It was supposed to be a night of celebration for the hard-working employees at a local marketing firm. But things quickly spiraled out of control when a group of overly enthusiastic employees hit the dance floor with one too many drinks in their system.

Eyewitnesses report that the group attempted to perform the iconic "YMCA" dance, but things went awry when one employee fell off the platform and onto a table full of hors d'oeuvres.

"I couldn't believe it," said coworker Karen Smith. "I mean, we're all for having a good time, but this was just downright embarrassing."

The incident has sparked concern among officials, who worry that excessive alcohol consumption at company parties could lead to more serious incidents.

"This is a real problem that affects many firms," said safety expert Dr. Phil Jones. "We've seen cases where individuals have engaged in inappropriate behavior, taken unnecessary risk, and even caused physical harm to themselves or others."

As a result, firms have been advised to adopt stricter policies regarding alcohol consumption at work functions.

Some employees are understandably upset by the new guidelines. "It's like they're taking away our freedom to have fun," complained one worker. "But I guess we'll just have to find another way to let loose."

In contrast, others are relieved by the new restrictions. "Honestly, I'm just glad we won't be subjected to any more cringe-worthy dance moves," said another employee, rolling their eyes.

The move has also sparked a wave of commentary on social media, with many users expressing their thoughts on the matter.

"@MarketingFirm, we're all about working hard and playing hard, but seriously guys, maybe lay off the booze," wrote one Twitter user. Another added, "This is why we can't have nice things!"

Despite the mixed reactions, it is hoped that the new guidelines will help to prevent inappropriate behavior and ensure that company parties remain a safe and enjoyable way for employees to unwind and celebrate their hard work. And with any luck, the days of drunken "YMCA" renditions will soon be a thing of the past.
