Brand developer Comment Retail Services has signed a deal to bring Hello Kitty into the hands of UK punters by way of mobile phone content and branded electronics, reports licensing.biz. Hello Kitty is Japanese in origin, but has always been popular in the USA. In the UK the brand already adorns clothing and toys, but not much …
no contest - hello kitty is worse...
Don't see it taking off here like it does in Japan mind, what with in Japan the goal of girls and woman is to be cute and innocent like, where as in the UK it's to get blasted, vomit on your shoes and start a brawl in the streets at 2am.
Maybe they should make a hello kitty bludgen or hello kitty alchopops?
Now that Hello Kitty is a Japanese tourism Ambassador, would one be able to claim diplomatic immunity on the contents of a Hello Kitty branded laptop? Admittedly you'd therefore be ceding it to Japan but it's a small price to pay ;)
And Disney is much worse. Copyright in the US keeps getting extended lest a certain eunuch-voiced rodent enters the public domain.
Hello Kitty is merely EVIL. As an evil person myself I have carried a hello kitty wallet for some time now. Be warned in plenty of time, you not only cannot trust someone with HK merchandise, you must also never let them get close enough to eat your brains.
The great and mighty Kitty army is already assembled and ready to consume all life for the glory of somethingsomething.
but a few of my friends have lots of gear I believe even the Hellokitty BOB (battery operated boyfriend) allthough she never admitted it just blushed deeply when it was mentioned once. i came across it on a japanese export site jlist.com you can buy manga japanense food etc it was advertised as a back massager . i'll never be able to thing of hello kitty as evil due to a few personal memories of an ex-girlfriend and her kitty collection.
My wifeoid is obsessed with both HK and Webkinz. So much so that she has one room (the doom room shrine, I call it) devoted to both products. Anything Hello Kitty, she has; clothing, stickers, dolls, purses, wallets, a bicycle (adult sized), I mean we're talking hundreds of items that have pudgy, beady-eyed mouthless face. Should Ganz and the parent company ever get the idea to co-produce anything in webkinz world, we're doomed. Damn the socialists, the Chinese, the republicans, the liberals or the Islamic extremists, with their automatic weapons, suicide bombs and elite internet hit squads, we are all screwed.
The world will literally implode from the mass nausea of perceived "cuteness".
We must put aside our petty differences, like religion, political alignment, nationality, geography or race and band together to stop this creeping evil.
Some of you may scoff at this notion but I tell you I'm already seeing the scouting parties for evil armies of HK and Ganz. And based on how I've seen my wife react when she sees something she can't afford at the moment, I no longer fear hell. I fear Hello Kitty.
