1-800-Flowers Teams up with Robin Thicke to Help “Get Her Back”

Alright fellas, if you’re looking to get your lady back, there’s probably one person you wouldn’t want to get advice from on ways to go about doing it. That would be…Robin Thicke!

We’ve all seen the PR nightmare and sheer embarrassment he’s gone through while publicly trying to get his ex-wife Paula back.

So why in the name of St. Valentine, would 1-800-FLOWERS.com team up with the world’s saddest-douche bag to have a promo with?!

Good question but they did! 1-800-FLOWERS.com is currently running a special where if you purchase either the Forever Love or Get Her Back bouquet, you receive a free digital download of Paula, Thicke’s tear-stained public plea for forgiveness. Just use the promo code THICKE at checkout!

Here’s a description for the “Forever Love” bouquet, which comes in 12 Stems for $64.99 or 18 Stems for $89.99:

Whether you’re looking to get the attention of a certain someone or letting her know she’s always in your heart, you can’t go wrong with a fresh bouquet of premium long-stem red roses. Inspired by the music of Robin Thicke, they’re hand-designed by our expert florists and arranged in a ruby red vase to help you express your feelings in the most romantic way possible.

If you really messed up, lay it on “Thicke” with the “Get Her Back” bouquet. Which will set you bacl $349.99:

Looking for a guaranteed way to get her back? Send our lush and luxurious bouquet of 100 romantic premium long-stem red roses! Inspired by Robin Thicke’s hit single, this spectacular rose arrangement is artistically hand-designed by our expert florists to help you express your feelings perfectly. We’re sure she’ll get the message.

This has to be one of the most pathetic, ill-advised cross-branding campaigns I have ever witnesses. If Thicke’s Twitter Q&A and album sales crashing down in flames are any indication of things to come, I guarantee you the marketing department will be getting their pink slips any day now. Go ahead and send them a condolence bouquet.

When will Thicke and his drama just wilt away?! He’s become a giant thorn in our side!

So here’s a public service announcement: Under no circumstances should you purchase any of this. Because if anything your love will not last forever and she’ll move on never looking back!!

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
