Awkward QR Code Advertising

8th November 2011 - Posted by in category Fun Text Messaging Stuff, Text Message Marketing #FAIL

Our friend Tyler Ridings sent us the following QR code¬†advertisement that he snapped on his mobile phone. At first glance, I didn’t see the problem… then I thought about the awkward silence usually reserved for urinals being broken by the loud camera sound my QR code reader makes when I scan a QR code.

Then I imagined the glare most likely I would receive from the guy standing next to me doing his business after he hears the camera sound coming from my phone. Lets just say it would be a tense moment at the urinals.

Lesson of the day, put your QR codes in appropriate places.
