So I get this direct mail campaign from Versign in the mail today.
No biggie, since I get junk direct mail all the time from various companies trying to sell me their wares.
This one stood out like a sore big toe. They must have really done their homework (or got lucky). It had a picture of a boxer beating up on a BOZO the Clown punching bag (see fig.1)!
Figure 1 (see the full envelope here)
Inside the mailpiece was more anti-clown marketing material.
This full color insert was even more blatant with its anti-clown rhetoric. Even suggesting that clowns don't mind being punched (see fig. 2)
I may not be the biggest fan of verisign (network solutions), but they sure got lucky with this campaign. I signed up right away! Who knows, I might find a better payment processor.
Either way…I want my free punching bag!
