ANYONE FOR A RED BULL?
GET ONE QUICK
So at 4:34 on Wednesday afternoon, WTMJ receptionist puts out this harmless little memo:
If there is anyone out there that enjoys Red Bull, there are about 20 cans here in reception.....and they’re still cold!
Please come and take some!
Hey, around this place...you could say you have toenail clipping for free...and people would take them. So after the initial e-mail went out, guess how long before this one hit the electronic highway?
All Red Bull is Gone!
Any guesses? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
It came out at 4:41. That's 7 freaking minutes! The best part? I went racing to the front, and radio news director Jon Byman kiddingly said "you better hurry, they're nearly all gone!"
He wasn't joking. I got the last 2. One for me, and one for Executive Sports Producer Rick Rietbrock. So when co-worker Tim Remshek saw me with the last two, and lit me up like a Christmas tree.
Well, come to find out Rick didn't want to ride the Bull, so I quickly ran down the hall, can concealed, and gave it to Tim.
The two lessons I learned? Never underestimate the power of the Bull...and the draw of FREE.
Wanna get rid of that old washing machine? A mower that doesn't work? Or a basketball that never stays inflated? Just put FREE on it...and watch it go.
