12 Inexplicable and Bizarre Celebrity-Branded Products
From Paris Hilton scrapbooking kits to Sylvester Stallone high protein puddings, there are some pretty weird celebrity-branded products out there in the world…
Last week, we learned that Katy Perry is turning into a Sim. While it kind of makes sense, at the same time, it’s pretty weird. So that got us thinking: What other wack-o celebrity-branded products are there out there? The answer will astound you. From Paris Hilton scrapbooking kits to Sylvester Stallone high protein pudding (whatever that is), here are the weirdest, most inexplicable celebrity-branded products we found.
1. David Lynch Coffee
Of course David Lynch would have his own coffee. He claims he drinks 20 cups of the stuff a day, so in 2008, he decided to make his own. Alas, it seems not to exist anymore; though really, what I want to know is whether a backwards-talking dwarf or a giant claiming that the owls are not what they seem showed up if you drank it.
2. Heidi Klum Candy
Wait, what? A food product fronted by a model? Is that even allowed (bad joke; don’t kill me for it)? Apparently it is. Heidi’s health-conscious candies come in three different varieties: Heidi’s Yogurt Dessert Cremes, Heidi’s Yogurt Fruit Cremes, and Heidi’s Fruit Flirtations. Does anyone know if they’re any good? Anyone?
3. Obama Chia Pet
I’m a little unclear whether this is officially sanctioned by the Obama Administration, but I assume that if it hasn’t been pulled off the market, it is (remember that incident with the Malia and Sasha Obama Beanie Babies?) Also, while we’re on the subject, there’s also a Washington Chia Pet and a Lincoln one. Just, y’know, so that we’re being equal opportunity with our Presidential Chia heads.
4. Paris Hilton Scrapbooking Kit
There seem to be fewer weird products created by female celebrities, largely because they tend to limit themselves to the predictable (and fairly standard) clothing and cosmetics (curse you, gender stereotypes!). However, there are a few anomalies. This is one of them. Who knew that Paris was so into scrapbooking?
5. Snooki Headphones
We know Snooki has a line of self-tanner. We expect Snooki to have a line of self-tanner, because she is so very orange all the time. However, we do not expect her to have a line of headphones… and yet she does. These are the iHip headphones, and she readily admits that they are tacky, just like she is. I suppose at least she’s honest about it? Oh, and there’s also an app for that. For real. It’s called “Snookify Me.” you can probably guess what it does.
6. “Ron de Jeremy” Rum
A lot of celebs dabble in booze. A bunch of them have vineyards, Marilyn Manson has a line of absinthe, and so on, so at first glance, a celebrity-themed rum doesn’t look that out of the ordinary. But hold on a second… who’s that on the label? Is that RON JEREMY? Oh good grief, it is. Apparently the rum isn’t terrible; however, a warning urging drinkers not to do anything Ron wouldn’t do seems a little off base, given that good ol’ Ron is… well, good ol’ Ron.
