Is this some kind of realty show contest gone wrong?
How stupid do they think the average person is? (ok dumb question we are pretty stupid on average, but thats not the point…)
If you look on thier site, it shows 50 people have been spotted from the western half of the US already. NOT just California mind you, a good 5 states. Why am I telling you this? well, because you have a better chance of winning the mother fucking lottery ( California lottery that is - 1:14,000,000) then being the 1 person out of 100 million other oxygen wasting organisms spotted with a water bottle sticking out your pie hole.
I quote Adam Sandler in an SNL sketch titled stand up and win:
“Who are the add wizards who came up with this one?”
Seriously, why would you waste an ungodly amount of money giving away money to unsuspecting thirsty people that HAPPEN to be walking down the street. How does this give you any fuckin’ publicity at all? And no, I can guarantee with my utmost psychic ability, there is no one is following around blimps waving water bottles in the air.
Here’s an idea, take your marketing guru, drop him off at a deserted island with nothing but a pen, a piece of paper, a bottle of aqufina, a volleyball, and a loin cloth. Then tell that imbred schizomaniac to
STOP WASTING OUR FUCKIN’ TIME
thank you, class dismissed
Not to mention that it doesn’t neccessarily help them sell any more water. People could just as easily buy one bottle of Aquafina and keep refilling it with tap water if they really cared about winning the contest.
In order for advertising to be effective, they need people to BUY thier product… unfortunetly they don’t get royalties everytime thier trademark is mentioned on internet messege boards.
Actually I hope this does inspire people to go outside with aquafina bottles… I kinda feel sorry for the advertising agent about to get fired over this disaster.
Oh man that is hilarious I didn’t see that.
If that ain’t dancing circles around a loophole I don’t know what is.
I just checked my bottle (and I thought $1.29 at the food court was bad!) and this is indeed the case. And it tastes just like my well water here at home. Guess I’ll have to drink Poland Spring if I want the “real” stuff.
And yes, ** Mercury**, I am a dirty rotten cheater, at least where dumb contests sponsored by companies who bottle municipal water and sell it for outrageous prices are concerned.
