UPDATE: OREGON, Ill. (WIFR)-- The Ogle County Zoning Office has confirmed the hole being dug just outside Oregon was in fact Cards Against Humanity's Holiday Hole. The dig raised over $100,000 and occurred over two days. After completing the dig the Zoning Office said C.A.H. filled the hole back in.
This isn’t the first time Cards Against Humanity has done something odd on Black Friday.
In the past, they have sold absolutely nothing for $5, raised the price on their games, and sold actual boxes of bull poop. They never say what they do with the money, but in the past have given it to their employees as bonuses.
OREGON, Ill. (WIFR)-- Cards Against Humanity a popular card game and company is always coming up with a new way to make us laugh and entertain us. This time it looks like they have chosen Oregon Illinois as their set. The company went live at midnight digging a hole, and that’s all it is.
According to their page after they dig it they have no further plans for it. This isn't the first time they've done something like this to see how much money people are willing to part with. Last year on Black Friday they sold nothing for five dollars a pop.
That's right you paid them five dollars and got nothing for it. In other years they have raised the price of their games instead of lowering it, and in 2013 you could buy a box of bull...you fill in the blank. I was told earlier by a neighbor of the lot CAH appear to be digging on in their live video, was in fact Cards Against Humanity's Holiday Hole. The plot she lives across from sold just a couple weeks ago for 25 thousand dollars to Hole Inc.
Equipment rolled in on Tuesday and they broke ground at midnight of Black Friday. Now 25 thousand dollars may seem like a lot of money for a joke, but as of right now they have raised around 66-thousand dollars and according to their website for donating, every time you give five dollars they add three seconds.
Right now their countdown has about 35 hours left they will be digging. Cards Against Humanity themselves has not confirmed this lot in Oregon is the Holiday Hole, but those who live around there say everything they know points to it being the Holiday Hole.
