This Is The Best Send-Off We've Ever Seen

If you left your last job with a few pats on the back, some free cocktails, and a card signed by people you'll probably never see again, you're about to feel extremely jealous.
Departing Net-a-Porter CEO Mark Sebba got the ultimate send-off when he showed up to the luxury e-tailer's London headquarters on July 9. Instead of a cuppa and a stack of memos, Sebba — who formally announced his resignation earlier this week — was greeted by countless employees holding posters of his face and signs reading "Mark Sebba Is The Man." Things only got more awesome from there.

What followed has to be the most elaborate, touching, and just plain rad company send-off of all time. A personal serenade to Aloe Blacc's "The Man." A gospel choir. Drummers. A bagpiper. Mariachis. Dancing women in headdresses. Contortionists. Choreographed dance routines from Net-a-Porter's offices worldwide. A Chinese dragon. Everyone's getting raises (hopefully)!
Sebba took it all in without cracking. In a true testament to whole British-stiff-upper-lip thing, the man of the hour returned to his desk, accepted a hot beverage from site founder Natalie Massenet, and addressed the troops.
"Thank you very much, everybody," he told the crowd. "I'm a bit overwhelmed, but how about getting back to work?" (Good Morning America)
