A 23-year-old barber stapled condoms to his business cards, but people were quick to point out a major flaw

Twitter @gamezjakeeThere’s something not quite right here.
  • A 23-year-old barber from Texas started handing out condoms along with his business cards.
  • But he was stapling the two items together – puncturing holes in the condoms.
  • He shared his business plan on Twitter, but users were quick to point out his mistake.

A 23-year-old barber from Texas thought he was on to something when he started attaching condoms to his business cards – but there was a major flaw.

On Sunday, Twitter user Jake Gamez shared photos of one of the cards for FadeAway Barbershop stapled to a condom, saying: “Gotta include one of these with every card! You’re going to need it after I cut your hair. Trust me.”

Twitter users, however, were quick to point out his mistake – by stapling the card to the condom, he had poked holes in them, rendering them useless.

“ummm are we just gonna ignore the staple in the middle of the condom orrr,” one user tweeted.

“But… the hole… from the staple…???” another wrote.

One simply wrote: “Wait.”

One Twitter user said, “This main ain’t dumb, he’s gonna be cutting their kids hair too and doubling his profits.”

Another asked whether somebody was going to tell him – but if he didn’t know in the beginning, he definitely does now.

A Twitter moment asked, “Were these free condoms a mistake or a cheeky business plan?”

Mistake or not, the tweet has certainly drawn attention to his business.

Gamez retweeted some of the responses to his intial tweet and shared a photo of some of his work to his new fans.

“Thank you all for being here,” he wrote. “Truly an honour.”
