Jake Gamez, of Fadeaway Barbershop in Beeville, Texas, was in news when he started to give out free condoms attached to his business cards.
He shared a picture of a condom attached to his card on Twitter, with the caption: “Gotta include one of these with every card! You’re going to need it after I cut your hair. Trust me.”

But, a closer look at it reveals a blunder by Mr Gamez. He had actually punched a staple right through the condom. It seriously hampered a genius marketing trick into a disaster.
Unfortunately, the mistake didn’t go unnoticed and people were quick to point it out. One person said: “You put holes through the condom Jake.”
“LMAOOOSKSKKSKDKKDKSKSK IM DEAD. THE FUCKINF STAPLE,” another calmly added.
Another added: “You out here with a vision of creating generational wealth….. great business plan”
Nevertheless, his mistake did give him some much-needed attention and it was evident after the image was retweeted almost 10,000 times. Looks like he eventually got what he wanted, not bad Mr Gamez.
