Sony removed its alliwantforxmasisapsp.com flog, but the company (and the marketing geniuses at Zipatoni) won’t be able to live it down forever. The slightly disturbing site, UK Resistance, saved the fake blog’s front page for posterity.
Why? Because as a fella named Cmdr Zorg explains on the site, “When all the posts get deleted and the site gets closed because it’s just too embarrassing to carry on having it on the internet, a recent back-up of the page will be located here. It’s simply too good to let fade away.”
This goof will probably have as little effect on Sony sales as its buggy machines. But still, the mood can’t be bright at HQ. Imagine what would have happened had the Internet been around during the launch of New Coke.
