You try to start a buzz, but that clever marketing campaign is a real buzz kill. Don’t follow these stinkers into the proverbial black hole:

Buy a one week vacation at Doggy Destinations and your dog is flying to Tahiti for free! (Return trip costs may apply.)

Sign up to win a potato a day for ten years! This contest presented to kick-off the new Urban Potato ad campaign: PIMP, “Please Ingest More Potatoes.”

Subscribe today to the free Coffins Express Newsletter, The Dead Times, and you’ll automatically be entered in the first annual “Get Rid of Granny!” contest. The grand prize is lifetime room and board at The Oat Home for the Old.

Imagine the freedom of never worrying about your granny bill ever again!
