Ad Fail – Groupon Father’s Day Deals

May 31st, 2012 — 8:58am

It’s a joke. We know. And we also know that Groupon has a notorious wacky sense of humor…but…what?

Groupon is inviting consumers to purchase their Father’s Day deals because you should “celebrate the man who gave birth to you.”

Initially, we thought it might just be a type error. Nope. Wrong.

Next to a picture of a pregnant man gazing adoringly into a mirror is, “He felt you grow and kick inside of him for nine months—thank him with deals on Father’s Day gifts.”

Now, don’t get us wrong, at Welt, we like comedy; but we like it best when it enhances the message, not obscures it. How do you think it affected their deals?

Hit us back…
