In a remarkable marketing stunt, Pawngo.com left 900 pounds of Butterfingers candy bars in Copley Square, Boston. Next to the pile of candy, a sign read, â€œThank you Wes Welker â€“ Pawngo.com.â€
Clearly, the company is calling out Welker, the wide receiver for the Patriots, who dropped a crucial pass late in last Sundayâ€™s Super Bowl game. And it doesnâ€™t take a rocket scientist to see what the message here is: Pawngo.com thinks Welker is all Butterfingers.
The company put out a Twitter message, â€œWeâ€™re giving Boston a late morning snack to get over Sundayâ€™s loss #butterfingers.â€
Hereâ€™s a picture of people clamoring for their Butterfingers:
If youâ€™re in Boston, go get yourself a late snack!
