How Cards Against Humanity Is Saving America One Marketing Scheme At A Time

It’s funny that the game called Cards AGAINST Humanity is actually SAVING humanity one marketing scheme at a time. Every holiday season this fowl mouthed card game presents its consumers with a thought provoking promotion and this year they trolled non other than Donnie Trump.

The people behind “the party game for horrible people”, bought land on the U.S.-Mexican border to help prevent Trump from creating his infamous wall. Along with this purchase, they had another holiday promotion on their website for $15 surprises sent to the consumers door.

Apparently this was the first of six days of gifts given to those who bought the promo.

“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans,” said Cards Against Humanity on its web site. “He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.”

This is the most progressive of their holiday promotions yet, although not the wackiest. In 2015 the company sold $50,000 worth of nothing on Black Friday. Literally those who purchased their promotion got a box of NOTHING. Then last year they raised $100,000 to dig a “Holiday Hole” to nowhere, because they could.

It’s only recently, with the change in presidency, that the company has started to get political. The opening line to their promotion is, “It’s 2017, and the government is being run by a toilet.” In March, they sent potatoes to a Senator because he wasn’t holding a town hall meeting.

In August they used money from a weed themed pack of cards for their game to support the legalization of marijuana. The people running this company are literally using happiness (in the form of their entertaining game) to help make America a better place.

Plus they have an answer for everything, and in Cards Against Humanity fashion as well. Would you expect otherwise? When asked to stick to card games and stay out of the political lane, their reply was, “Why don’t you stick to seeing how many Hot Wheels cars you can fit up your asshole?” Verbatim.

When asked if Cards Against Humanity was now being politically correct, their response was, “We’re just being regular correct.”

If this doesn’t resonate with you than you probably voted for Trump. But to see a booming company based on dirty thoughts, that has no obligation to do anything for others, literally buying a plot of land to help prevent a pointless wall of hatred and racism from being built, is inspiring. For those that spent $15 on an empty box, this is probably for you as well.

Their marketing style is genius and authentic, which is why people are so willing to drop some dough on something that could literally be nothing. In a world full of instant gratification and let downs, people are drawn to surprises in hope for something new and exciting. Something other companies should learn from, but probably won’t be successful in producing. This company was built on zero f*cks and that’s exactly where it’s staying.

It recognizes that we’re all trash people, but some are filled with stinkier garbage than others. Their need to combat “a toilet” gives hope back to humanity and we’re just here along for the ride. To those that sold out Cards Against Humanity’s promotion, we salute you. God bless America.
