Former Sixers CEO Adam Aron eschews pants, boldly protests corporate culture
In a Zoom meeting this week, Former Sixers CEO and consummate man of the people Adam Aron made a bold statement against blatantly corporatist and oppressive policies by refusing to wear pants.
Of course, many media outlets have reported this as a mere accident, the blunder of an elderly man in the hot summer months. However, I see this for what it truly is: a powerful but brief act of protest.
The video does appear like a simple mistake, but you have to know the man behind the action to find its deeper meaning.
Adam Aron is the current CEO of the movie theatre company AMC, one of the meme stocks that made many proletariats rich at the expense of Wall Street fat cats.
Now, I did not listen to the full interview, or any of it, for that matter, but I am sure they talked about that. What else would anyone interview the CEO of AMC about?
He must be thrilled about something that made him money made a lot of other people money. I assume it is made sweeter by the failure of those that doubted him.
As a man of the people, Adam Aron had to take advantage of the larger platform. And take advantage of it he did – as in those brief moments the world saw his old man thighs, they also saw hope. Hope for a virtual workplace that does not require pants.
I know I’d be fully on board right now. If you think I’m wearing pants as I write this, you’ve got to be out of your mind. If it’s above 70 degrees outside, pants at your desk should be optional.
And, reader, I know you feel the same way. Adam Aron spoke for us, the silent majority. He fired the first shot in the war against pants, and it is up to us to follow.
The best part about all of this? It’s way easier not to wear pants just to wear them.
I know I’ll be chilling in my all-hands meeting today, rocking my boxers, and loving life while I feel the breeze because I’m not important enough to be spoken to.
