LIVERPOOL, New York (NBC/WSTM) — It was an engineer’s dream: using duct tape for a very special purpose.

Of course, it was also a very frivolous purpose — as employees of Lockheed Martin got to tape their co-workers to the wall.

No need to fear; this was a competition, happening as part of National Engineers Week to see who could duct tape their co-worker to the wall for the longest time.

The time to beat is 20 minutes.
