If your boss does end up finding out…don’t tell them you got the information from us! We can all thank Pickswise.com because they have released a genius tool to help you sneakily watch college basketball championships at work, without your boss know.

Believe it or not, but one-third of fans admit that the annual college basketball championships decrease their productivity levels during work1, with 56% of millennials willing to miss a work deadline because of the tournament2. Well, the games are nearly here and basketball mania is soon to take over our TV screens on March 18th, 2021.

It has been discovered that 2.5 million people per day3 follow all the basketball madness whilst at work, with the average worker watching six hours of it throughout the tournament4. This ultimately results in more than 8 million hours spent watching games during workday3.

With virtual working still being the norm for many of us, Pickswise has released a cheeky little tool to get you away from virtual meetings and back to watching the game….all without your boss ever finding out. The tool titled ‘the virtual call escape’ is a unique product that clips onto the top of any laptop. The tool has two vertical arms placed in front of your laptop screen which allows the user to place an image of themselves perfectly in line with their webcam. This image then gives the appearance of being in a virtual meeting, when actually you’re enjoying the hoops and chilling out with a cold one. How genius! You can learn more about this tool here.
