Playboy mannequin Luana Sandien desires to get her fingers on the notorious handkerchief that Lionel Messi used to take in the tears and snot that poured out when the Barcelona legend introduced August 8 that he was leaving the membership. Messi described the second as “a chilly bathe” and known as it “the toughest second of his profession.”
The tears streamed down. Final week, it was introduced that the tissue Messi used to wipe away the ache would go up for public sale and that piqued the curiosity of Ms. Sandien, an enormous Barcelona fan. A price ticket of $1 million was placed on the handkerchief, however that didn’t cease Luana from throwing a bid on the desk for the vendor to consider.
“I bid $600,000 to get the Messi handkerchief gone [sic], after that the advert disappeared,” she told European media outlets. “I gave greater than half the marketed quantity believing I’d win, however the advert disappeared after my bid, out of nowhere.
“The advert went off the air with out giving extra details about the end result of the case, so we don’t know if anybody purchased the artefact, or if the advertiser gave up on the concept.”
“I hope I made it,” she added.
What was Sandien’s plan with the used tissue? She claimed it will be used as a prop for a unadorned photoshoot. That is advertising and marketing 101 throughout the Web period. I’ve to imagine the plan was to pay the $600k, do the photoshoot after which resell the tissue to another fan for effectively over the $600k, take the earnings and reinvest them some other place.
It jogs my memory of my plan with Cam Newton’s BCS sport pants. I turned these issues into hundreds of thousands of pageviews with an preliminary price of $1,500. Do you guys notice the worth of hundreds of thousands of pageviews? Far more than $1,500 and I nonetheless personal these pants. That jogs my memory, does anybody wish to purchase Cam’s pants? I in all probability ought to promote these to an Auburn collector.
