Speaking of swag

Jeff got this at work. We agreed it was the lamest giveaway on the face of the earth. The photo doesn't do justice to the cheapness of the nylon involved. This is a site that adds 500,000 users a day (so says Wikipedia). Could they not spring for something a little more

a) creative
b) appropriate to the brand
c) enticing to the people they are trying to entice
d) just not so cheesy?

Wow, that is lame. A kleenex holder? So you can wipe your tears when your friends suddenly take you off their friends list?

Silly, silly choice.

I knew MySpace sucked. Did they have to PROVE it?

Kleenex? At least at Blogher, we got a condom for goodness sakes...

Seriously. Isn't their main demographic 18 - 24 year olds? Shouldn't they be giving away some Evanescence mp3s or something?

lol...did it at least come with the Kleenex?

I don't get the appeal of MySpace. My new office mate started talking about her MySpace page a few weeks ago and I tried not to look like I was in shock. (she's at least 30 years old)

Kleenex? That was so unexpectedly random that I had to look at the picture for an extra long time, trying to figure out what I was missing!
