Walmart Calls in the Lawyer-Mans in Black Friday Ad Fiasco

The infamous Sam's Club Wii mega-bundle ad has been rumor smashed into oblivion - we're actually pretty good about self-policing certain things out here in the Wild West - but that doesn't mean it's too late for Walmart's lawyer posse to ride in and help the situation.

TechCrunch got a C&D from the retailer's attorneys, demanding they take down the fake ad and, furthermore, help them find out who shooped it and sent it around. Um, no. Besides, they already linked to their source. TechCrunch is righteously touting the two-page threat and telling Walmart to suck it. I think a great resolution to all this would be for Walmart to go ahead and sell the Wii, the three Wiimotes, three Nunchuks, three games, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree for the super-fake price, so we can all flip them for about 60 percent more on Craigslist. There's your economic stimulus.


Just to be clear, so I don't get a nastygram from some poor bastard associate (that was redundant) chained to his desk on a Saturday, this will cost $425. You read it anywhere else that it's less, that is fake.
