|GoldenPalace.com, the online casino famous for outrageous eBay purchases, has acquired a water-stained piece of plaster from a Pittsburgh man's bathroom that bears a remarkable resemblance to the image of Jesus Christ. GoldenPalace.com spent $1,999.99 for the divine stain.|
June 11 was the fateful day that the image appeared to Jeffrey Rigo, 30, as he stepped out of the shower. He cut the plaster piece from his wall and put it up for auction on eBay under the name 'Shower Jesus'.
The 'Shower Jesus' eBay page received an enormous amount of attention from website visitors, which in turn sparked the attention of publicity connoisseurs GoldenPalace.com, who have changed the face of marketing with their innovative and unconventional advertising strategies.
'This water stain from the shower just fits right in with the other purchases we've made. For us, it's a no-brainer,' said Drew Black, a spokesman from the casino. 'The public is interested in these things, and we get the exposure.'
