How To Sell PS3s in a PS5 World (a bit more than just a metaphor)

Getting Paid

Hey there, marketing world—yeah, you with the PowerPoint slides and endless analytics. 

Grab a gin (Aviation, preferably), and let's chat. You see, most of you are overlooking the Deadpool of advertising: humor.

Seriously, it's like having a secret weapon and leaving it in the holster while you pelt your enemies with rubber bands.

And to prove the point I used it to sell a PS3—a fossil in the world of gaming—for $97 in under a week.

To put that into perspective, there are so many PS3s languishing on Facebook Marketplace, they're practically digital tumbleweeds. Meanwhile, the PS5 is out there like the Ryan Gosling of consoles, and everyone wants a piece.

So if your ads and email marketing campaigns are still stuck in the ‘blah’ zone, maybe it's time to inject some humor.

Because guess what?

Humor doesn't just break the ice; it breaks open wallets (and what self respecting business owner wouldn't want that?).

Behold my notorious AD that sold a PS3 in a World of PS5s:

Attention ANYONE who just hates doing household chores!

Are you tired of being forced to take out the trash or do the dishes after dinner?

Fear not, because the answer to all your problems is here. I'm talking about the greatest chore-eliminating gaming console to ever grace the earth - the PS3.

Now, you may be wondering why I'm selling this magnificent piece of technology.

Well, the truth is, my kids have decided they prefer breathing fresh air and playing outside with real flesh & blood humans who look remarkably the same size and age they are. (I know, weird right?)

But their loss is your gain because this PS3 is going to change your life!

How? Behold the many ways...

Consider this console your own personal genie in a bottle. You rub it (i.e. turn it on), and poof - and all thoughts of doing chores disappear. No more scrubbing toilets 🚽, no more folding laundry.

Just hours upon hours of pure gaming bliss.

It'll be your trusty sidekick that never leaves your side, and is always there to help you avoid doing things you don't want to do.

Think of it as a superhero with superpowers, but instead of fighting crime, it fights chores.

This console is also your own personal escape hatch. When life gets tough, when your boss is yelling at you, or when your kids won't stop crying, the PS3 will provide you with a little slice of heaven.

And the best part?

No one can follow you there. Its like a magic carpet ride that'll transport you to fantastical worlds where you're the hero and can forget about the mundane things in life.

And unlike a real carpet, you don't need to worry about vacuuming this one.

With this PS3 you'll become a racing champion and feel like you're driving a real racecar, leaving household chores far behind in the dust.

You can even become a survivor in a post-apocalyptic world and be so busy fighting off zombies ☠️ and searching for food, you won't even realize you haven't done laundry in weeks.

So, if you're ready to say goodbye to chores and hello to endless hours of gaming fun, then look no further.

This magnificent piece of chore-killing technology can be yours for the low, low price of only....

...wait for it...
