Bacon's Thinks People Will Pay $500 For Free Super Bowl Commercials
One has to wonder what idiot over at Bacon's came up with this lame idea. Recently, it sent an email out to its subscribers offering...wait for it...a DVD with all the Super bowl ads on it...for $500! Does Bacon's really think the PR industry, or anyone for that matter, hasn't heard of iFilm, Yahoo, AOL, YouTube, MySpace, Advertising Age, USA Today, the DVR or any of the thousands of other places Super Bowl commercial can be seen for...oh...$500 less than $500? Apparently not as it seems to think there are people in this world that will cough up $500 for what everyone else can get for free. Whacked. Truly whacked.
UPDATE: Competitrack is doing it too. Are we missing something here? Do people actually pay for this sort of thing?
