Bag of Crap LXXIII: Crapvengers! Assemble!
We really missed out on some product placement.
Okay, okay, we admit it. While we figured it would do pretty well, we had no idea that Avengers flick would be that huge a deal. But wow, people are going nuts for it! Which really makes us regret not taking a stab at getting some Woot product placement in there somehow. I mean, obviously it wouldn’t have been anything HUGE. We didn’t have enough money to convince Joss Whedon to CGI a Woot Shirt onto the Hulk or anything. But it could’ve been subtle, like someone accidentally calling Captain America “Craptain America” or “Captain Americrap.” The sort of thing where people hear it and they’re all, “Did he really say that?”
But it turns out even that costs like $15 million. So if you could do us a favor and, if anyone asks where you got this Bag of Crap, mention that you saw it in the Avengers movie and immediately went out to buy one, we think that might be just as good. We’re willing to try, anyway.
THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS v4.0
I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond ONE bag of some kind and THREE crappy items.
II. Thou shalt probably expect not to even get a Bag o’ Crap at all. We only have enough for about 10% of the people who want them. Thou art probably in that other 90%.
III. Thou shalt notice that “crap” is right there in the title. Thou shalt not complain when it turns out we were telling the truth.
IV. Thou wouldst probably be better off spending thine eight bucks on just about anything else.
V. Thou shalt be assured that Woot hath upgraded its servers and code to minimize errors and crashes. But thou shalt remind thyself that even if those servers did work perfectly, it would simply mean the BoC sold out earlier.
VI. Should thou fail in thy quest for crap, congratulations. Failure is the biggest crap of all.
