Groupon had the perfect response every time
There are so many strange products on the market these days. It makes you wonder whether the manufacturers really thought that the weird product would make them money because it was useful or because people would buy them as gag gifts.
One such product is the Banana Bunker, a plastic clamshell container made specifically to hold a single, typically-shaped banana. Everyone knows that the banana is the most phallic-shaped fruit, so this product makes it even more hilarious than it usually is.
When Groupon started selling the Banana Bunker at a discount, their Facebook followers submitted all kinds of hilarious questions about it just to troll them. Groupon responded wonderfully, answering each and every question with a well-thought out answer.
Lauren Escarche: I will never look at bananas the same again (covered or not).
Groupon: We feel the same way! After we were introduced to the Banana Bunker, any time we see an uncovered we’re anxious for its safety.
For Your Pleasure
Heather Jackson: Is this ribbed for the banana’s pleasure?
Groupon: That’s a complicated question, Heather. Bananas don’t exactly “feel” like we humans do, but our scientists estimate that they heavily enjoy the comfort of the Banana Bunker.
Goes Both Ways
Chris Dressner: What do you do if your banana curves the other way?
Groupon: Good news – the Bunker is omni-directional!
