Clever viral marketing campaign by Jump

Have a look at this very clever viral marketing campaign by local shopping portal website JUMP, an online, email based version of the game “Ching Chong Cha” (or Rock, Paper, Scissors”), but adapted to spread virally by challenging friends (and so spreading the JUMP brand across the net).
