Fliers offer reward for lost tiger [IMAGE]
A couple tipsters recently brought above flier to our attention.
No, there isn't really a tiger on the loose in Minneapolis. There are, however, very creative marketing folks wilding out around town, apparently.
A call to the phone number reveals that the flier is actually a advertisement for the Minnesota State Lottery, of all things.
"Hey, have you found our tiger? Can you hold onto him for like a week or so?" an answering machine-style recording of a man's voice says. "We're in Vegas, baby! Whoo! We got here thanks to the new Caesars Jackpot scratch game from the Minnesota Lottery, and you can too!"
So that's disappointing, but we'll give credit where it's due -- it's a damn clever ad campaign, and presumably really cheap, to boot.
