I got this in an email today, and though highly stereotyped it's a good warning to all those people who have trouble buying gifts at Christmas ...

Enjoy (with tongue in cheek!)

In the Doghouse

Btw, this does work both ways ... I wouldn't dream of getting my fella power tools for Christmas - unless he'd specifically asked for them!!

Very cool viral marketing campaign there Carter.

These types of things can be cheaper than a TV commercial to make/air, yet reach even bigger audiences.

I think it's hilarious ... *takes vacuum cleaner back to store* :oops: :P

I did feel it was a very clever campaign ... much more effective than just a big loud "buy her jewellery" poster or flashing neon sign.

This is subtle and comical at the same time.

Yes guys - take those deep fat fryers (believe me, I knew someone who got one for an anniversary present and she was a health food freak!!), vacuum cleaners and washing machines back to the store now!! ;) :P
