So, apparently some of these were promotions (Dave/Dove and Prongles - Cards Against Humanity promo), buuut that doesn't mean they still didn't throw their fair share of customers. There's almost something admirable in an off brand's stubborn attempt at fitting in with the rest of the products. Also, let's be real: those off brand cereals taste the exact same as their pricier counterparts.

Build-A-Bear's hastily-deleted tweet was just one of several brands caught in the act of turning one of the most deadly attacks on American soil into a chance to promote their #brand with #sales on Twitter. That doesn't even compare to these four though. Here's Intimacy Box, a lingerie company, who had the gumption to even get the date of the attack wrong:



CVS couldn't resist slapping their corporate logo on their sentimentality (via Seth Fiegerman):



Of course, what better way to think about and honor 9/11 than from a company that makes prosthetic fappable lady-bits:

The tweet in question? Here is a screencap of the quickly-deleted message, from Christina Coleman's twitter feed:

Of course, that's not what DiGiorno thought the hashtag was about, and in their attempt to stay on top of trends on Twitter threw this into the public eye without a care in the world. As you can see, DiGiorno has since apologized for their ignorance. Just another warning message to #Brands on #SocialMedia, right?
