Kogan announces K-Rudd TV with every T-shirt

Need somewhere to spend your stimulus money? Kogan Technologies has unveiled a cheeky yet shameless campaign aimed at your ill-gotten gain.

We're not going out on a limb when we say we think Kevin Rudd ("Krudd") would have been mocked as mercilessly at school as he is in his political life. And now his secret school-yard shame can be yours!

Simply buy one of the Kogan Kevin37 "High Definition Stimulus" T-shirts, which can be yours for only AU$900! Available in 100 per cent cotton and a fashionable "one-size-fits-all", they are the "must-have" accessory for your next Young Liberals meet.

And for a limited time it also comes with an LCD television! Named in honour of the t-shirt, the 37-inch 1366x768 Kevin37 screen will play all your Freeview favouritesQuestion Time, showing off in front of Chinese diplomats, The Chaser best-of... No news at this stage as to whether the high-definition tuner will play anything else, but the picture below should give you a clue.

Ruslan Kogan, founder and director of Kogan Technologies, pretty much said the timing of the deal was just a coincidence: "The government bonus is intended for local spending, which will in turn stimulate economic growth. The Kevin37 is designed specifically for this stimulus package."

And no, neither the television nor the T-shirt is a joke. They will be available in April. We think this is either the dumbest or the best marketing campaign ever. Smiley face with a wink.
