They say that laughter is the best medicine, but humor in its numerous forms, can be pretty subjective depending on the context of the situation as well as the people involved. For folks who happen to reside in the Los Angeles area and are more often than not early adopters of new technology, then there is a chance that you would be part of the target audience for the prankster-artist who goes by the moniker “Plastic Jesus”. In fact, it was revealed that this Plastic Jesus entered several Best Buy store locations in LA, before placing his very own “gadget” on display beside actual products on sale, complete with a product description to boot.
The “device” in question? “Useless PlasticBox 1.2″ whose name is pretty much self explanatory, so if you were looking for something else out there, then trust me, you would be sorely disappointed. “Plastic Jesus” did include a label which resembled a genuine one from Best Buy, but if you were to take the time to read that label, you would realize that the Useless PlasticBox 1.2 was just “Another gadget that you don’t really need.” although it did sport a $99.99 price tag with no warranty. It seems that all of the fake gadgets have since been removed, but not before staying on Best Buy store shelves for five days or so.
Jon Sandler, Spokesman, Best Buy, shared, “A few stores were affected and the boxes were removed immediately. We are flattered that Best Buy is so top of mind for Mr. Plastic Jesus, and are happy that he presumably had the opportunity to witness our expert Blue Shirts and Geek Squad members in action during his visits. Hopefully he also had the chance to check out our fabulous back to school deals.”RELATED
