1. Cards Against Humanity’s PWNMeal
For PAX East 2014, Cards Against Humanity played a little prank on its booth attendees. The company created a fake extreme oatmeal brand and distributed thousands of packets of instant oatmeal to its patrons.
2. Sony Hand Sanitizer
At E3, Sony gave event attendees a Playstation-branded hand sanitizer. Patrons loved having a unique giveaway like this that could only be obtained at the event.
3. American Express Laptop Bags
