If there's one company guaranteed to do something off-the-wall for Black Friday, it's those pranksters at 'the party game for horrible people', Cards Against Humanity.
Previous stunts have included making imitation Pringles called Prongles and getting people to pay them five dollars for literally nothing.
This year, they've done a pretty amazing sale that includes some genuine bargains, as well as some things that will haunt your soul until you die. Like this:
Everything is 99% off, and a new deal appears every ten minutes [update: looks like all the deals have finished, except for the actual card game one].
Deals to be had for 99% off on the eye-meltingly-designed site include:
- A bust of Barack Obama
- A 4K TV for $34.99
- A red Ford Fiesta
- A coffin
- A gold dildo
- 500 pounds of beans
- A toilet shaped like a throne.
Someone actually bought all of those, including someone who apparently paid $999 for "the spirit of Black Friday" which seems to just be a red bodysuit (although profits go to a food bank, which is nice).
If you're wondering – like we did – whether this is all just made up for the lols, the FAQs section would suggest not:
Is this real?
Yes. All of these products are actually available for 99% off, and if you purchase something we will actually ship it to you.
But the deals seem too good to be true!
We’ve chosen to make them true. That’s the miracle of Black Friday.
Can the global financial system handle these deals?
Most economic indicators suggest “no.”
Surely you must be losing a lot of money on this promotion.
Oh dear yes. This is a financial catastrophe for our company.
