The Naked Rowers Saved BuzzFeed From The Worst Day Ever

Stroke longer, stroke harder.

Posted on

Today looked like it was going to be a DISASTER at BuzzFeed. First thing in the morning, the coffee machine broke down and Mike needed his caffeine!

Luckily, today BuzzFeed had a very special visitor: THE WARWICK ROWERS aka the Naked Rowers, our favorite homophobia-fighting athletes!!!

The Warwick Rowers row for Warwick University in the U.K. (so yes, they're college students!) Every year, the boys publish a naked calendar to fund Sport Allies, an outreach program that fights homophobia in sport!

The Warwick Rowers row for Warwick University in the U.K. (so yes, they're college students!) Every year, the boys publish a naked calendar to fund Sport Allies, an outreach program that fights homophobia in sport!

And they were here to save the day like the handsome British superheroes they are!

WARWICK ROWERS TO THE RESCUE! Homophobia and broken coffee machines don't stand a chance.

Cheers, mates!

But then things got worse (as they tend to do) and the copy machine broke. Erin needed to print some very important documents.

Luckily, the Naked Rowers knew how to use their tools!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

All fixed! Thanks, guys!

But things took another turn for the worse in the office. All of a sudden, the wifi went down. *GASP*

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Luckily, the intrepid Warwick Rowers weren't afraid to use their hands and get to work...

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

... and before you knew it, the internet was back and running. Or should we say, ROWING.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Darn it, Javi sent an email to the wrong person. The consequences could be DISASTROUS.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Luckily, the Naked Rowers work just as fast out of the water as they do on it.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

And by a STROKE of luck, they deleted that email in NO time at all!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Oh well, if it isn't the most BORING meeting EVER. No one is paying attention!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Wait a second, who is that? It's the Warwick Rowers! SHIRTLESS! WITH CANDY! BEST MEETING EVER.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

UH OH, Morgan was NOT happy and she just handed Sam a crazy project with the tightest deadline ever. What is he going to do?

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Once again, the Warwick Rowers were here to save the day and bang this project out with Sam!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

All finished! Great things happen when you put your minds and bodies together. #TEAMWORK

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

EW! Candace was coughing up a lung. She REALLY should have taken a sick day!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But the Rowers weren't having any of her nonsense. TAKE HER OUTTA HERE! Luckily, Candace didn't seem too upset about having to take a "sick" day.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Oh snap, the snack room ran out of Sam's favorite snack (fruit gummies, FYI) and now he's HANGRY.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But naturally, the Naked Rowers had the goodies. CRISIS AVERTED.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Aaaaaaaaaaaand then the stapler is jammed. What IS IT with this day?

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Thankfully, the Warwick Rowers were here to get to the bottom of this.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

THAT WAS EASY.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Since he had his caffeine, Mike was super peppy on his phone. And he was talking way, way too loud.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

The boys weren't having any of it, so they fixed the sitch. With the Rowers around, why even bother talking?

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

BRRRRR. The office was WAY too chilly.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Luckily, the Rowers are here to warm things back up. All better!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Lauren was hard at work until she accidentally spilled coffee all over herself! How clumsy!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But thankfully, the boys were more than happy to clean up Lauren's mess.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But things were about to get much, much worse. Kirsten found herself the very unlucky victim of a dreadful papercut. Oh no!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But by the grace of God (or at least the Queen), the Warwick Rowers used all their rippling muscles to stitch Kirsten right up.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Lunchtime seemed to be going swimmingly, until Sam's food started to stink up the place.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But like the good Englishmen they are, the Rowers were here to take out the trash... and Sam's smelly lunch! In Union Jack budgie smugglers, nonetheless!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Klutzy Christian was working hard at his desk when — PLOP — he fell right out of his chair on his butt.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But the Naked Rowers picked him right up, and Christian looked practically regal on his royal throne.

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Perhaps because of the day's bad vibes, but Kristin just wasn't feeling herself. She was having a bad hair day!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Thankfully, the Warwick Rowers proved they aren't just pretty faces themselves... they also can spread the love!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

EARTHQUAKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

But with the Warwick Rowers in town, BuzzFeed overcame disaster and was it was back to work in no time at all!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

Basically, the Naked Rowers saved the day... COUNTLESS times. What would we do without them?

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

In fact, they did such a good job, the BuzzFeed employees decided they might as well take the rest of the day off!

Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

And now they're running BuzzFeed! Have fun, boys!
