An unexpected friend


I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who gets random friend requests on Facebook.

In fact I know I'm not.

But I doubt anyone ever expected to get a friend request from their unborn child.

Which exactly how Olla Condoms chose to promote their product.

Pretty clever huh?

In essence they take your name and create a new profile using your name but with “Jr.” added to it.

You then receive a friend request from your "Jnr."

Once your curiosity is aroused (and I'm sure it would be) if you click through to the profile page you'll see an Olla Condoms ad.

Like I said pretty clever huh?

I suspect this sort of thing may be outside the rules of Facebook.

In fact it's probably been banned already.

But I've gotta admit I like this idea. A lot!
