There are people out there who are willing to do just about anything…like that woman who tattooed her forehead with a website URL for $10,000. Painful, disgusting, and shameless are all appropriate reactions both to the woman’s actions and to the company that thought it would get a PR boost and some branding out of it.
Only sleazy companies would be interested in something like that.
Unless it is for a better cause than just cheap PR…and there may be just that case. As Adfreak notes, an Alberta, Canada man is offering to brand his prosthetic leg with the cash he generates from that going to pay for a better prosthetic leg.
It’s not a bad reason, I guess. Adfreak agrees, saying that it’s hard to pick on a guy with one leg and that it would be great to use sticker logos like NASCAR while he participates in fun runs and the like.
I still can’t really get behind it though…it just seems so crass to brand yourself, even if a prosthetic leg isn’t technically yourself.
