Bubble Wrap Can Be… Funny?


I received the following email from one of my new suppliers at work and I just thought it was fabulous. I mean, it’s about bubble wrap. Bubble wrap! How can an email about bubble wrap be anything other than boring and dry? Well, have a read and see for yourself:

It is my pleasure to inform you that your PACKMEN Bubble Wrap is ready to be shipped.

You will be pleased to know that I personally supervised our production team of ninjas as they delicately moulded each bubble. Only the finest quality air from the Himalayan Mountains was harvested to fill each parcel of air bubble.

Your PACKMEN Bubble Wrap was then carried aloft to our packaging temple, where our white-gloved Oompa Loompas ensured it met our sky-high standards.

I could only smile as your order was collected by six fine horsemen from our production facility. The roar of 100 drummers drumming was deafening, as your PACKMEN Bubble Wrap was collected by our transport company.

We are thoroughly exhausted, but cannot wait to serve you again…

Now, if that’s not creativity, then I don’t know what is! I was so impressed! (Enough that I thought it deserved its very own blog post, apparently!)

So, what can we learn from the above email? Let’s see what Albert Einstein has to say:

  1. that was funny. but a little weird, re timing, i mean, as one of the “lost stories” i blogged about earlier is called “Bubble Wrap”, inspired by an odd conversation four years ago with a then-co-worker about another co-worker. sometimes timing is everything. ;)
