Launched: November 9, 2005

 

 

 


My name is Andres Kello, I'm 25 years old, I hate office jobs, water coolers, sucking up to the boss, and being strangled by a tie,
so I've quit my job and now I want to:

Break a World Record
Give away $2 Million to my supporters (details)
At least $1,000,000 to charity (details)
Become a MultiMillionaire, and...
Create the MOST publicized Ad in history!

And the best part is...

I've figured out how to do it ALL with one simple domain name!
 

 

DO YOU THINK I'M DELUSIONAL?

Think again.

Allow me to get all Matrix on you. You have two choices. You can either assume this idea is stupid and go back to your regularly-scheduled life, or you can learn about why this idea is so incredibly simple, unique, and bold that it has no other choice but to work. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. Do you want the blue pill or the red pill? You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill and you stay on this site and I show you how deep this concept really goes. Remember, all I am offering is the truth, nothing more.

Please choose one:

           

You've made a wise decision.

(and get ready to free your mind...)

 

Let me start by telling you that, at first, you're either going to love this idea or hate it. I don't really care which one it is because I can guarantee you this: whether you love it or hate it, this idea is going to grow on you. The more you think about it and the more you digest it, the more you're going to love it. Just make sure you read all the way through to the end so you fully understand this. I want to show everyone that SIMPLE, ORIGINAL, and BOLD ideas can still go far, especially on the most far-reaching communications medium we now all take for granted. Basically, I want to create the Internet's most expensive domain name. I want it to be so expensive that it makes it into the Guinness Book of World records, but not so expensive that no one will buy it. So I'm selling it for $1 more than the current record. Some people like to buy domains that are valuable. I like to buy a domain that has no value, and make it valuable...so valuable in fact that it becomes the most publicized Ad in history! Most people think that only short, cute, one-word domains are valuable. I say a domain name is as valuable as you MAKE it. And considering that a domain name serves as the door to your online presence, the most unique, mysterious, and expensive door can also be the most inviting, attracting an insurmountable number of visitors.

So let me cut to the chase. The record for Most Expensive Internet Domain Name remains unbroken and unchallenged since December 1, 1999 (a millennium in Internet years) and I would like to change that. Why? Because the sale of this record-breaking domain name has the potential for being one of the most highly publicized events in Internet history! Everyone loves to know the most expensive, the biggest, the longest, the highest, the most extravagant...in other words, the World Records. Better yet, everyone loves to witness a record being broken. This is why the Guinness Book of World Records is the world's BEST-SELLING copyrighted book. This attempt is no small feat. It is for people who think BIG...REALLY BIG...and I love to think BIG, which is why I have already officially registered this record attempt with Guinness. Don't think for a second that I'm kidding here, I've already registered over 120 relevant domain names that point to this one. I'm breaking this record. Period.

Some Quick Background Info

The current world record for the Most Expensive Internet Domain Name is business.com which was sold by Marc Ostrofsky for US$7,500,000 to the Californian business eCompanies.com. When people find this out, they are somewhat intrigued, but not enough to actually visit the site unless they are personally interested in business. This is because the domain name already gives away what the site's about. So most people just think "Hmm...cool." and flip the page.

The Shock Factor

Now just imagine if the domain name that broke that seemingly unbreakable record was TheRecordBreakingDomain.com The sheer SHOCK value of that self-describing record holder would magically force everyone's fingers to the nearest computer to type in that mysterious domain just to see where it led to and who was crazy enough to pay that much for it. Just imagine yourself browsing the Guinness Book of World Records and casually coming across the record for most expensive domain and seeing TheRecordBreakingDomain.com. You would sit there staring at the domain in utter puzzlement and disbelief asking yourself HOW and WHY with a growing itch just begging you to find out where it led to. See, the name makes people curious. Curiosity is a remarkable power that has a way of clinging on to people and making them act in irrational ways. That same curiosity leads to a desire for discovery...what is behind that domain name? And THAT'S where the real value is.

In fact, I can just hear your uncle at the next family get-together, "Hey, did you hear about this 25 year old guy that wants to sell this domain for $7.5 million and one just to break the record? He's even named it TheRecordBreakingDomain.com. He's absolutely crazy!" Maybe I am. But half the people at that get-together will flock to this domain just to "find out" what this is all about. And therein lies the brilliance of it all... the POWER of curiosity!

So What's In It For The Buyer?

This is the juiciest part. The second someone pays $7,500,001 for this domain, those 27 characters will be plastered all over the world in every News channel, newspaper, and magazine that matters. World Records make headlines, especially ones broken under unique and extraordinary circumstances. No one can deny that. This domain will instantly catch the eyes of millions of people all over the world. Much like most of you reading this, no one will understand WHY that domain broke the record, leading to the same desire for discovery described before. The buyer will instantly gain an unfathomable amount of publicity that, normally, money alone simply cannot buy. For this type of publicity, you need more than just cash...you need a BIG idea. And everyone knows that clever ideas can equal a lot of publicity on the internet (if you didn't know, then definitely read this article about The Million Dollar Home Page). The fact of the matter is, first-of-its-kind, BIG ideas with self-fulfilling publicity generate a lot of traffic on the internet, opening the door for a once-in-a-lifetime, unique marketing opportunity that goes straight to the heart of human nature! There is no Ad catchier than a record-breaking one!

