As of right now, some unfortunate social media people at Febreze are about 8% complete with their "Febreze Thank-a-Thon." That's a little over 80,000 "thank yous," "thanks," and even "dankas" that have been uttered by the team. The first 80,000 took about two hours, so we're predicting a long night for these guys.
Why on Earth is this happening? Well, Febreze recently topped 1 million "likes" on Facebook, and they decided to say thanks by saying thanks...to all of them.
Here's what they said on Friday:

Febreze definitely isn't the first company to put on a show for Facebook fans - just last month Kraft debuted a barbershop quartet called "Likeapella" which sang their thanks to fans for liking a certain post. But 1 million "thank yous," a process that's sure to take at least 24 hours, is a little above and beyond.
UPDATE: They've just switched out "thankers" to five people holding Mexican and Spanish flags chanting "Gracias." They're also doing the wave. it appears this is a truly international event.[h/t Mashable]
