Around the middle of November I visited the Mitt Romney web store in search of Christmas presents. I found some amazing discounted bargains (surprise!). So, I went ahead and ordered a 6-pack of vanilla-scented Mitt Romney soap sculptures. My family was pleased, sort of, after a fashion, to receive them.
But wait! There was more!
If interested, join me below the fiscal-looking thingy.
Each vanilla-scented Mitt arrived in its own packing-peanut box. The bust is a pretty good (but monochrome beige, if can imagine) likeness, about 3 inches tall. The following text is included on the outside of the box:
DIRECTIONS: Rubba-dub-dub in the shower or the tub. Use Romney everyday to wash the stench away.Well, gee, that alone was enough for me, but to my surprise, there was an additional surprise included in the box! It was a gift card, with a 20% coupon code for ChocolateWeapons.com.
EXTERNAL USE ONLY. We know Mitt smells delectably delicious, but DO NOT EAT HIM! He's made of Soap!
What could be better than that, right?
Well, on the other side of the gift card was a 20% coupon for
The text on the latter website is especially nice, including Blow the Stench Away.
I encourage people to take a look at the merchandise, text, and imagery on these websites. Ask yourself whether you would be proud of including them as part of your promotional campaign merchandise.
This is pretty sad stuff.
