Greedy Crowd Swarms Bin Filled With $2 Million in Pennies


Chicago Agency The Escape Pod put together a promotion for Office Max in which a giant bin filled with $2 million worth of pennies was placed inside Minnesota's Mall of America. Then, using greed as a motivator, the bin was opened to the public who, over three hours, emptied the bin completely revealing the Office Max logo. Once again, the ever-useless penny finds yet another use.

Correction: 2 million pennies (or $20,000). $2 million in pennies would probably take a whole lot longer than 3 hours to empty!

$2 Mil wouldn't have enough ROI $20k makes more cents.

Although poor reporting and fact checking maybe it was just $0.20 in a bucket out side a strip mall near MN.
