I’ve already posted about my Orbitz bottle and experience with the failed soft drink (solid?) and I wasn’t going to touch on the subject again. That is, until I found this mail-away form for Orbitz hiding in a box of other junk.
This form was on the shelves of Shoppers Drug Mart in 1997. One side of the form advertises the “Orbitz Compilation CD” for only $5.99 (plus $2.50 shipping and handling), featuring 15 great tracks from treblecharger, Leah Androne, and Matthew Sweet. The only downside—you had to pay by cheque or money order. What, no PayPal?
The other side of the form is an opportunity. You could have won a trip to Blade Jam in Los Angeles with Team Rollerblade! Whaaaaaat!
I do applaud Orbitz for their somewhat early adoption of printing their URL on everything, but it makes me giggle that they include the “http://” part of the address every time.
While the contest for Blade Jam ended July 29, 1997, there is no deadline for the CD. Guess who’s dusting off their Sony CDman and jammin’ out to some treblecharger?!
Probably one of the tracks. Aw yeah! Rock ‘n’ roll!
Did you send away for the Orbitz CD? What are your thoughts? F Yeah the 90s!
