German toilet provider has Best. Domain. Ever.

A few of us attending the newdomains.org conference in Munich this week spotted what is possibly the most inadvertently funny domain name in the history of the internet.

We found this advertised in the men’s room at Oktoberfest:

ass-container.de

It would be funny enough merely seeing that domain on a poster in a public toilet, but what makes it perfect is that the company it advertised, ASS GmbH, is in the business of providing portable toilets for large events.

Mike Berkens of TheDomains has photographic evidence of the poster itself (I don’t usually take a camera to the toilet with me) but in the absence of that photo, here’s a capture from the firm’s site.

  2. The entire marketing campaign is ingenious. How could you ever forget a domain name like that? I could see this going viral for the pure fact that it contains the words “ass” and “container”. The only thing it is missing is a nice sham wow song to go with it.

    I am sure we will see something of that nature soon. Great write up, always fun to laugh a little at work.

    Not bad. However difficult to trump the domain of stationery provider “Pen Island”: http://www.penisland.com
