The First Images Out of Ernst & Young’s International Intern Leadership Conference Are a Tad Disturbing

Ahhh interns, gotta love 'em. Ernst & Young loves them so much they hold a yearly conference for the kids who stand out as best and brightest at Disney World, bringing out 1,800 interns from around the world last year.

This year's party has just started but thanks to the EY Careers page on Facebook, we've got a bit of an idea how this is going to go. Imagine stepping off a bus and being greeted by your fellow capital market servants all painted up in black and yellow cheering just for YOU? Way to create unrealistic expectations, Uncle Ernie.

WOOOOO YEEEEEEAHHHH I'm so excited OMG!!!!

In fairness, that's actually pretty cute so we're not going to hate on them for that. We will, however, hate on them for this:

Seriously? A gorilla? In an Ernst & Young t-shirt? Gripping interns in short shorts? God I'm never going to be able to unsee that… moving on to the real highlight of this collection…

Do my eyes deceive me? Is that really a PIMP outfitted in EY yellow with a gaggle of girls gathered around him? Oh this is absolutely priceless and strangely fitting. Since the Facebook album lacks captions, we can only guess what is going on here. I think it has something to do with indentured servitude and is perhaps an incredibly perceptive reflection on EY's part of how it pimps out staff to clients for its own financial gain but again, I'm just guessing here.

Have fun at Disney World, kids, it's the last fun you're going to have for a long time.
