Have you seen this company? I've heard it's some sort of marketing ploy for minicooper. I've seen the ads of TV....very funny.

It's real. You will receive the goods if you order them.

It's my favourite viral campaign since the Lee Jeans 'Dj Super Greg' ads.

Tribute site for DJ Super Greg. The original is long gone.
