Argos Aliens want you to name their baby

26 June 2013

argos aliens You've seen the Argos Aliens who, basically, are Outnumbered with even colder, deader eyes. Now, they're reaching out of the television set and asking you to interact with them on Twitter.

At the ArgosAliens account, they spout limp nonsense and all the stuff you'd imagine a marketing drone to find cutesily amusing... but now, one of the aliens is pregnant and they want you to name the baby.

They announced the pointless news with this status: "Hello Earthlings! We'd love for you to #NameOurBaby. Tweet us your best suggestions with the # and we'll put our favourites to a vote. ^Mum"
So, of course, this is your chance to air all your Argos based problems through a competition where you probably won't win anything. Crowd-sourcing always works best when people hijack it for their own puerile needs!
Do your worst.
