Bubble wrap and Boromir.jpgThere are appreciation days for everything. Cats, soda, office assistants … we’ve decided to start Dragon Egg Appreciation Day in honor of the return of “Game of Thrones” on April 1st. January 30th, however is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day! Yes, this packing material/stress relieving tool has it’s very own day and we’re celebrating this whole week by running up behind people in the office and popping it. Strangely, that’s not going over well.

Check out some of our favorite bubble wrap videos below, including cats on bubble wrap, a puppy freaking out on bubble wrap and Guillermo from the Jimmy Kimmel Live show celebrating it in his own special way. Bubble wrap even has it’s very own song! (It’s kind of weird. We’re warning you.) So cheers to you, bubble wrap! As Jimmy says, you’re far better than packing peanuts!
