Dumb eBay auction of the week

Adland: 

Jamie Pendt is selling the use of his brain as advertising for 45 days. The auction is set to end Tuesday, and currently has a bid of 1 cent (that's after getting coverage by the press, mind you). Here's a description:

" I will allow the winning bidder to fill my brain with anything about their company. Whomever I meet or run into would learn quickly of your name. At the checkout counter, doctor's office, meetings of any sort, Thruway booth, restaurant and every place I step into, your name will be announced. I won't be able to control myself."

Not only do you get this guy's brain, but he's throwing in the ad space on his blowup companion! Wow! What a deal! ;)

    I put a guy's brain up for auction on eBay some time back - Byrnes Brain on eBay

    There were a few bids but it failed to reach the reserve. Needless to say, this guy is now known far and wide as "Brainless" Byrnes 'cause he was too tight to even bid on his own brain!
