Odd contest from Domino’s Pizza, and I think it is interesting, but is it really worth it?
The Domino’s Pizza Couch features:
- Two flat panel screen televisions
- DVD player
- Mini refrigerator
- Xbox with three controllers
- Electric Red MP3 player
- XM Radio with one year of free service
- NEXTEL cellular phone and a NASCAR headset
- Two Domino’s Pizza Heat Wave hot bags to keep your pizzas warm
- Coca-Cola beverage cooler
- Remote control caddy
- Bottle opener
All of the couch action can be captured with an included Kodak Easy Share camera. If that’s not enough, guys can kick back and enjoy the special reclining option and head rests that double as paper towel holders. To ensure couch-sitters are respectable and presentable when they leave the couch, Old Spice has provided a year’s supply of men’s deodorant and body spray.
The couch also features the autographs of two-time Daytona 500 winner (and Domino’s Pizza Driver) Michael Waltrip and other NASCAR drivers.
The $30,000 male must-have is available to the first buyer who calls 1-800-521-8274 (ask for Scott Senne) between 12-2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Dec. 14, so devotees of this divan should work on their dialing dexterity. All major credit cards are accepted.
I was like, that is pretty cool. All you have to do is be the first to call and voila, it’s yours, but there must be a catch? Hopefully it is just a skill testing question, I am good at those… So I read on:
Some nit-picky details: The purchaser will be responsible for shipping and handling of $5,000-$7,000, depending on location (to ensure delivery by Dec. 24), and all sales taxes. The purchaser understands that the couch is a one-of-a-kind, prototype that comes without a warranty and is being sold in “as-is” condition. Hey, think of it as a cave floor model.
I can’t afford to pay $5000 shipping and handling charge. I would have to default on the prize, or find someone willing to buy it off me. Rediculous!
Thanks to Engadget for the heads up on this.
