Martini / Mini Taxi: Takemehome Machine

Martini asked us to highlight the fact that they care about their customers and encourage responsible drinking among clubbers. That's why we made Martini and Mini Taxi co-promotion. We set up special Martini TAKEMEHOME machine in clubs. It measures your blood alcohol content and if it exceeds certain limit you receive 30% discount on Taxi Mini.

well this would simply work because customers would want to bag 30% discount

"encourage responsible drinking"??! by giving discount if you drink more? No way!

i thought the same but then
1) they don't want consumers, not in any case, to drink less
2) even when they say Responsible Drinking, they mean when you drink more, let a taxi drive you home, and not that you should drink less
3) everyone would want 30% discount, so consumers would not mind drinking a little more to bag the discount, that means more selling, as a client that's the first thing you would want
4) it's kind of honest too with a message that says drink but go home safe

The 30% discount is a no no.

I disagree.
IMO the 30% makes it even stronger and even more plausible for people to take part in this.
