Back in march viral advertisings enfant terrible Mr Asa Bailey, famous from the ogilvy hijack, was auctioning off a sure-fire viral idea on Ebay and spewing releases about it in hopes offinding a bidder. I never bothered to write about the auction, but Researcher.se in Sweden did, my guess was that if anyone would buy the idea it would probably be Goldenpalace.com - the guys who bid on anything inane on ebay as their sole marketing strategy. Who else would bid on a poor Posh Spice imitator getting run over by a car? Or as the ebay auction read: …Victoria is then unfortunately hit by a London buss. [sic].
Well, whaddyaknow I was right, the viral has now been sponsored by Goldenpalace.com. You can see the fake security-came footage here in the film called Kill Posh Asa Bailey Viral, where Asa Baileys name is as loud and large as the "clients" name Golden Palace's, because you know, being a viral advertising marketer means you have to get your name as well as your clients out there. Right.
