What Would You Do for 37,375 Klondike Bars?
It's only for a month, and it's not like it says "Ask Me How to Enlarge Your Member!" or "Ace of Base Forever!" or, even worse, "W" ....shudder...
Definitely not! That's like...the prostitution of your face! Eek!
Aw c'mon now...is it really that bad? I know it's not the coolest thing to do, but let's really stop and think about it for a sec. $36,000 for 30 days of wearing a very lame temporary tattoo?
Keep in mind, though - this is the opinion of a man who ate a cicada in 7th grade for five bucks, for cripe's sake!
To me, it almost is a moot point WHAT the ad says, because I wouldn't be able to 1) endorse anything that I didn't fully believe in (unlike this guy, whoever he is, who just auctioned it off with only porn, etc. forbidden) and 2) I feel my face space is too valuable to put a price on. I mean...it's my face!
Plus, I'm not a huge fan of ads that aren't superbly clever anyway, and it just seems cheap and gimmick-y to advertise on a person's forehead. But then, that means I'd be out $30K. So...there's that.
That is about as dumb as wearing a "*" on your forehead during Halloween.

First of all - the "*" was brilliant! That damn *69 costume will go down as one of the best halloween costumes of all time. Deal with it.
Next - I wore that for free. I certainly would've worn it for 40 grand...and you would, too...
Nothing like calling YOUR OWN IDEA "brilliant"! ;)

Blowup dolls tied upside down and around the waist, and a star painted on your forehead is good stuff. G-rated joke in X-rated form...
So far, I'm the only person stupid (read: honest) enough to say they'd do this forehead thing. Man, either I'm wired all wrong, or something is amiss...
I'm in with you buddy. Thirty grand for 30 days? No question. A thousand dollars per day that a temporary tat is on your head is nothing. The guy said that he wouldn't do it for tasteless advertising, I think it's genius.
