Miyamoto Brought Coat Hangers to his Job Interview

Makes perfect sense
We know that Shigeru Miyamoto likes to do things his own way, and it's safe to say that's got him quite far in this business. Judging from how he approached his first interview at Nintendo, you may be surprised he even got a foot in the door.
The traditional props for a job interview tend to be a portfolio of work and a glistening resume, but Mr Miyamoto being Mr Miyamoto instead took along coat hangers he had designed specifically for young children. With crosses made to fit within a small notch in the wall and painted with elephants, the custom hangers clearly impressed Nintendo as the rest is history.
Imagine: had Mr Miyamoto played it safe and brought a showreel, the world of Nintendo could have be a very different place.
