Heinz Loves Heinies: Man Tries To Use Heinz Coupon QR Code, Is Brought To Hardcore Porn Site

German man Daniel Korell, was just trying to cash in an old coupon QR code so he could design his own ketchup bottle when he was instead directed to a hardcore porn site. Take that bottle and shove it! (Sorry)

Korell let the giant ketchup company know via Facebook that its QR code “probably isn’t for minors,” and then proceeded to chastise Heinz for letting the coupon expire.

Heinz responded by immediately removing their association with the porn site and apologized; asking what they could do to improve the promotional campaigns in the future (um, isn’t that your job, Heinz? Get it together).

The company also promised Korell a bottle with his own design, as originally desired.

I am just kind of glad it happened to an adult man and not a minor, still not cool but better than a kid.
