When you have a blog, or whatever, you will eventually get on these “lists” of media/PR conglomerates who want to peddle their wares.
I don’t mind so much, makes me feels ‘special’ — even when I get emails that are so far beyond the realm of basketball, or Washington, D.C. … such as some sort of promotion about the “World’s Most Expensive Chocolate Golf Ball” (something to do with the U.S. Open), or even something from the Staten Island Neighborhood Association. Random shyte.
But really, I’m no different. We all get SPAM email … most of which I find so goddamn bizarre. I once saw a Dateline special on MSNBC about how a lot of unwanted internet stuff comes from Nigeria (or Aryan gangs), so I always root against their soccer team … of both sets just to be on the safe side.
Recently I got an email peddling this Serge Devant cat … after a couple internet searches and watching some stupid club head video on YouTube for about as long as it takes for Luke Perry to fall off a bull, I’m still not convinced this Serge dood is not Bruno.
But sometimes you get sports stuff, and the latest is something I would not buy in a million years, as the kids would say.
OneSneaker.com has this “gem” below for sale for $65. SIXTY-FIVE DOLLARS!
(and at last check, all they got is ‘out of stock’ mediums — did they really run out of their only size since I got the email at 1:20 am this morning?)
A d-bag and a d-bag on a t-shirt? Thanks, but no thanks … I’d almost rather be a d-bag wearing an Ed Hardy tee, but not really.
