It's been a half-year since Playfish has attempted a fan counter boost by luring in folks with free items. Currently, the Facebook game's page has 7.2 million fans, but Playfish would like to see it close the breach to 8 million.
As an incentive, they've been running a banner ad for pink deer head wall mount above The Sims Social game, announcing that everyone will get a free deer head when the game's page reaches 8 million 'Likes'. Another reminder popped up on the Facebook page during the weekend, only this time, they specify it's a "FREE FAKE REINDEER" instead.
Frankly, they can call it whatever they want. Nothing changes the fact that it's pink, it's a head of a deer, it's looks very much dead, and it's one of the most bizarre giveaway items ever conceived, if not downright freakish. I can't imagine many people wanting this, even if it's free. They better make this deer head sing -- something completely within their power to do so -- to make it worthwhile.
Do you think that whoever came up with this free pink deer head idea is bonkers? What should a Facebook game page offer to get you to 'Like' it and follow it? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment
