It's nice to see that our boss, "Java Jack" Tunnicliffe, is maintaining a healthy lifestyle while he's on vacation.

Being the thoughtful guy that he is, Jack sent along the morning view from his room for the Java staff to…

Before you stomp off to the nearest multiplex to yell at the teenage concession worker that you've been ripped off all these years, watch this video first.
