I think the meme is perfect.  Its a fucking annoying nerd who got in before you taunting you with the knowledge that if you only had your money in bitcoins you would be better off.  You just want to kick him in the teeth.  But you can only be mad at your self because you know hes right.

Imagine you are standing alone right in front of the goal of the other team and some idiot from the other team throws the ball right into your hands.

I have been in strategic corporate communications for two decades and if last week you would have asked me as a PR-guy what the best thing would be to happen to Bitcoin to show people what advantages Bitcoin has, I would probably have answered "the first country to start confiscating people's savings." I have to admit I could not have imagined that this could happen so fast.

This is just one rare great opportunity to trigger interest in Bitcoin. Just spread the meme 'Bitcoin user not affected'. People are talking about this everywhere and realise, that what happens in Cyprus can happen in their own country everywhere and anytime and that when it happens, it will be done without any notice and without any chance to withdraw their funds beforehand.

It is a point where you don't have to go through all the difficulties trying to explain crypto-currency alltogether, it is just enough to mention that the only people who escaped this plunder are the ones who keep their wealth in unseizable and unconfiscatable currency, namely Bitcoin. That alone will do to make people go "Wait, what!?" and go out to try to find out more.

So spread the word in any discussion with friends and workmates and plaster the comment-sections of news-sites reporting about this or on your favorite precious metals-forum or wherever.

I am reposting this image from the other thread on Cyprus, credits go out to whoever made it.



So carpe diem and spread the word!

Joe



Well done Joe. I logged in to post the Cyprus incident, but your already on the case. I couldn't have put it better myself, so credit to you. I think significant history in the making for Bitcoin. And another chink in the armour and erosion of faith for the conventional financial system. Bitcoin has some genuine strengths it can demonstrate to the wider audience under this circumstance. So, spread the word people. Bitcoin is going to surpass $1000 bucks faster than we thought

you might be able to make that pesky mortgage payment.  Good luck on ya!".  

It spans all ages.  


hahahaha there are not many people in under 25 lucky enough to have mortgages in my country.


Ok... I should have thought outside the box for you....

- your parents cant make their mortgage payment?
- you can't make your student loan payment?
- you can't make your car/apartment rent payment?

Get it?  Just because you might be under 25 years old in an affected country doesnt mean you rub salt in their wounds.

Also, being "unaffected" isn't really anyone's goal. My dead great grandmother was not affected by the Cyprus robbery either.

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Like my dead great-grandmother never got affected by the Fukushima desaster because she never lived in Japan and at another time alltogether.

And therefore, it is probably no Japanese person's "goal" to be "unaffected" by the meltdown.

So neither people in Japan nor on Cyprus (they still cannot access their bank accounts as of now untill maybe sometime next week) should have any worries since neither your nor my great grandmother were affected by their problems.

Your logic is unbeatable and it looks like it is a solution for any problem of anyone living anywhere in this world right now.

What a pity that noone on this planet has seen your solution yet, but I bet it's time will come! Wink

Thanks for all the contributions and respect for the creativity all around! This is awesome, excellent, hilarious and at the same time some of the best guerilla marketing ever seen. Thousand of new Bitcoin users in Spain are self speaking.

Now that it turns ou the haircut _will_ happen (16% off everything above 100k, that includes retirement savings accounts and the money saved up to pay the kid's university and so on) we can use that meme in all it's different expressions and visualisations even further.

I run a little bar in Berlin that does quite a good job at promoting Bitcoin and bringing it nearer to a lot of people.

I would love to blow up and color-print out all of the images posted here and hang them up at the walls of our place. I would also print leaflets explaining what these pictures are about and that unconfiscatable money _obviously_ is a good idea nowadays.

I would call this something like "the first exhibition of grassroots art by members of the decentralised Bitcoin community" or so and I would of course credit any forum member who contributed on the bottom of each printout.

So here's my questions:

Do you think that would be a good idea?
Would you mind me using your image?

HAVE YOU GOT ANY MORE TO GIVE? Smiley

Think so too.

Had printed myself a t-shirt with it today, wearing it right now. Do I remember correctly that this is Boromir?

Amazing how many people around here get it without further explanation and start laughing.

Sounds like a great idea, I'm not sure about the copyright on some of the images I used but other than that anything I post is GNU unless otherwise stated. :-)

How much do ads cost on Youtube?

Maybe we could pledge to add this 4s video as an ad targeting Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Ireland.
Actually, we could put 2 memes, the one of the irritating geek, then this one One Does Not Simply...

What do you think?

It would be particularly interesting if you can pay incrementally (the more you pay, more views you get, but you can start small).

With a translated text of course, which complicates things. Spanish is "Uno no entra simplemente caminando a Mordor", literally "One does not enter simply walking into Mordor", and we'd have to remove the verb "entra" from that place, ruining the entire construct.

Well, translating is less important for now. Bitcoins is still not that user friendly. People that can't read English would likely have a hard time learning enough about Bitcoin.

And plus, you can't translate memes. Wink

I was thinking of the following: the ad starts with the geek meme "Government steals bank deposits... Bitcoin User Not Affected". Then, the One Does Not Simply Confiscate Bitcoins meme. Both narrated in English. Then, if the user keeps watching, we concatenate the we use coins video - this one could come with subtitles.
