One of the blogs I’ve recently added to my blog roll is Joe Morin’s Travels and I noticed a post he made about some kind of marriage proposal during the Super Bowl he’s going to be promoting. Don’t worry ladies, Joe’s not the one doing the proposing. (800,000 women sigh relief)
What he’s doing, or promoting at least, is along the lines of the Million Dollar Home Page and the One Red Paperclip promotions where a site, or in this case, the My Super Proposal blog, is asking for donations big and small for a good cause. Except this viral marketing promotion is being used to finance a commercial for the Super Bowl in which a fellow named “JP” will propose marriage to his girlfriend. According to the blog the goal is to raise $2.5 million. That’s a very, very big goal but it looks like $73k has been raised so far.
