It makes me really happy when cool people do funny things.
It also makes me happy when those same cool people troll the living hell out of people trying to take advantage of Black Friday.
This week we talk about how one company managed to convince 30,000 people to buy actual poop on Black Friday. The funny part is those 30,000 people were all aware of what they were buying and it still sold out. It sold out. Meaning they had a large supply of it...and enough people bought it to the point where there wasn't any left to sell. This is a serious story. Nothing I've typed in the last paragraph is false. Need proof? Click here. I'll be the first to admit I was 2 clicks away from owning it myself. I, like many it seems, was convinced that there had to be something more to it. And I, like many, was wrong.
I'm not sure if the proper lesson is "Live and Learn" or just simply "Always read the FAQ". Or maybe "Don't expect much on Black Friday from a company that clearly hates Black Friday." I suppose the answer is All Of The Above.
In other news: The Art Mercenary is back! The Steampunk Savage himself Brett Kelley joined us this week to talk poop, BKV, and he even pitched a new book he's really digging.
Does it get any better than that?
The answer is no. Enjoy, folks.
