I was reading the Boston Globe today, and I read an article discussing a new trend called “milk smashing” (also known as gallon smashing). Apparently, it involves people going into a grocery store, smashing a gallon of milk on the floor and jumping in the milk while someone films the entire thing to post online.
I don’t really get why this has become the cool thing to do, but who am I to judge. I did see that SmashingMilk.com is currently listed for sale on Sedo for the bargain basement price of $249. I don’t buy trendy domain names, so it’s not a name I’d want to buy, but if this really is a big thing, someone could probably make money on that investment.
This “milk smashing” trend seems to be happening all over the country. There are articles in publications in Denver, Buffalo, Philadelphia, and I am sure it’s happening elsewhere.
As with every trend, this one likely (hopefully) won’t last too long, so it’s a limited opportunity. Sort of like Tebowing and Planking.
The domain name was registered just this month by someone in California and it’s listed for sale on Sedo. I neither have any financial stake in a sale nor was I asked to promote this listing.
It’s called “milkkake”.
I would be more interested in watching the Grocery Manager beat the pidgeon crap out of the Milk Smasher.
It is called Stupidity!!
Like you, I keep my elephant ears for new trends or what happening around the world and the best one that is gaining very popular is talking about death and cafes are a good place to host them.
DeathCafes or deathcafe are the names.
Guess who got one of them and offers already pouring in.
Reg with 99cent code.
Who says hand reg is Stupid?
Interesting, this is kind of the Internet Milking craze going around. I have InternetMilking.com if anyone is interested. Real Cheap. 😉
This fad came out a few months back, and since every grocery store has cameras, it is going to get criminal real quick, so don’t see it lasting… all the good names, have already been flipped.
Flash mob now takes the silver medal in the dumb hall of fame.
I’d like to see a f/u video w/ the proud parents.
Don’t worry they will raise the price from $250 to $4800 like the owner of Pornstarswithoutmakeup.com and miss out on an easy sale.
Looks like someone bought it.
That was me selling it and someone bought it today for the $249 so thanks for the kind word.
I do still have available,
You need to donate the money to Elliot’s charity fund.
Thanks, I looked around his blog and didn’t see a donate button. Where is it?
Please, no need to donate anything to me at all.
I just checked if Milk Smashers dot com is available and noticed that it was registered few hours ago. Then read comments till the end and found out who is the owner 🙂
This new trend is called gallon smashing just saw it in the news paper
Maybe, but as you can see in the mainstream news sources I quoted, people are calling it milk smashing, too. Whatever the case is, someone bought the domain name for what is probably a good price assuming they can get a site built and drive traffic.
Was the guy who started this “a domainer” or he just he hated milk?!
In Canada we call it milk bag smashing. It isn’t quite as entertaining, takes longer and sometimes people join in…not to smash just to help you pick up the bags because they believe you dropped them.
Here is the situation I hate.
The Godaddy 60 day lock.
The buyer has chosen to wait for the lock to expire (43 days) instead of opening a Godaddy account and Pushing it into their account.
Who knows, by the time they get the domain the fad could be over.
Why not push the domain today and start collecting the rewards?
If the buyer is reading this I hope they change their mind.
I checked ‘Milk-Smashing dot com’ few hours ago is available and that it was registered few hours ago.
I just bought MilkSmashPrank dot com what do you think?
Probably a waste of $8 in my opinion.
Thanks, Go Daddy domain name appraisal MilkSmashPrank estimated value $70-$280
Good luck with your purchase.
I agree with Elliot,
Unless you are going to develop that name I would call your register and ask for a Grace delete and get your money back.
Thanks for answering
In my mother Kazakhstan the heads of goats are smashed on floor . Milks is from the breast and is necktar of love making
Russian Gallon Smashing Prank =)
I missed out buying the .com gallonsmashing by a few hours
Then everything got taken on the same day
I had .com milk smashing in my gd cart that changed my mind
Congrats to the seller wish I bought it when I had the chance
As if the milk industry wasn’t disgusting/cruel enough…then you have these idiots. What a waste of a commodity. I’m sure these are the same people that complain when prices go up.
@Gary Dell, I could not agree more. Of course when that happens they’ll just run to Daddy who will always bail them out. It’s the entitled generation way of doing things.
