Amazon's Newest Promotion for its Emmy-nominated Comedy The wonderful Mrs. Maisel who redeemed the awards at Los Angelos to mirror the 1959 venue, proved so popular that the police temporarily arrested her on Thursday had to close. According to a local ABC branch.
It turns out that offering gasoline at 30 cents a gallon in a state where it regularly costs nearly $ 4, can cause a stir. Customers flocked to grab the deal, leading to traffic delays that prompted Santa Monica police to intervene. Several officers arrived at a local gas station to temporarily suspend transport and appear somewhat ridiculous beside all the ads and advertisements from Pink The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel . The department warned on Twitter this afternoon before the backup, and the campaign resumed shortly thereafter.
Gizmodo turned to Amazon for the incident and did not receive an immediate response, although I suspect that the company is not complaining too much about the incident. After all, this intervention by the police has sparked a lot of free press for the Emmy leader in the final weeks of the campaigning season. It also distracts from the other news that Amazon is virally spreading today: the company's 100% human and by no means scary "FC Ambassador" accounts.
Other one-day "Maisel Day" deals (due to the lack of police reports, I assume that people are getting neater)) Includes movie tickets for 51 Cents, manicures for 2 USD and cupcakes for a quarter.
With the comedy for a whopping 20 Emmys this year – the second after the decidedly less funny Game of Thrones – Amazon has doubled the advertising campaign for the show by the next month of awards. Earlier this year, the e-commerce giant sent a bright pink Carnegie Deli food truck to New York City to sell snacks dedicated to the show. Another June food stunt led Amazon to team up with Postmates to offer a menu pack that included some of Midge Maisel's favorites.
