HBO: Office Gift Exchange

'Tis the season for brutal honesty.

Editor's Pick

Christmas isn't the time for cheer and joy. If this spot from BBDO NY and HBO is to be believed, it's the time for telling people exactly how you feel about them. But telling them straight to their face sans the passive aggressive magic of making a point isn't that much fun, so why not let your choice of HBO DVDs do the talking? There's something for everyone: "Game of Thrones" has enough sex, lies and backstabbing to fit any gift recipient, while "True Blood" is a great choice for the inappropriate co-worker at the next cubicle. Just make sure that the people you actually do decide to gift these DVDs to have never seen this spot, or at least have a great sense of humor.
