Uncoolest Promotion Ever

Not really much to say about this. Except I do love a promotion where I can barely think of anybody who would genuinely LOVE this prize.

Marketers drive me effing insane. How locked away in your own world do you have to be to think this is a relevant, good thing to do?

It's like how nacho companies think that I really want to go spend a few hours of my life on their nacho website, because it's really more of a "lifestyle site" with "fun viral videos."

Incidentally as a small comedy group, the brief window where you can make "viral videos" for nacho website companies in some deluded belief that that's what the kids want to see is a highly profitable one.

Yeah, it'd be hard to argue that you're being ironic while playing your Alvin and the Chipmunks Strat.

I know know exactly who this promotion is aimed at: David Cross.

Because even though it's, you know, a total piece of crap prize that's totally not worth anybody's time and he wouldn't even play it, or take it out of the box, or take the box off his front step, he'll still enter the contest because you are all idiots.
