:lol: why you get worked up about this? Is gimmick used in a 'phoney product' kind of way here? Apparantly it's not phoney.

A gimmick is not a phoney product. A gimmick is something entirely or almost entirely useless. What possible use could this serve???

Maybe a compressed cylinder of welsh air with enough to fill a small chamber in which you could sleep for a couple of hours. That might not be a gimmick, but this shit?!?!

gim∑mick ( P ) Pronunciation Key (gmk)
n.
A device employed to cheat, deceive, or trick, especially a mechanism for the secret and dishonest control of gambling apparatus.More to the point, in what way is it a gimmick ? It does what it says on the can.

A useless novelty yes, but folk buy them all the time. Just so long as they know what they're geting.

As I said, a semantic discussion about the word 'gimmick'. :D

I heard about this last night. The guy behind it was being interviewed on Radio 2. He was keen to point out the authenticity of the air and promised a photograph with each bottle from when and where the bottle was sealed. WOW!! He said Welsh people living abroad can house the bottle in a nice cabinet and it would become an interesting topic of convesation. Sure. Like "Hey, Bryn, why the fuck did you spend £24 on a bottle of air!!". The idea is to not open the bottle and instead, simply put it on display. Oh, the £24 includes postage and packing to anywhere in the world. He also boasted of the fine presentation case the bottle comes in. WOW again!

And finally, to expand the business, they plan to bottle Welsh water from lakes, rivers and ponds of the buyers choice. WOW!

Why didn't I think of this. A fool and their money are easily parted.

Shouldn't the article say "Plaid Cymru" and not "Prime Cymru"?

Think there's a market for rainwater from the tropical rainforests? £2 per 500ml bottle, add £1 for shipping and handling.

Or £5 if you want it in a fancy glass bottle that looks tribal/tropical/native but is actually manufactured in China.

I can provide people with London Airô. Bottled in the finest slopes of the South Eastern suburbs of the aforementioned city. As well as possessing the full body of London, it also contains shades of Kent and Surrey. Can be yours for a mere £25 (p+p £300)...come and get it...supply limited!
