Anyone who’s worked in an office has no doubt experienced the peril of a coworker, just back from an amazing vacation, who can’t seem to stop talking about it. We’re sure you’ve had to listen to Madge from accounting drone on and on about how much better the food is in Italy, or Horatio from personnel wag his chin about how efficient public transportation is in Luxembourg, or Oswald from the front desk describe in painstaking detail how there’s no more beautiful sight than a moonlit Sheboygan. But trust us, you’ve never endured something quite so treacherous as a coworker who’s just arrived home from a trip to Wakanda.
[brightcove video_id=”5794999926001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=“rJs2ZD8x”]Our latest Nerdist Presents treats the staff here at Nerdist to just that: a coworker who has made it her business to make everyone aware just how much cooler Black Panther’s home nation of Wakanda is than our fair Burbank… or pretty much anywhere else, for that matter. And sure, we concede—Wakanda’s got some of the most amazing technology, culture, and battle rhinos of any place on Earth. But do we have to hear you blather on about it, Aliza? It’s no easy feat for most of us to make it over to Wakanda, and at some point you’re really just rubbing salt on the wound.
All that said, we can’t imagine any one of us would be much humbler if we got to hang out with T’Challa and snag our own personal space-rides, so who can blame her?
