Finally, someone got my three favorite things in one place!
Two “year 10″ kids (whatever that equates to in the U.K.) broke the most ambitious and genius marketing plan in history. With every purchase of ₤5 or more at their Burger and Beer Van operation, each customer received a free porno DVD. This kind of marketing innovation has me wondering if I should be going to get information on hot dog carts.
“You wouldn’t see this in many places. I can’t imagine that Norwich has the equivalent of this. It was like seeing something out of Phoenix Nights. I half expected Brian Potter to wheel himself around the corner at any given moment and ask what I was doing. Driffield really is like no other place I’ve visited.
My friend Adam has visited the caravan several times and has been able to give me a rough account of its rise and rise over the last few weeks:
* Week one- Two year 10 kids in a burger van selling burgers and booze. Free porn available on orders over £5.
* Week two- Two kids in a caravan selling burgers and booze, with a large posse. Free porn available on orders over £5.
* Week three- Two caravans selling burgers and booze, whilst they projected porn on to a nearby wall. This time accompanied by a man with a big bushy beard. Free porn still available on orders over £5.
* Week four- Two caravans selling burgers and booze, a small fire, porn being projected on to the wall. Free porn offer still stood. A mini motorbike was on one of the caravan roofs. Someone tried to steal it, and was chased off by the man with the big bushy beard brandishing a golf club.
I’ll give it to the two kids – they know their target audience. Ask most blokes in Driffield on a Saturday night what the three most important things in life are, and they will probably say “tits, meat, and beer”. It makes me wonder how nobody thought of this one stop shop sooner. I’m assuming that these lads are either business geniuses, or they paid some serious money to get some good focus groups going.” - AngryFlatCap
