Pawngo #FAIL

Check out this twitter conversation regarding: Pawngo dropping 900 lbs (literally) of Butterfingers in Copley Square today making fun of Wes Welker?

Seriously? "email our pr firm"


Update 2/9/12:

The Real Loser Of SuperBowl 2012: Online Pawning Startup, Pawngo
In one of the worst marketing stunts in startup history, Pawngo dropped 900 pounds of Butterfinger candy bars in Boston ‘s Copley Square Tuesday with a gift tag in the form of a large placard that read, “Thank you Wes Welker.”
Included in the article is an apology:

To All of Boston, Wes Welker and Patriots Fans Across the Nation

I Apologize.


We got caught up in the moment, reacting to a suggestion that we thought would be funny, but we were wrong, and on behalf of everyone involved with Pawngo, I apologize.


Todd Hills, CEO-Founder
