I think that this indeed a great way to connect with their audience.
However, I found their "Terms of Service" page very intimidating, and definitely not very friendly.

I'm also interested in seeing how Sharpie will deal with graffiti artists. Will they post their images/comments, or moderate at them out?

Graffiti artists are welcome to submit, with the caveat that they are not using their art in a negative or harmful way, or to deface property. In fact, coming soon is a post about a gallery in L.A. doing a Sharpie show featuring graffiti artists. Sharpie definitely supports graffiti as an artform, just not using it to hurt, harm or deface stuff.

This is a great example of a company latching on to the existing online buzz (this is a good thing). If you're a company that has people already talking about you online, then you're unbelievably lucky! Join the party, make connections with your customers, and laugh all the way to the bank.

David - I LOVE Sharpie's. Even keep one in the car. They also have 'em so you can keep in on your key ring.

It's probably not terribly good for me, but I have been known to draw mehndi tattoos on my feet with a brown sharpie. Sharpies FTW!

You can order personalized Sharpies too. I got some to give out to clients and friends over the holidays. I've been stingy with the link, but here it is.

Glad to know there's more Sharpie obsessives out there.

I use Sharpies for wardrobe malfunctions -- particularly black Sharpies for black pants with bleach stains and my black suede boots that get all crudded up from these New England winters.

Next to lipstick Sharpies are a fashion diva's best pocket pal!
