George's Costanza's Million Dollar Iphone App is Actually Real

"Well it was more than a great idea, an iphone application that leads you by your GPS to the nearest acceptable toilet wherever you are in the world..." - Seinfeld

It was a funny joke for the Seinfeld reunion show,  to have George Costanza, the guy that can never catch a break, invent an app about one of his favorite things in the world, public toilets, make millions of dollars on it, and then lose it all in a ponzi scheme.  That story might not sound familiar to most of you guys, probably because most people don't realize that Seinfeld ever did a reunion show.  It's actually pretty funny!  Check it out HERE:

The ironic thing, is that very app that was only meant for a good laugh, is actually real!  Charmin made an app called "Sit or Squat" that does exactly as George's app did: it has a database of which toilets are good enough to sit on, and which ones you should probably avoid skin contact at all cost.

Don't believe me check it out here:

Anyone in the world can get the app and start rating the local toilets near them, and with everyone's help, we can make this world a better place, one toilet at a time.

What do you think?  Do you think this was a good marketing campaign for Charmin?  Leave a comment below.
