Stalking the Ricola Mystery Cougher

So it's a nice day so I decided to go find the mystery cougher. I't pretty interesting I should have done this last time, but certain people thought it was silly. Since I was free today I decided to check it out. I'm sure the marketing people at Ricola are very exicted that a BLOGGER is looking for their cougher. (Buzz, Buzz!)

I don't think I'll win though, there are about 12 people here and I'm sure one of them will tackle whomever shows up and starts coughing.

I felt like going up to them and saying, hey games theory, if we all decide to get together we will have a greater chance of winning. But Games theory doesn't take into account human greed totally. There is also the "I distrust you, I just met you, why should I throw in with you?" issue.

I like the idea of the campaign, at least the odds are a bit less than the lotto. And in a city with the Great Chinese New Year Treasure hunt you would think that there would be more people here. I think they are waiting for after lunch.

Here's a snap of a few of the people here for the Ricola marketing execs. You can get my permission to use if for ... 1 MILLION Dollars. Kidding. Maybe 100,000, Hell just write me, I'd love to add to an Adweek article about the campaign
