Heh. Good marketing.
YouNeverCall, the online cell phone store, has jumped on the coattails of Google’s $30m moon landing prize announcement….
YouNeverCall has decided to allow a few more days to place the first cell phone call from the moon and so the deadline has been set for January 7, 2015.
Just in case you were wondering, that’s a Wednesday.
In order to claim the $10,000 prize a cell phone call must be placed by a device or person present on the Moon’s surface. This call must pass through a commercially available cellular phone to YouNeverCall’s corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, CA. The call may travel via any protocol or compression before reaching our offices, and it must be possible to for the caller to answer a few yes/no questions correctly.
That’s not it though!
Like Google, YouNeverCall is offering a lesser prize for companies who achieve a related but lesser goal. YouNeverCall is offering a $500 prize to the first SMS message that travels via the moon and lands on one of our corporate cell phones.
Furthermore, the company is offering a $100 bounty to the first party who receives a cell phone call on the Moon that rings using the infamous Crazy Frog Ringtone.
I think I’ll happily up this oneto $200 NOT to ring using the Crazy Frog Ringtone…
