Like all NBA fans, Haukur Alfreðsson was eager to watch the championship series game between the Cavaliers and the Warriors. But Alfreðsson lives in Iceland, so he had to stay up until 4:00 a.m. The next day at work, he had some trouble staying awake...

The copy writer works at an ad agency in Reykjavík called Brandenburg, and his coworkers caught him napping.

Alfreðsson told BuzzFeed News he was only asleep for about 15 minutes, but it was enough time for one of his coworkers to snap a picture of him snoozing.