You also have to keep in mind that this is no ordinary record. This record is particularly inviting thanks to the accessibility the Internet provides. I could break the record for most expensive House and put an Ad on the front lawn, but how many people would actually go and visit the house and see the Ad? On the other hand, all it takes to visit a domain name is an internet connection anywhere in the world. Anyone from anywhere can visit it! We're talking about hundreds of millions of eyeballs.

Priceless Publicity

Now consider just some of the potential publicity for this domain:

  • Free "advertising" virtually FOR EVER in the world's BEST-SELLING book via the spot dedicated in the Guinness Book of World Records for this entry. The cumulative shelf life of this type of advertisement added together is incalculable...every future yearly edition would feature this domain name for as long as it holds the record. That's over 4 million copies in over 100 countries and 37 languages EVERY YEAR featuring this domain!

  • Free "advertising" in one of the Internet's most popular websites at www.guinnessworldrecords.com for as long as the record holds.

  • Media hype surrounding this monumental event BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER the sale.

  • International News Channels, TV Shows, Talk Shows, News Reports all talking about this sale. This is a WORLD record and will therefore attract WORLDWIDE attention leading to GLOBAL exposure.

  • Every top Business School in the world using this domain as a marketing Case Study, plastering the domain name in business textbooks across the globe for years to come.

  • Internet Articles, Blogs, Chat Rooms, and Forums all discussing this event.

  • All this hype being recorded in the archives of internet search engines, forums, and blogs, leaving a permanent imprint on the history of the Internet.

  • An unimaginable amount of links leading to this domain name from Press Releases, News Sites, Blogs, Forums, and other high value sites that will continue to attract visitors for years to come.

  • And, to top it all off...every uncle across the globe telling their entire family about the craziness of the idea, the possibilities exemplified by this sale, the potential of the internet, and how curiosity is the ultimate marketing tool!

The Magic Touch

Now imagine if this domain name forwarded users to YOUR website or held an Ad for your latest product and you start to get a picture of how valuable this really is. Not to mention the countless people cheering for this sale to go through, as everyone likes to witness a world record being broken, making the buyer an instant IDOL! Add it all up and you have millions upon millions of visitors from all over the world flocking to this domain name year after year. The buyer will guarantee their seat in world history.

The Competition

In case you are worried this new record may not hold for long, let me remind you that the business.com domain name was purchased in 1999, during the height of the Internet Bubble, and a year BEFORE the Internet Bubble burst. Companies simply DO NOT spend anywhere near this amount of money for a domain name anymore. Don't believe me? Then check this out.

Companies spend MILLIONS of dollars for 30-second ads during the Super Bowl in the US, competing with other equally expensive ads all vying for the same piece of consumer attention and recall during the most competitive Ad season in the world. On the other hand, here is one WORLD-RECORD-BREAKING Ad, with absolutely ZERO competition, that can last a LIFETIME or more and reach countless people all over the world in a new, creative, and ingeniously-effective way! And 7.5 million dollars is NOT a lot of money...it's equivalent to a 90-second Super Bowl commercial. Normally, money alone can't buy this type of publicity and exposure. But, in this case, it can because the idea is so simple, so in-your-face, that it intrigues, leads, and delivers.

Last but not least...

To ensure only serious offers are considered, I have enlisted the services of Escrow.com to ensure the authenticity and legitimacy of the offer and domain name transfer for both the buyer and myself. Remember, there can only be ONE holder of this record-breaking domain name. That's what makes this so attractive.

Oh, and how exactly do I plan on actually finding an interested buyer? I'm going to let them find me. How? By offering a massive giveaway of $2 Million to get people from all walks of life and across the globe to support this record attempt and help give this domain name the traffic and pre-publicity it needs to actually catch the eyes and imagination of an interested buyer. I want to make everyone in the world dreams about this record being broken and cheering for it to happen! If you believe in this idea, don't doubt it for one second and help make history by Supporting the Feat! Anyone can help! Let's make it happen! If you don't believe in this idea or don't think this will break the record, then bookmark this site, forget about it for now, and just let it sink in. You'll be returning sooner than you think. Mark my words.

OK, so maybe this idea IS crazy...but it's SO crazy that you're already loving it and that's exactly why it's going to break the record. As a matter of fact, I can already hear your uncle at next years get-together, "I can't believe he actually sold it!" This time around, EVERYONE will be flocking to this domain. But who's going to make it happen? Who will be the next owner of The Record Breaking Domain and own the most publicized Ad in history?

Bidding season has begun. First come, first served...and thanks for taking the red pill, your sense of what's possible in this world will never be the same.
