Win the Dem Presidential Primary Get Spider-Man Schwag
One of my early jobs was as a Special Assistant for Senator John Kerry. This was during his run for President around 2004. Tons of random items were sent including some comic book related items.
Around May of 2004 a box made it’s way through security filled with all kinds of Spider-Man goodies. Sent by Embassy Suites Hotels a letter was included:
Dear Senator Kerry,
For being this nation’s top Democrat, you’re a superhero in our minds!
Because you provided the inspiration for the latest in save-the-day accessories, we’ve enclosed an Embassy Suites Spider-Man 2 Web Pack just for you! Kids across America will be getting the Web Packs free this summer when they stay at Embassy Suites Hotels.
So pass on the Spider-Man 2 Web Pack and make a superhero out of someone who makes your life just a bit easier, or keep the Web Pack for yourself. It may just be this summer’s hottest accessory!
Me being the comic geek, of course I begged for the pack. Below are photos of the items included.
