Foxconn is showing the world that it’s not just one of the premiere electronics makers for hire, but that it also knows how to throw a party.

The company staged employee rallies in its factories across China in order to boost morale. Tens of thousands turned up and they seem to have had quite a good time. Some sported Spider-man outfits, while others chose Victorian dresses. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past several months, Foxconn has faced a spate of suicides in its Chinese plants and 13 workers took their own lives since the start of the year, hence morale boosters are probably a good idea.

Foxconn has also announced that it would remove safety nets installed at some of its dorms and campuses following the suicides.
