Oscar Mayer's "Say it with Bacon" Father's Day Promotion (Real? or Joke?) - POLL

submitted on June 5, 2013 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
I nearly fell for this one - because they actually reported it on ABC Nightly News without indicating it might be a joke. Oscar Mayer publicized the site June 4 and began tweeting about it as if the offer was real. But looking closely, I saw that all of the choices are "Sold Out" except the ability to send a free "Messenger" card. There are 6 designs to choose from; they're calling the card a "virtual expression of bacon that will dazzle forever in the eye of the Internet."

Check out the Commander, Matador, and Woodsman gifts, the site's very well done. I thought the bacon cufflinks included with the Matador were a nice touch. I might actually send someone a virtual message, but I doubt that the gifts shown will ever really be available, since the FAQs say
The Oscar Mayer Original Strip, featuring the 4C Standard of Quality, is available at fine retailers across America, wherever groceries are sold.
