Why Luis Suarez is an office douchebag

Gathering 50 top regional chief HR and senior business leaders at a three-day business retreat forum, the exclusive HR Innovation Leaders' Summit will happen from September 9-11. Get involved.

Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez may have made football headlines after biting other players and going all out with the dramatics for a game advantage.

But what happens when the Liverpool striker trades in his boots for a shirt and tie?

In an ad for Uruguayan financial firm Abitab, Suarez plays a satirical version of himself – working in an office where he constantly interrupts a co-worker and gets angry at everything from an empty coffee pot to a malfunctioning printer.

Office Suarez even collapses on the ground when a colleague taps him from behind to give him more work.

The one minute ad, filmed mockumentary-style, also featured commentary from his colleagues, who admitted he can be “a bit difficult to work with” and describe him as “competitive”.
