Silver fish hand catch: the domain’s gone already

July 15, 2010 One Comment

Having enjoyed the genius that is the Old Spice social media / YouTube campaign, I idly wondered how quickly someone would grab the silverfishhandcatch.com domain - apparently very quickly.

The link to the video below was tweeted by @oldspice at about 8am UK time. Silverfishhandcatch.com was registered at 7.30am - so about 2.30pm UK time, or a mere 6.5 hours later.
