Ooooh, Rocket Scientist…

Have to agree with Todd on this one: “The Pixie Stix people and the United Powdered Sugar Manufacturers have decided to drop free samples of their products by air over several major U.S. cities using cropdusters in a well-thought out promotional gimmick.” Oooooh, that’s smart, really smart. He also pointed out that Publishers Clearinghouse recently sent out “samples of OxiClean household cleanser, which comes in a white powdery form!” Oh, who was the rocket scientist that came up with that idea?

ok,juuuuuust to play devil’s advocate here…. it’s not like they dumped the samples as loose powder into plain envelopes with no return addresses, right? i mean, yeah it’s bad timing, but i think the panic is going a little too far if people can’t recognize a brightly colored commerical product sample. 😛

Yes, but the samples of OxiClean are *leaking*, which needless to say causes fear among the postal employees. I got a sample of Tide once in the mail – and there was powder everywhere. And how long before people with evil intentions attempt to disguise the anthrax or anything else in a different package?
