The CEO of T-Mobile is so thirsty for attention on Twitter that he’s offering a trip to Mars if one of his tweets gets a million retweets before Oct. 11, science and reality be damned.
John Legere has been called the “profanity-spewing shock jock of corporate America.” His latest publicity stunt is reportedly an elaborate effort to celebrate reaching a milestone on Twitter.
A T-Mobile spokesperson told CNBC, “When [John Legere] hit 3 million [Twitter followers]–and Elon Musk basically said Mars travel is coming from SpaceX in just a few years for just $200k a person–John thought: ‘Let’s send someone to Mars!’”
But don’t worry, Legere has a backup plan. In the off chance that he’s unable to actually send you to Mars, you’ll instead receive $200,000, or maybe just a “zero gravity chair.” It all depends on how many RTs he actually gets.
You have to read the fine print, which is longer than your cellphone contract:
Here’s the part that really matters:
Legere has received just 6,350 RTs thus far.
