Alright, so we’re deep into a world wide economic recession, right? Does that stop mad merchants from coming up with new and innovative ways to part us from our money?
Of course not. “Patrick” is one of the most Googled names on the web, whether Tera or Danica. Plenty of Mac and PC users have Tera Patrick wallpaper or desktop backgrounds. What about less-than-girly Danica?
She merits a calendar. A $10 full color calendar. Sure, Tera Patrick probably has a dozen calendars, all in living color, revealing all of whatever it is men find attractive about her. But Danica is a different animal.
Danica Patrick drives Indy cars, expensive race cars, race cars that go really, really fast; faster than most guys say they can drive after they’ve hard a dozen tall cold ones (no, I’m not talking about Ann Coulter; puleeze) at a local bar.
So, if you’re collecting all things Patrick, and have your fill of Tera’s digital likeness (like you know someone who is built like that, looks like that, does like that), you’ll easily fork over $10 for the Official 2009 Danica Patrick Calendar for your Mac.
What do you get for your hard earned money? Photographs of Danica in action. See? It’s the same method used to sell Tera Patrick paraphernalia—action.
As everyone knows who knows anything about Indy car racing, it’s big business, a tough sport, the stakes are higher than the noise level—and Danica Patrick is hot. So a calendar featuring Danica in action should be more than about good looks.
Danica’s calendar runs for a full three years. It features week-at-a-glance daily scheduler, a to-do list manager, oh, and those luscious photos of Danica that change every month right on your Mac’s screen.
Lest you feel bad about salivating over your keyboard, you can click directly from the calendar to Danica’s official website, where you can choose your experience. Just like on Tera Patrick’s official web site (not an Office Friendly link, wear sunglasses, a beard, and a hat before viewing).
Danica’s official calendar isn’t all cheesecake and speed. It’s totally functional. The mouseover works and reveals events.
There’s a customizable countdown feature, and the comforting thought that you’re in league with a whole league of Patrick Watchers™ who meet secretly, have a secret handshake, a decoder ring, and are totally high on wishful thinking.
Look, we’re in the middle of an economic recession that is spreading throughout the world. Is it any wonder that some businesses will appeal to the more prurient interests of guys with an extra $10 and no prospects? Literally.
$10 isn’t much money unless you’re not eating three square meals a day. Since Mac users are usually more economically viable and educated than Windows PC users, maybe Mac folks can afford the frivolous expense of exposure to Don’t Even Think About It Land.
A $10 Danica Patrick calendar for your Mac. Get it while she’s hot.
