friday night hotness

o.k., so I haven't opened any of my mail for something like a month and decided that since I'd completely been sucked in by I Love the 90s I might as well open it and tear up all of the credit card offers. What I've noticed is the (return of?) the awesome marketing trend in which they include a pretend credit card with the offer.

Does this work? Ooh! Look at how fucking cool I'll look when my name is in the "YOUR NAME HERE" spot on that American Express Gold reward cards. So hot, I'm going to fill out the application right now and carry the fake card around in my wallet, hoping that people will see it whenever I take out cash or my ID.

I also wonder if the quality of the fake represents the interest of the credit card company in my money. Because there really is quite a range.


watching the VH1, I wonder what role these retrospective shows will have in nationalizing the mentality of the instantly passe trend.
