THIS IS A GREAT IDEA. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE SOME OF THESE POTATOES. THIS WE’RE ONLINE FROM L.A., WHERE ARE YOU FROM RIGHT NOW, WHERE ARE YOU AT? I’M IN SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO GUYS. LET’S GET INTO THIS, IT IS APRIL FOOL’S DAY IT’S NOT A APRIL FOOL’S DAY. YOU SENT A MESSAGE ON A POTATO TO PEOPLE? IT’S VERY REAL, NO JOKES. HI THIS CONVERSATION WITH MY BOSS, AND HE SAID THIS ISN’T FOR REAL, IT’S TOTALLY FOR REAL AND IT’S HILARIOUS. YOU GUYS WENT VERY VIRAL WHEN YOU SENT IT TO THE NBA PLAYERS, HERE’S THE SPUD YOU SENT TO KEVIN DURANT, WHOSE IDEA WAS IT TO SEND IT TO THE NBA PLAYERS? IT WAS MINE. I’M A BIG BASKETBALL FAN, AND YOU KNOW, THIS IS WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING, SO, I WANTED TO JUST SEE, MAYBE HEY, MAYBE SOME OF THE PLAYERS WOULD GET A KICK OUT OF THESE. I KNOW PLAYERS GET FAN MAIL, SO, I JUST WANTED TO TAKE A SHOT AT IT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. I DIDN’T HAVE ANY HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR IT, BUT AFTER A FEW PLAYERS STARTED POSTING IT BECAME VIRAL ACROSS THE SPORTS PUBLICATIONS. I LOVE HOW YOU SAY THIS IS YOUR JOB, YOU PRINT WORDS AND PICTURES ON AND POTATO. ONE OF THE PEOPLE WAS DIRK, HE ENJOYED IT. THAT’S THE ONE THAT SET IT OFF. HOW DOES IT WORK? HOW DO WE GET THE MESSAGE ON THE POTATO AND SEND IT OUT? YOU CAN GO ON OUR WEBSITE, RIGHT, AND YOU PICK YOUR POTATO PRODUCT AND OUR MOST POPULAR ONE IS THE POTATO PARCEL WHICH IS 130 CHARACTER LIMIT LIKE A TWEET ALMOST, YOU TYPE YOUR MESSAGE AND THEN YOU ENTER WHO YOU WANT IT TO SHIP IT TO AND WE’LL SHIP IT TO THAT PERSON ANONYMOUSLY OR NOT. YOU SAID 130 CHARACTERS, I’M GUESSING THERE WAS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, YOU COULDN’T GET 140 ON THERE, 110 WAS TOO MANY. WE HAVE TO FIT IT ON THE POTATO WITHOUT WRITING IT, 360 DEGREES AROUND, RIGHT? AND IN A PICTURE WHEN SOMEONE TAKES IT TO BE ABLE TO READ THE WHOLE THING, RIGHT? THERE’S SOME SCIENCE GOING INTO IT. WHERE IN THE WORLD DID YOU COME UP WITH THIS IDEA? SO, THIS BUSINESS I’VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH SINCE OCTOBER OF 2015, YOU KNOW, THERE’S, THERE’S A PICTURE OF SOME POTATOES ON REDDIT, IT COULD HAVE BEEN A FUNNIER IDEA TO HAVE POTATOES WITH WORDS ON IT. THE PICTURE ON REDDIT WAS A POTATO WITH STAMPS ON IT, LIKE IT WAS BEING SENT IN THE MAIL. I TOOK IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL, WITH MORE PERSONALIZATION WITH HOW MUCH DIGITAL MESS THERE IS WITH TEXTS PHONE CALLS AND E- MAILS, THIS IS A SIMPLE WAY TO SEND SOMEONE A MESSAGE, FOR EXAMPLE HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CONGRATULATIONS, GET WELL SOON, WE WERE FEATURED ON SHARK TANK LAST YEAR IN OCTOBER AND THAT’S KIND OF, THAT GAVE US A BIG PUSH AND THEN THIS LATEST KIND OF MARKETING CAMPAIGN WITH THE NBA PLAYERS, YOU KNOW KIND OF ADDED MORE TO IT. I ENJOY THE PHOTOGRAPHS ON IT. NOW, YOU’VE SENT ME A POTATO WITH MY FACE ON IT, IS THAT WHAT YOU SENT ME. I SENT YOU TWO CODY. YOU I GOT TWO POTATOES, I’LL SHOW THEM WHEN WE GET THEM. THE POST OFFICE HELD THEM, NO ONE WORKS WEEKENDS, I’LL SHOW THEM ON WEDNESDAY WHEN I COME BACK INTO THE STATION, BUT NOT ONE, TWO POTATOES ARE ON THE WAY. MAYBE LIKE WILLIE STEIN AND DEMARCOS COUSINS CAN BE THE NBA PLAYERS. WE SENT THEM TO THE SACRAMENTO KINGS, UNFORTUNATELY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY THOUGHT ABOUT IT OR IF THEY EVEN OPENED IT. WHO KNOWS? WE TRIED. I’M TEXTING RIGHT NOW, I’M GOING TO GET ON THIS AND FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED. YEAH. WE’LL TEXT AND FIND OUT. I’LL FIND OUT. TELL THE FOLKS AGAIN ON HOW TO FIND YOU ONLINE. POTATO PARCEL.COM IS OUR WEBSITE, WE’RE ON TWITTER FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM, YOU GUYS CAN FIND US THERE. THE INSTAGRAM IS HILARIOUS, I LOAF THE INSTAGRAM, EVERYBODY TAKES PICTURES, THE INSTAGRAM, IT’S ABOUT HOW HAPPY THE POTATO TAKES PICTURES. IT MAKES A GREAT WEDDING GIFT. WE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF WHACKY MESSAGES FOR INVITATIONS ASKING PEOPLE TO BE A BRIDESMAID AND TWO SALESMEN TRYING TO CATCH THE PROSPECT’S ATTENTION AND ASKING PEOPLE TO PROM, TO DATES, A BUNCH OF WHACKY STUFF, PEOPLE GET REALLY CREATIVE WITH IT AND THAT’S THE INTENDED USE, YOU KNOW. AND I’LL SEND YOU PICTURES
