Default How is this for an idea

So, we tried the flower campaign which worked. How, you say? There was free publicity and a Web2.0 social experiment. With me now?

Did you know that there was a show call Jericho on CBS which was cancelled. I never saw the show but people were really into it. They started a campaign where fans sent CBS execs peanuts http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/05/23/je...-cancellation/ and http://www.jericholives.com/

Well, this is similar to our flower campaign before. How about we do it again, with say nuts for one week, 12-packs of coke, anything that is small and inexpensive (under $5/10) but something that grabs publicity. We can pick a supplier in DC to do this, so volume will get lower prices.

The thing is though that this should happen every 2 weeks, on a Monday. How long, well, as long as needed, but at least till there is some progress.

What say, idea whacky enough to succeed?

One thing is for sure is that if you keep on sending nuts and coke they will keep on taking it week after week and enjoy them ... whether they will do something about our issues is another thing

It should be something that occupies a lot of space.. very visible.. can't be hidden away.. thats why flowers were good.

Yeah, there's no such thing as "too much" nuts and coke!

Also they might think we are NUTS to do this!!!
