First - what you need to know. I work as a System Administrator of a Windows NT network. This means I get on all kinds of mailing lists for people to send me promotional material.
I just got back to my desk a little while ago and found a white envelope on it. I picked it up and it rattled. Upon opening I discovered a pill bottle with three little white pills in it.
On the outside of the bottle it says:
“For speedy data recovery, take 2 and call us now!”
and the name of the company.
The pills are actually Tic-Tacs.
Is it me? This seems weird. Their promotional gimick centers around pretending to send me prescription drugs.
I’ll admit, it does assure that I’ll remember the company. But not as a company I have a high opinion of.
