Worldwide weird or viral marketing scam? Anal douches for rabbit lovers

Customers who bought a Fresh Whole Rabbit at Amazon also bought anal douches and micro g-strings. How to explain this curious phenomenon?

  • Only one person has so far bought a rabbit from Amazon and coincidentally ordered an anal douche with this delivery. If only one person is your statistical base, your results must of course be distorted (and the 13 comments on the page don’t sound like they come from people who really ordered the rabbit).
  • People are hacking/faking their purchases to achieve funny product recommendations.
  • Amazon is actively faking weird product recommendations which their marketing staff distribute among friends and bloggers to drive viral traffic to their site – meaning that I am now exactly doing what they wanted to achieve.

I kind of have the feeling that the latter applies.
