Thanks for you patience

Sincerely,
Woot Staff



Just got finished talking with some staff members, and it turns out that orders SHOULD be processing now, but that due to the Daylight Savings time shift, the statistics are inaccurate/incorrect.

We are selling stuff, but any site that had an order between 1am and 2am has incorrect stats.

Sincerely,
Woot Staff

P.S If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to ping/PM me or email us at support@woot.com and we'll be glad to help you out.

I love that song, but for some reason...it makes me want to punch people when I hear it...! Thankfully, I haven't been drinking when I've heard this song...or else I would go batsh!t crazy...!

That's okay...there aren't any BARS behind the can, either.

The artist's bio is the best part.

He's not really known for artistic ability or originality. Unless you think drawing chibi animals and halftone swirls takes talent (some people do!).

Him getting picked in the recycling derby does have a pretty tasty irony. Though ironically a can in a trash basket is a new idea from him!

Also really dig the write-up. I still love that song, and it's various incarnations.



I think it needs to be a series, like the one with the girl, balloon, city and robot.

The next one can be "U Can".
(preparing for the escape)

The third one: something with the metals of recycling.

The last one: Maybe even recycle him into a baby robot part alluding to the next one in the series above.

Definitely has possibilities.

Just so we can this music video reckoning, I present the BEST parody vid. Turn closed captioning on for the lyrics.

Looks like it.

Congratulations on a new record low!

(Nah, just kidding ... but you're probably going to have to help us, Ramy.)

Based on the two hours of actual sales, several hours of non-sales due to server issues, some historic sales data I have, I'm estimating that the debut day sales is between 400 to 420.
