A young intern at a Montreal tech startup just couldn't stay awake on his second day at work.

Eduard Paraschivescu, identified as TheOrangeDuke on Reddit, said his workmates at Gsoft saw him sleeping and made the best of the situation, snapping a photo of him surrounded by his co-workers.

“One of the associates noticed me sleeping. And it just went downhill from there!” he wrote in response. "It doesn't really bother me - I'm not naked, I'm not getting shamed," Paraschivescu told CBC News. "I'm just surrounded by amazing people who are having a blast!"

A link to the  hi-res image was posted on Reddit with an invitation to Photoshop it and users took up the challenge. Check out a few of the images above.
