Getting a head in advertising

An innovative ‘item’ is available on E-Bay – ‘Average Joe’s forehead’ – 30-days of a temporary tattoo of your message/logo/whatever, on Andrew Fisher’s, “from Omaha, Nebraska”, forehead – although he does reserve the right to veto offensive images. The bidding’s going well, helped in no small part by the extensive coverage the story is garnering. Hmm.. no actual photo of that “highly valuable advertising space”, though, nor of the surrounding ‘neighbourhood’ – a pig in a poke anyone?

    Just in case anyone’s interested.. *yeah right* the “highly valuable advertising space” will, according to the current highest bid, now set you back over $15,000.. 3 days bidding to go.

    will they pay?

  • peteb

    That is the question, cg.. but purely on a cursory glance.. a lot of those bids seem legit.

    It wouldn’t surprise!

    It wouldn’t surprise me! hit return too soon.

    who ever paid for this has serious issues.

    He’s managed to get a lot.. and I mean a lot.. of coverage, cg. In terms of advertising the potential may well be there to justify the price paid.
