Got me interested.

Anybody driven through the desert near Tucson and seen all those signs for "THE THING"??? There are (i'm not joking) at least 2 billboards per mile for 50 miles. It's crazy. And you drive by the place that "THE THING" is being kept in and it's a crazily-painted double-wide trailer. I think i heard it was some fake mummified baby or something like that. ...anyways.

Considering that its ebay's colors.
Considering that its hosted by their ad agency.

Probably yes.

Haha, yeah, i've seen "The Thing" signs. When you get closer to it, there are multiple signs separated by no more than 100 feet. It's rather funny.

Considering this is the first I've heard of it and there's just over a day left I'd say this was very ineffective in creating buzz. just my two cents.
Yeah, me neither, and I'm practically addicted to the net. If I haven't seen it, surely the ad wasn't effective at luring their target market....."computer nerds."

What the fsck? It looks cheesy and stupid.
:rolleyes: Honestly, how old are you?

Doesn't seem like it was very effective, I never saw it anywhere on the net or anywhere on TV. I am kinda curious what it is, now though.

It's the Osbourne 3. But don't buy that one, the Osbourne 4 will be so much better.

Wow.. those are some horrible fake tv shows.
I'll agree, this marketing campaign has about as much appeal as Ebay's front page.
