OfficeMax. Penny Pranks.


During their back-to-school sale, OfficeMax sells supplies for just one cent each. To announce that OfficeMax wants people’s pennies, we thought we'd find out how other vendors react when presented with them as payment.

We outfitted a mansion with hidden cameras, posed as eccentric billionaires, and tried to buy expensive art and antiques with nothing pennies.

Some vendors obliged, others told us where to go.
