OBS has yet another new monthly feature that we have added to our growing roster called ‘Tacky Merchandise’. We scour the nets to find the tackiest, useless, or overrated merchandise out there, so you don’t have to. Some of you might actually like these items, and that’s quite alright. On the other hand, you just might get a good laugh out of it. Regardless, we hope you enjoy this edition.
SORRY WE’RE DEAD SIGN
This True Blood inspired sign, when you think about it, it not funny nor cute. Maybe, just maybe, it could be used for Halloween, but otherwise, it’s just plain tasteless. But who am I to say because if you wanted to get your hands on one, it’s Sold Out. Go figure.
ERIC NORTHMAN – GLOW IN THE DARK TRUE BLOOD SOAP
The bars are scented with the spooky sweet Dragon’s Blood fragrance. First of all, what exactly is Dragon Blood Scent? Secondly, I can see this being a perfect addition for any Alexander Skarsgard stalker collection, for this is the closest he’ll ever get to your bod. Any smart gal’s boyfriend wouldn’t want to use it if this were in her shower. So, I think it’s a no-no.
ERIC NORTHMAN CHARM
How do we know it’s Eric? There’s no face or any other distinguishing marks for that matter, besides the obvious blonde locks. Eric doesn’t dress this way either, he’s usually outfitted in a nice form fitting tank and some rocking jeans. This could be a nun that lost her habit, or someone in mourning for all we know. FAIL.
MOSAIC VAMPIRE STAKE
What can you actually use this for? Do you live in Transylvania? Even Transylvanians know there aren’t really any vampires. Ok, so it’s a conversation piece, but where will you display it? On your coffee table? I don’t know about you, but as far as a decorative item, it’s pushing it.
TRUE BLOOD CIGARETTE CASE
This is definitely an ironic item. Cigarettes cause cancer, which causes death, vampire’s are already dead, you get the picture. If you smoke you don’t need the constant reminder of your impending doom by looking at a bottle of sustenance for dead people, heck, have a vampire bite you instead. Then you can smoke and live forever.
LIPPY FANG CATNIP TOY
Last but not least, behold, the Lippy Fang catnip toy, just what every cat needs, otherwise he wouldn’t play with catnip, right? It will be gone so fast, growing dustballs and collecting tumbleweeds under your couch faster than you can say True Blood. Do yourself a favor, cut up an old sock thrown some catnip in, sew it up and call it a day. Trust me, your cat won’t know the difference.
Which are your favorite in being most tacky? Are there any mentioned that you actually like and would purchase?
