Heinz Is Desperate To Be Your Facebook Friend

Michael snapped this picture of a bottle of Heinz ketchup that just comes right out and asks you to become its friend. He writes, “Is Heinz that desperate now that they need to slap a HUGE ‘find us on facebook’ thing right on their iconic package label? This facebook thing is getting out of hand!” Sort of like URLs in 1997. Using the entire front label as a plea for Facebook friendship is a new and slightly frightening tactic, though.
