It’s possible that Robin Thicke hasn’t hit rock bottom yet with his desperate public attempts to win back wife Paula Patton, but he’s close. Really close. Following poor sales for his new album Paula, Thicke has now partnered up with 1-800-FLOWERS and is offering up a free album download with a qualifying purchase.
Anyone who has glanced at the occasional entertainment news headline knows that things haven’t been going well for Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke. Thicke has had nothing but trouble over the past year, and it all started with his cringeworthy performance with Miley Cyrus at the MTV VMAs. Patton filed for separation back in February after rumors of adultery circulated, and Thicke’s career has been on a downward spiral.
There has been a lot of speculation over whether Thicke’s public attempts to win back his wife are genuine or if he is using the situation to boost album sales, but either way, the latest gimmick is worthy of the double facepalm. 1-800-FLOWERS is offering up a Robin Thicke-inspired flower bouquet called “Get Her Back.” View the details of the promotion here.

The item description for the “Get Her Back” bouquet is listed below:
Looking for a guaranteed way to get her back? Send our lush and luxurious bouquet of 100 romantic premium long-stem red roses! Inspired by Robin Thicke’s hit single, this spectacular rose arrangement is artistically hand-designed by our expert florists to help you express your feelings perfectly.
Typically, buying a woman a $350 bouquet of 100 long-stem roses (or even the cheaper 12-stem “Forever Love” bouquet) would help matters in the love department, but this just doesn’t seem to be quite appropriate. Maybe a Robin Thicke-inspired bouquet of flowers would have been seen as romantic a year ago, but now? Nothing says “I’m sorry” like flowers associated with the guy whose marriage may be falling apart because of a cheating scandal. And let’s not forget the fact that he is using it to make money.
