Desk toys are a way for workers to express who they are, what interests they might have and at times, show their fellow co-workers a sliver of their personality.

What happens when the office is quiet? What happens when all the workers are gone? Do the desk toys come out and play? Do they feel lonely?

Well, in this viral video, the story of the lonely desk toy is revealed.

The description is, "A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View."
