I did. It's less than a buck per show!

I've been thinking about sponsoring him since he launched the duckies thing and seeing everyone gush over him today on mefi reminded me to go ahead and do it.

Where was the gushing?

I thought it might be you—that's tres cool.

Of course, previously was my contribution.

There was gushing here, and someone references the first thread on The Show where (almost) everyone becomes a convert.

Every other time I've seen it, the only entertainment was wondering if your man's giant eyes might actually fall out, but that was fairly funny - can't go wrong with man talking to his underpants, really.
posted by jack_mo at 6:28 PM on November 14, 2006 did you know that mefi loved it? Does one of those links reveal the donatification?
posted by cortex at 6:34 PM on November 14, 2006

No, as I said in the first comment, I was the one that donated.

No, I mean, how did disillusioned know that there was a $250 mefi donation, before he posted this thread? I'm just lost is all.

If you wiggle your mouse over the golden duck on the video page, it reveals all.

Cortex: When you buy a duckie to sponsor ze, you get to supply your own msg for it. If you mouse over the big duckie on ze's page for today, it has a message referring to metafilter.

Ah. I'm dense, is the problem. Thank you!
posted by cortex at 6:50 PM on November 14, 2006

Nah, dense is watching the video twice assuming there was some sort of fun submliminal duck-based sponsorship message being flashed up, before noticing the sodding massive gold duck wearing a fat gold chain right there on the page. Which is what I did.

Jack_mo, I just spat milk at that comment.

Well... I would've been if I was drinking milk.

while $250 has a 'plenty' ring to it, maybe in CPM terms being the big glittery duck advertiser sponsor on zefrank would ultimately pay for itself.

godaddy loves ze diggnation!

it had to switch from google cuz they said donations are against their policy. they must think ducks grow on trees.

I gave him $10 a little while ago - and I've rarely felt so good in my life. Who else wants a little sugar?
posted by Jofus at 4:55 AM on November 15, 2006

*requests sugar*
posted by cortex at 6:32 AM on November 15, 2006

Well, I don't need any sugar. But I could use some coke if you could score it.
