Win This Man a Threesome

Via Digg, This sounds kind of sketchy and gimmicky, but is too amusing to pass up:

So, here’s the story… I said to my girlfriend that any stupid website could get tons of hits, simply because people are bored all the time. She said that I was an idiot and couldn’t make a website that could get tons of hits if I wanted to. After a long argument (mostly centered around the fact that she called me an idiot) we made a bet.

If I could not make a website to get 2,000,000 hits, I would agree that I was an idiot; however, if I could make a website to get 2,000,000 hits, she would have a menage a trois (that’s a threesome to you non french-speakers) with me and another girl. I thought she was kidding at the time, but then she said she was so sure of herself, that she would even put it in writing. This of course is an ultra-binding contract.

The Internet never fails to deliver the bizarre and titillating, eh? If you support this man’s bid, go visit his site: www.helpwinmybet.com. Inventive URL there, eh? The URL www.winmeathreesome.com is available, and would have been a wiser choice. My initial impression of the framed My First Website Design he’s got going on is that he’s too goofy not to be legit.

At the moment he’s got 8182 hits. Let me make a couple of quick predictions: the sites’s going to get p0wned with traffic, and crash. His goofy little free counter will break, and though he’ll easily get 2 million hits, he may not be able to measure them with any degree of accuracy.

    He’s at over 100K now… and climbing. He has a sponsor, so bandwidth might not be an issue…

    Looks like a hoax to me, by the “sponser” and the dating service. It’s just too cute, too carefully done.

    It’s going up by about 100 hits/second now (unless the counter is also a hoax). Viral spread in action.

    You are right about that whole dating service thing–highly suspicious. Regardless, it’s fantastic viral marketing.

    I was talking to some friends about this, and we all agreed that if it’s legit, it was a pretty dumb bet on the girlfriend’s part.

    Making a bet that your boyfriend is stupid: either you lose the bet, or you prove to everyone that you chose a stupid boyfriend.

    Kind of a no-win situation.

    I’m sure this is designed to drive traffic to Metrodate — especially for the webmaster advertising services. I mean, wouldn’t he have Google ads? He could find a more delicate way to describe some of the prize and get around the filter.

    He has close to 1.7M hits now. It goes up by dozens when I refresh.

    Apparently this was on Attack of the Show and he won the bet. Now there’s a forum and people are voting for who the 3rd will be.

    I remember a very similar site was put up about 8 years ago – same premise (same picture even)… I believed that one, but this, I’m not so sure…

    Hello, we’re whats known as ‘lifestylers’ – just a bit of a suggestion to you if you win the bet and she doesnt …. let her pick the other woman … and be damn honored by how she is honoring her end of the bargain .. she’s definately got moxy .. You go girl !

    It’s fun to see all the old posts about the site, even if it hasn’t turned out quite the way I would have hoped. Unfortunately, people thought that the bet had been won, which it hadn’t. So traffic fell off a bit after that. But I noticed that people are still being referred from some of these original blogs like this one, so it’s good to see there is still support out there. Maybe I’ll win and maybe I won’t, but it’s been a blast either way. Cheers to all of you.

    Good read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was performing just a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch since I discovered it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!
