Microsoft Cart Offers Free Bacon to Amazon Employees in the Hope of Luring Them Away

Microsoft wants to hire the best engineers for its Kinect project, but that's hard when there are so many tech companies in the Seattle area vying for prospective employees. It hired the ad agency Wexley School for Girls to find a solution. The agency did so: bacon. Wexley set up a food cart outside of Amazon.com's headquarters and invited workers there to have some bacon:

The promo made its debut today in the shadow of Amazon.com headquarters in South Lake Union, where a stream of bacon lovers braved the downpour for free strips of Swinery pepper bacon.

Also free were toppings, including spray cheese, Sriracha, peanut butter, maple syrup and chocolate sauce.

Serious candidates may even get a bacon air freshener.


I just looked outside the door and there's no cart from anyone in front of the Neatorama office. I feel a bit unloved.
