VIDEO: The creative ransom

In case you've been out of the unemployment pit for a while, you might have forgotten how soul-destroyingly hard it is to get a job. Especially when you're aiming to actually enjoy your working week.

Taking the bull by the horns, two inventive Aussies who call themselves Grinter Spencer decided to blackmail their way into meetings with some of Melbourne's top creative directors.

How did they do this? Well they purchased the URLs of their names and held the pages hostage. We really can't tell you what happened next. There's a video for that.

Jobseekers, you might want to take notes.
