Do you want a free Thai massage?

Hell Pizza is giving away Thai massages and ripping people off in the process.

All you have to do is order a premium pizza, wedges and 1.5L coke for $25 and the Thai massage is included in its hot as hell deal. So says the flier with a pic of a scantily clad Thai that I got in my letterbox today.

But then you read the small print:"Thai massage must be redeemed in Thailand on the day of purchase. Flights not included". Problem is that it is a Thai from New Zealand on the front cover of the flier. That's false advertising - a bit like Labour advertising its Working for Families package with a picture of an American family.

But then on the back, if you bother to read further small print, it says " Oh, and I`m sure it comes as no surprise, but we cant actually give you the Thai Massage".

How disappointing. It's a pretty bad deal - as you can get two pizzas - double classic and double premium - and wedges for $20.00, which is a much better deal. If you really want the added coke you would pay less than $25.00 and get more pizza than the massage deal. But if you want a good pizza deal you can get four large pizzas from Dominos for less than $25 this weekend.

So basically Hell Pizza is using a massage enticement to sell pizzas - but overinflating the price and not offering or providing the massage. Even without the massage the deal is not hot as hell at all - it's a hell of a bad deal - marketing to the brain dead.

Yeah, and as it happens, I would be angry to have to tell my kiddies "no, you can't go get the mail, because some bad people might have put naughty stuff in our letter box"

What the blazes is happening to ths country... is nothing sacred?

Seems to me that they're losing focus - there's a difference between "Building an iconic brand" and "Being Evil" and they've (yet again) crossed the line.
