Wasted advertising dollars

As El 3atal and I were eating some Pringles (you know, once you pop you can't stop is SO true for us), I noticed the advertising on the top for the new Pringle's minis. The only catch here is the fact the it clearly states they are "Available in the US only." Wasted money on packages sent to Jordan, hunh? I had to grab a shot of it, for your enjoyment.

Happy minis!

I think they just didn't work out the logistics for exporting yet. However this accomplishes couple of things:
1) Raise interest elsewhere in the world because "you just can't get it" .. yet. So people want to get it
2) When they print those, it's less expensive to print one for ALL instead of customizing it for each country. Therefore it's actually costing them less to do this.

So what do you think? Still consider it "wasted"?
