The Force Goes Overboard Edition
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my sporadic posts of increasingly bizarre Star Wars promotions. Mostly these are random products with Star Wars packaging and absolutely no tie-in to the movies.
This one really got me. No connection here. None. And then I considered that my bananas often have Minion stickers on them. But Minions eat bananas. I’ve never noticed Darth Vader slipping an apple slice through his mask.
There are apparently other fruit tie-ins not carried by my local supermarkets. (language warning)
On the right you can glimpse some metal Star Wars tins that hold cotton swabs. The tin is attractive and reusable. The cotton swabs front and center, however, are stored in disposable packaging. There is nothing Star Wars-y about them. I imagine a creature with ears the size of Yoda’s might harbor substantial ear wax, but still . . .
I can’t even . . .
Okay. This one at least capitalizes on the shape of the Death Star. I suppose this highly-overpriced infuser makes the perfect cup of Tauntaun tea.
Flameless Pillar Candle
I failed to take a photo of this at Bed, Bath & Beyond. These items are clearly “beyond.” I trolled the Internet for these images. I have to wonder if it wouldn’t have been better to create a shower head with Boss Nass spraying saliva, but what do I know?
More gems I spotted but failed to photograph at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Skin dry as a Tusken Raider’s? Rehydrate with this 2-litre droid humidifier!
Makes an image of the Blessed Mother on your toast look rather lame, doesn’t it?
I’m just scratching the surface here. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch didn’t make my top seven. And try Googling light saber chopsticks, Star Wars nutcracker, and Yoda tree topper. These items are the tip of a gigantic, Hoth-sized iceberg.
And, just for fun, here’s one I considered buying. Ladies and gentleman, I give to you, the Star Wars ugly Christmas sweater.
