Ship Your Enemies Glitter’s Founder Implores Buyers To Stop

The founder of Ship Your Enemies Glitter, Mathew Carpenter, posted on the Product Hunt website where he implored would be buyers not to buy his “horrible glitter product” because he was “sick of dealing with it.”

Hi guys, I’m the founder of this website. Please stop buying this horrible glitter product – I’m sick of dealing with it. Sincerely, Mat.

A user on the Product Hunt site named Zoe Landon replied to his message saying, “You have made your glitter-coated bed and I’m afraid you will have to lie in it.”

Another user, Shruti Gandhi, called it “brilliant” while another, Akshay Patel, called it “pure evil.”

Ha! This is pure evil. As someone who has said numerous times that I hate glitter this has me worried.

Product Hunt’s founder, Ryan Hoover, called Ship Your Enemies Glitter “the ultimate troll product.”

Hoover indicated in a post on his website that it looked like the website had been taken offline by an abundance of traffic, however, it was, “for better or worse,” back online.

looks like we killed the site, everyone.

for better or worse, the site’s back online folks.

The Ship Your Enemies Glitter website described what the company offers as it stated in big, bold letters across the homepage, “WE SEND GLITTER TO THE PEOPLE YOU HATE.” The website went onto explain that they “hate glitter” and that they send “glitter in envelopes” to people you hate, be it a neighbor, family member, or “Amy down the road.”

The cost of their service, which the company referred to as “only a few bucks for you” because “it’s Australian Dollars,” costs $9.99 AUD ($8.16 USD).

The product, which has gone viral, has caused the website selling it to receive a torrent of viral traffic, enough to crash the web-server hosting it. In an attempt to handle the large volume of traffic to his website, Carpenter tweeted at his web hosting company asking for an increase in resources because one of his websites was “going viral.”

A frequently asked questions (FAQ) section of the glitter mailbombing company’s website asked for assistance in a scenario in which the recipient of the product “got glitter in both eyeballs, is now blind & would like to file charges.” The company responded with “Heh.”

Business Insider reported that Carpenter seemed “ready to be done with it all” as he tweeted that the website was for sale.

The Independent reported that Rick Santorum was repeatedly glitter bombed during his presidential candidacy.

Is there anyone you’d like to glitter bomb?
