Video Game Company's Awful PR Stunt Predictably Backfires & A BOMB SQUAD Has To Clean Up The Mess!

ubisoft watch dogs bomb squad pr stunt gone wrong

Well, that's one way to get people talking about your new product!

Trying to create a buzz for their new video game, game publisher Ubisoft settled upon the worst PR stunt in the history of ever.

Watch Dogs, their new action-adventure game, was shipped to reviewers and media outlets inside of a small, unmarked safe with a keypad on it. Accompanying the package was a "suspicious" letter that advised the recipient to check his or her voicemail.

Wait, what!? That sounds like protocol for sending out ransom notes, not video games!!! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

Lo-and-behold, an employee at Australia Square received the package and didn't know precisely how to react. He wasn't able to access any voicemail message, so he tried to open it via keypad! That only made the package start to BEEP!

So, he did what anyone in his situation would do — he called the mother-effing bomb squad!!!

Tiger Woods & Lindsey Vonn: Is Their Relationship Just A PR Stunt?!?

tiger woods and lindsey vonn

Since Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn's relationship is stirring up lots of gossip, it would only be right for the new lovebirds to play along with all the hype, right?!?

So because they publicly pushed their union on us by sharing some gag-worthy cute pics on their Facebooks, we're beginning to think that their relationship could absolutely be “a carefully crafted public relations move.”

MTV Responds To A&F's Anti-Sitch Campaign

mtv-situation-abercrombie-and-fitch-offer-pr-stunt.jpg

MTV is calling out Abercrombie & Fitch for publicly offering The Situation money to not wear their clothes.

A rep for the network said:

"It's a clever PR stunt and we'd love to work with them on other ways they can leverage Jersey Shore to reach the largest youth audience on television."

We're not so sure we'd call it a "clever" move when they previously sold "The Fitchuation" t-shirts and are still selling "GTL" tees.

To further prove our point, A&F's stock dropped nearly 10% on Wednesday. Yeah buddy!

What do U think? Is Abercrombie being hypocritical???

Belle Gray Boutique Robbery Wasn't A PR Stunt, Claims Lisa Rinna

lisa rinna claims belle gray robbery was not a pr stunt

Lisa Rinna is firing back at the allegations that the robbery of her Sherman Oaks store Belle Gray was a PR stunt.

As you may recall, Rinna and her husband Harry Hamlin were being interviewed on The Today Show Tuesday morning promoting their reality show and books when the robbery went down.

The recently reduced lips of Lisa flapped to Extra:

"That's the funniest and sickest thing I've ever heard, but now I've dealt with the internet long enough for the last year that I know how sick it can be."

Oh come on! Even these two famewhores have to admit it was a little suspicious.
