Danish concept developer and designer Cathrine Understrup knew that to get an internship at her dream workplace she had to be incredibly creative. The average wait for such a position is two years, but she was determined to bypass that line. Cathrine Understrup decided to challenge Stockholm-based creative agency Snask to a ping pong match to win the highly coveted position.

Yet she didn't just challenge them, she designed a whole ping pong kit complete with the singer George Michael's face on one side of the paddle. In response, Snask shared on Instagram an image with the caption, "Just got this in a golden package. It's our future intern, Catrine, challenging us in ping pong by sending us a GM-racket. Will his face make the racket better? We think so. I mean, Jesus would have been nothing without his long hair."
