Oh Yes! Trojan To Give Away Free Vibrators!
Talk about good vibrations...
Trojan Company, best known for its condoms, is going to give away 10,000 free vibrators from two hot dog carts Wednesday and Thursday.
One of the "Pleasure Carts" is going to be parked in the Meatpacking District, on 14th Street and Tenth Avenue -- while the other will be stationed in the East Village -- on Third Avenue between 12th and 14th Streets.
The company promises to hit all of the city's "hot spots" during the giveaway.
If, for whatever reason, you want even more hilariously appropriate verbiage, fear not: Additional advertising phrases include "Getcha vibes here!" and "Relish the moment."
The specific types featured will include 5,000 Tri-Phoria models (typically they cost $40 each) as well as 5,000 Pulse models (usually 30 bucks apiece) according to the New York Times.
Said a Trojan exec of a previous giveaway's success and this week's plans: "We thought that by giving out more vibrators, it would have more buzz, so to speak."
