Reaction to Reaction

This is a rant because meh I feel like it after what I had to go through. Now I've been cleaning inventory and actually got to the Reaction gifts from X-Mas of last year. So I'm unpacking this one box and find a notecard reading

"Ok Reaction fans, you've been getting your gifts a litttttle to easy. Today, we're gonna play a little game. Pass the Parcel.
The idea is to keep unpacking the boxes until you get to the last gift.. not telling you what the last gift is, because that'll ruin the surprise, though I do hope you all enjoy it.
To keep unpacking... 1. Rez the first gift box onto the floor.2. Right click the gift box, and click "Open"3. Click "Copy to inventory".You should now have a new folder in your inventory, with the new giftbox. Repeat the process with each new giftbox.
Please be sure to pick up or delete the previous gift boxes' after you've rezzed the other due to prim limits.
Those who make it to the final gift, please don't spoil it for others, just enjoy it.
Have a Merry Christmas, and don't forget to come back tomorrow for your next daily gift."

So I start unpacking...I liked Reaction. Key word LIKED there folks. But 26 empty boxs later I get to another notecard at the end saying:

Merry Christmas, you finally found the final gift box!
You were a little late though... Reaction's evil little elfs stole your pressie... better luck tomorrow.
Cheers, Everyone from Reaction. :)

Now I'm not a marketing major. I major in accounting/business but WTF. Do you REALLY truely and honestly think that schemes like that is going to win you customers? If you do, need some mental help.

Sorry for the rant but if I had found the time to unpack this around XMas. I'd be like 10x more pissed off about the whole ordeal. Don't complain about free stuff? Pfft. Try dealing with schemes like this here and there while yer just doing things for fun and see how you feel when people go overboard.

(I so promise next post will be something cute and nice and with pics)

Lol.. I remember that gift! But they did that back in 2008, which is one of the reasons I was real careful to pick and choose stuff in 2009.

I still have TONS of stuff to unpack (probably 2-5k items heh), and not looking forward to junk like that either.
