Argos doesn’t count.

October 13, 2010

Or rather, someone at Argos needs to learn to count.

This was part of an email I just received from Argos.

So, three possible sources of the error. What do you reckon?

And how many Argos, advertising or IT employees saw this advert before it was emailed to (guessing) several hundred thousand names in the UK?

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

      This post was about the faulty arithmetic in the advert, not about MP3 players. doh!

    I’ve just realised that first comment was from someone called Andrew, referring to his husband !!!!!
    It gets weirder.

    I guess it’s just another random spam post with a link to a site selling something. I normally delete them but this is just silly enough to leave.
