E for error or e-Marketing

On Friday 1st December 2006 a news story broke regarding the Threshers wine shop chain. Apparently in error 40% discount vouchers were available from their web site. This resulted in chaos at their high street stores as bargain hunters rushed to buy up bargains.

Was this a genuine error? or perhaps very effective viral marketing?
