At least 150,000 people paid Cards Against Humanity $15 each for what the card game company calls “six America-saving surprises this December.”
The first surprise has already been revealed: Cards Against Humanity claims to have purchased a plot of vacant land on the U.S.-Mexico border so President Donald Trump can’t build his border wall.
The company announced the $15 promotion Tuesday and sold all 150,000 in nine hours.
The company also says it retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain “to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.”
Here’s the catch, though: There’s not yet any official proof that Cards Against Humanity has purchased any land, and the company hasn’t even said where exactly the land allegedly is.
So, there’s a possibility that the company earned $2.25 million just for saying some anti-Trump stuff on Twitter.
“The government is being run by a toilet,” the Cards Against Humanity tweet read. “We have no choice…we are going to save America and attempt to keep our brand relevant in 2017.
“Join in and for $15 we’ll send you six America-saving surprises this December: CardsAgainstHumanitySavesAmerica.com.”
Border wall status
Three weeks ago, eight prototypes for the border wall were revealed. Once the concrete sets on those prototypes, Customs and Border Protection will test the prototypes against breaching, digging and climbing equipment.
