I’m pretty sure that this was just created to drive more traffic to Zappos.com, an online clothing store. Well, it is working. I visited there for possibly the first and probably the last time. Anyway, they are selling this t-shirt for $50,00o. The t-shirt is pretty plain as you can see below and the message of the t-shirt tells all what they money really pays for: It only cost me $50,000 to stop my wife shopping at Zappos.com.
They are available in five different flavors, wife (black), husband (red), boyfriend (pink), girlfriend (blue) and well, it’s complicated (white).
There are a few comments by satisfied and unsatisfied customers below. Here is one woman who is not happy with her husbands purchase.
You know what really kills me? The betrayal. And I am not talking about from my soon to be ex-husband. Zappos how could you do this to me? I have spent so much money with your company and this is the thanks I get? The passion and joy that we have shared over the years… the business I’ve helped you to grow by raving about you to anyone who will listen… obviously it meant so much more to me than to you. Am I hurt? Am I mad? You better believe it! I won’t be calling your Customer Loyalty Team because they have been like family to me over the years and I don’t want to pull them in the middle of this “divorce” we are going through. I WILL be calling your legal team.
I would take it all with a grain of salt but here is the product information. I marked the parts I liked in bold.
- Buy this rare collector’s t-shirt and we’ll make sure your significant other never shops at Zappos.com again! When you purchase this limited edition t-shirt, we will permanently disable your significant other’s Zappos.com account for the rest of his/her life.
- Within 30 days of purchase, a Customer Loyalty Team (“CLT”) representative from Zappos.com will arrive to the location of your choosing in the United States to break the news in person to your significant other.
- The CLT rep will also be a shoulder to cry on for up to 1 hour (60
minutes) for your significant other. As time permits, the CLT rep will also be available to share tears of joy with you.
- The CLT rep will be happy to frolic in a field of daisies with you or do anything that is mutually agreed upon to not be morally or ethically objectionable.
- Should you exceed your 1-hour time limit, additional time is available, billable to your credit card or PayPal at $3.99/minute. The CLT rep may elect at his/her discretion to barter his/her time, such as in exchange for a home-cooked meal or for permission to borrow your cat for up to 24 hours provided that the feline is returned in the condition it was received.
- Certain restrictions and disclaimers apply:
- Disclaimer 1: Zappos.com, Inc. is not responsible or liable if your significant other creates or uses another account using a different email address. It is your responsibility to monitor how many email accounts your significant other creates or uses.
- Disclaimer 2: Due to the incredible lifetime benefit of this product and service, we are unable to honor our standard 365-day return policy. Our 365-day return policy is valid only if you are permanently divorced or separated within 365 days. Any separation of less than 15 days, “taking a break”, or equivalent does not count. Should you remarry, get back together, or “realize that you made a mistake and can’t live without him/her”, you are no longer eligible for a refund. If you have already been refunded, we will hunt you down for the $50,000 that you owe “the company”. Also, in the event you are eligible for a refund, please note that our free return shipping applies only to the t-shirt. (For example, please do not ship us your wife.)
- Disclaimer 3: Some people like to shop because they like nice things.
Some people like to shop because they want to be fashionable. And some people like to shop because they like to shop. We like all these people and will generally help them in any way possible. However, we can be bought for a price to make the shopping stop.
If you are worried about the cost don’t forget to factor in free overnight shipping on clothing.
