The Ebay themed slot machine?


AskACopywriter has been to Vegas and found this branded oddity - the eBay themed slot machine. I guess with the eBay vernacular using phrases like "I won it on ebay" it actually makes sense but it had me squirting coffee out of my nose when I saw it. It just seems so wrong.


Unlike those digital cameras I keep seeing in shops with the "youtube ready" stickers on them, eBay paid for their name to be on here. Did youtube pay for those co-branding stickers I wonder? That reminds me, have ads in the states stopped saying "AOL keyword..." finally? That seemed to me to be a huge waste of ones own branding space, but I bet AOL loved it.

    That is weird but eBay does like the 'big spenders'.
