Australian Burger Restaurant Uses Condoms To Promote Business
The condom packets bear the slogan ”get intimate with our new premium beef” and were delivered to letterboxes across New Farm, West End and Kelvin Grove at the weekend.
Burger Urge owner Sean Carthew said the complaints have begun rolling in.
”We’ve had a parent complain and say if their child found that in the letterbox that would be concerning,” he said.
”We’ve got some big franchise competitors and we’re a small business. When you just do standard flyer drops, more often than not they just go straight into the bin. We’re just trying to be a little bit creative about how we can market.”
Not everyone is happy about getting prophylactics in their mailbox
One irate condom recipient emailed Burger Urge to express his disgust.
”I’ve never contacted a company to have a whinge before but I’ve got a couple of extra days off this week so I’m making an exception for you,” he wrote.
”Yesterday you put a condom in my mailbox to try and inspire me to eat your burgers? Sorry I think you just lost a big chunk of market share to Grill’d and the local pub. At least they’ve got some shred of class.”
You get an “E” for effort Sean, but we don’t think anyone wants to associate lunch with hunch.
