We all love freebies? Don’t we? Whether they are in the form of little mints at the grocery store or a piece of your favourite chocolate on purchasing household items and much more. The point is that nothing can beat the excitement of getting something you like or need when you get it for free. Jake Gamez knows the power of a freebie. The 23-year-old barber, from Texas, recently started to give away free condoms to his customers.
As gestures go, it’s probably not to everyone’s taste but you have to admire Jake’s customer service and marketing skills.

Jake took to social networking site Twitter to announce the good news. Jake wrote: Gotta include one of these with every card! You’re going to need it after I cut your hair. Trust me!, as reported by Mirror.Co.UK.
It was a well-played game by Jake and kudos to his customer service and marketing skills because no one in the world would have thought of coming up with a freebie idea as such as the one executed by Jake.
But sadly, for Jake, it didn’t pay well. Wondering why? Because of all of the condoms that Jake gave his customers as freebies had one crucial flaw. Have a look at the below picture.
In the picture, the packet of the condom is stapled to a visiting card. The staple is seen piercing the condom which is attached to a business card, thus making it of no use. Poor Jake took to Twitter to share the good news and in no time Twitter started to explode. It hardly took any effort for Twitterati to know where Jake had really f***** up! Quite literally!
Not only were Netizens quick to point out the mistake but some even lauded the young lad for his courageous effort. Here’s how netizens reacted:
LOL It’s going to really feel like “Skyn” when those staple holes open up, and make that condom a turtleneck.
