|The handwritten text reads “Dear Housemates, the handbasin where you wash your hands in, is used by me to piss in.”
And it’s advertising chocolate.
It’s a campaign linked to Sinterklaas, which is coming up on December 5, and it invites you to send a “Tony’s Chocolonely” chocolate letter with an honest poem. This combines two traditions – that of giving chocolate letters (ideally with the first lettter of the recipients name) and that of giving a gift disguised somehow with an accompanying poem. The poem should tease a little.
Apparently if you write brilliant honest poems you could win prizes, but I went to their website and I can’t quite see how I’m going to win anything.
I am going to write poems for my team – I’ve already bought the letters, just not from this company.
