Barber gives away free condoms - but customers point out there's a crucial flaw

Everyone loves a freebie, don’t they?

Those little mints you get with your bill, a particularly good find on FreeCycle – nothing beats the high of getting something you like or need for free.

Jake Gamez knows the power of a freebie. The 23-year-old barber, from Texas, recently started to give away free condoms to his customers.

As gestures go, it’s probably not to everyone’s taste but you have to admire Jake’s customer service and marketing skills.

It’s a just a shame that the condoms all had one crucial flaw.

Can you spot it?

Erm…

Yes, that’s a STAPLE piercing the condom to attach it to a business card, basically, rendering it completely useless.

Here’s a better look at Jake’s handiwork.

Did he realise his mistake?

Jake shared a photo of the condoms on his Twitter page with the caption: "Gotta include one of these with every card! You’re going to need it after I cut your hair…Trust me."  Lad!

It didn’t take long for people to spot what Jake had actually gone and done.

And they were quick to point out his mistake.

But was it actually an innocent mistake – or a cunning way to ensure the next generation of future customers?

Others certainly seemed to think so.

So if this was actually clever ploy, very well played, Jake.
