FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE NAKED
Nude Driving Incidents Continue Unabated. Blipshift Suggests Societal Pressure May be Our Only Hope.
Scarsdale, NY – October 10, 2012 – Since blipshift launched online earlier this year offering crowd-sourced limited edition t-shirts targeting the automotive enthusiast, the company had hoped to see a measureable reduction in the number of naked driving incidents reported in the popular media. Unfortunately, despite their increasing shirt sales, this has not been the case. Hay-Won Byun, blipshift’s Senior VP of Public Safety notes, “In our clinical trial, there was one incident of Randy Travis being arrested for driving naked prior to our company’s launch. Much to our disappointment, there have been a similar number of arrests of Randy Travis for driving naked since then, suggesting that our efforts at curbing naked driving are not meeting their potential.”
Traditional home remedies, such as shouting, “Dude, put some clothes on!” have proven ineffective. The blipshift team remains unbowed and believes that their new strategy being announced today will help. “Rather than depend on the naked driver to realize that he or she is both driving and naked, we believe that the friends, families and loved ones of naked drivers can assist. Social pressure and support groups may help where the path to self-cure has not. Therefore, beginning immediately, we intend to offer our customers the ability to purchase gift certificates
for our shirts,” said Joe Oh, a company founder whose parents wanted him to become a doctor. “They will be available in several denominations, $25 and up, to cover the full clinical spectrum of veho nudus.”
