Drunk Shopping text service knows its target market, presents you with quirky things to purchase during Saturdays at 2am

Drunk Shopping is a free text service that serves you entertainment on Saturday nights when you’ve been partaking  in a bit of drinking.

By texting “heyyyyyyy” to the number 551-333-7865, you’ll have signed up for a texting service that will only text you on Saturday night at 2am in your area. These text messages will be sent to you and show you odd things to buy, like a knife throwing set or a piano rug. It should be noted that you are not required to buy any of these products.

Drunk shopping will text you products to buy

The website is as straightforward as you’d imagine someone would be if they had had a few drinks themselves. The designer who interacts with you is informal in all of his texts and how he presents himself. The service that you get with each text message is free of charge, other than the standard messaging fees from your service. You check out the messages that are sent to you and interact with the messages that follow.

When you send your text message to the number, they’ll ask who they’re talking to. When you give your name, the one whose texting you lets you the sort of things they’ll send you pictures of, like a 3D printer that doubles as a cooler, or a set of throwing knives. After that, you’ll let the service know what time zone you’re in. That will be the final set of messages you’ll get, before 2am on Saturday in your time zone.

When you do receive that message at 2am, regardless if you’ve been drinking or not, you’ll get a picture of what you could be the new owner of. There will be a small interaction with the text, attempting to convince you that this is what you need in your life. Whether you agree with this or not, you’ll get a link of where you can pick this up.

These messages can be unsubscribed from at any time by texting in “Stop” to the number. When that happens you’ll be removed from the list. To apply for the service, text “Heyyyyyyy” to 551-333-7865 to start. Those on the fence can go to the website for further details.
