The Expert Trolls At Cards Against Humanity Bought Land On The US-Mexico Border to Mess With Trump In This Year’s Holiday Stunt
The holidays are upon us, and that means another wacky stunt from the team at Cards Against Humanity, an FML favorite.The company has been weirdly good at getting people to give them money in exchange for next to, or sometimes literally, nothing.
Here’s a brief breakdown of all their Black Friday stunts they’ve pulled:
- In 2013, CAH hosted an anti-sale during which they raised the price of their game by $5.
- In 2014, they replaced all their expansion packs with “Bullshit” for $6, then literally mailed the 30,000 customers who bought them received boxes of literal bull poop.
- In 2015, the company earned $70K by replacing their online store with a form to give CAH $5 and get nothing in return.
- In 2016,CAH held a campaign to dig a Holiday Hole, promising to livestream the digging of a giant hole in the ground for as long as people continued to make donations. They raised over $100K and then filled the hole back in later on in the week.
This year is no different. Just yesterday, they announced their big plan for 2017, and boy, is it a hefty one. This year, Cards Against Humanity is going to “save America.”
Their pitch is as follows:
It’s 2017, and the government is being run by a toilet. We have no choice: Cards Against Humanity is going to save America.
There’s no time for questions—now is the time to act. You give us $15, and we’ll send six America-saving surprises right to your doorstep. It will be fun, it will be weird, and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out.
So, you know the wall? The one that Trump has been going on about that would separate America from our friends in the south? Whether or not this wall will ever actually be built, it will never be fully complete. The seasoned and expert trolls at Cards Against Humanity just won’t allow it.
“Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. 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."
The holiday promotion has already sold out after people paid $15 to help the cause, but also to receive a series of six mystery gifts, the first of which is a map of the land along with a few other surprises. I guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to find out what weird and wacky surprises they have in store. For now, you can learn more about their valiant effort to troll the president in this promotional mockumentary they released on their website.
