We should have all seen this coming: the wacky, weird wave of Carmegeddon-themed promotions and shopportunities. They run the gamut from good (all Madison locations are offering a buy four sale pieces, get the fifth one free event -- get it, four oh five?; free yoga at YogaWorks) to merely exploitative (a Craigslist ad for $100 weaves that starts out, "Girl, is it worth going all the way to LA to get your hair done this weekend?") to the downright inexplicable and creepy (a couple soliciting a single girl for a dope-fueled 3-way). Check out the oddballs that Curbed rounded up; to see some actually shoppable promotions, check out our Dealfeeds.
