Who doesn’t want free diapers? Communists, that’s who
A few months ago, I got one of those PR pitches in my in-box (usually they’re all along the lines of “Hey, help us promote all the things and we will give you nothing in return!”) that always seem to clog up my real messages. You know, the real messages about PTA gossip, moms’ wine night scheduling and Josh reminding me to get off my ass and go to Home Depot for another 1,300 pounds of tile for a remodeling project at one of our rental buildings. My life, it is glamorous.
But this time, the pitch caught my eye because it was from LUVs Diapers and they were looking for funny moms to promote their funny videos. Dude! I’m a funny mom! I like funny videos! I waste entire days watching funny videos! I KNOW FUNNY VIDEOS! Then, when I saw the other five hilarious moms involved in the campaign, I coolly responded, “OMFGYES#@*^%$$#1315151.” I think at that point it was too late to un-invite me, so they were stuck. Haha, LUVs! Tricked you!
As part of the campaign, they turned their Twitter feed over to each of us for a week. Wow, that’s some serious trust right there. After that, I feel we could all go do one of those ropes courses together and catch each other falling backwards with our arms crossed over our chests.
And then they wanted us to show the funny videos to other moms. So what did I do? Hit up my local Target and sidled up to unsuspecting moms with my iPad and asked them to watch. And you know what? They all laughed. Seriously. The ads are that funny. And the other five moms all had the same reactions with their outings. Want to see what I mean? Check out the video below of the the six of us and our antics.
To celebrate the end of our marketing push, LUVS has offered all six of us SIX MONTHS OF FREE DIAPERS* to give to one of our readers. If you’re a mom in the thick of diapering (unlike me — I’m free! Free of diapers after seven years!) you know that diapers ain’t cheap. So this is some beau coup money-savings right here. Don’t have a kid in diapers? Give them to a friend or donate them to a local shelter or another non-profit that helps families in need.
