Nothing like hiding in plain sight ... we remember you guys from the turbulent '60's.
However, we have it on good accord that this is nothing more than another brilliant marketing scheme cooked up by none other than
Auburn University Club
guru and fellow Rabun Militia member Bucky Ayers
band of Merry Pranksters with the illustrious David Higdon of NASCAR marketing, and a couple of other “marketing
Ebay has noticed an upsurge in Tide
-related memorabilia, especially Tide-branded caps and die-cast replica cars. “Crimson Tide”
riding on the coattails of this popularity, for sure. (The human mind is a magnificent thing.)

"Daytona 500 saved by Tide detergent," said BusinessInsider.com. "Of course a sponsor saves the day."
Apparently, this item is now out of stock. Go figure.
Evidently, well-lubricated by a keg of Heineken, Bucky and friends were watching NASCAR track workers using Tide
(yes the same family brand
many consumers use to wash their dirty clothes), to clean the track during a two-hour delay in the Great American Race at Daytona.
Fox even had a shot of the product -- with its distinctive bullseye logo -- during the telecast and Bucky boisterously exclaimed,
[color=Salmon]“If we could somehow capitalize on this free millions of dollars in advertising...”
When the race resumed, Matt Kenseth took the checkered flag.
Tide is not currently a NASCAR or Daytona sponsor, said P&G spokeswoman Sarah Pasquinucci in a statement: "We were excited to see that Tide
helped save the race last night."
Somehow, by mouth-to-ear or, more likely, through Twitter, the word got out to start a run on Tide
, to attempt to garner MSM coverage, as TPTB
are looking for anything to keep people’s attention way from the real issues - gas prices, the economy, unemployment.
The stealing bit came about as a “spontaneous outburst” when the mere sudden movement of substantial amounts of Tide
did not attract enough
attention. Rumor has it that money changed hands before the “spontaneous” outbreak...
Our one question still remains: [color=Cyan]How does a thief wielding a shopping cart full of Tide outrun store employees and load the contraband into
a waiting getaway vehicle and make a clean getaway?
Instead of doughnuts, do the constables of police now get Tide
to look the other way?
