Hi,

A huge thank you to everyone who responded to our Body Advertising email.

Most of you cottoned on to our April Fool but it was interesting to see how many people actually believed we wanted to brand people with our logo - does this give a taste of the future of capitalism?

For anyone that missed this, visit laptopsdirect.co.uk/bod…ing - make sure you have your sound turned up and are able to view YouTube.

95% of our customers thankfully realised it was a joke - some thought it was the best April Fools they had seen! However 4% of you were offended at our exploitation of the vulnerable and 1% wanted to offer us parts of their body!

Here are some of the positive comments we received:

[COLOR=blue][SIZE=1]Funny, one of the funniest April Fool's Day jokes I've seen, well done..!

Well done Laptops Direct. I passed this onto some friends, 3 of them are considering doing it! I did not have the heart to point out the date... Thumbs up from me! I love it...

[SIZE=1]Hi.
I am interested in having as many tattoos on me as you will pay for. What is the situation with multiple tattoos? and if I ever get them taken off do you get your money back?
Cheers

Hi
I'm worried I might be falling into an April fool! But if this is true I could well be interested, along with a friend of mine. If I'm not being daft and it's not an April fool, could you give anymore details. Not brave enough for the forehead. but arms wouldn't be so bad. Had been thinking of getting a tattoo of my daughter at some point anyway and never had a tattoo before, maybe could kill two birds with one stone though would have the personal tattoo tucked away on a shoulder etc so as not to interfere.

[/COLOR]Just to be clear - we haven't branded anyone (yet)!. We were inundated with emails, pictures and phone calls so a huge thanks to everyone who got in touch, it certainly made for a more entertaining Tuesday.

Tune in next April!
