The Simpsons Shop is now selling a collection of various sized iPods featuring one of three different custom engravings on the back including a ‘Bart Sk8’ logo, Homer saying D’Oh! and a ‘Homer Tested’ insignia. The available models include the iPod Classic in 160 or 80GB sizes, the iPod Nano in 8 or 4GB sizes, the iPod Shuffle in 2 or 1GB sizes and the iPod Touch in 32, 16 or 8GB sizes. Each iPod is limited to 2,000 pieces and is numbered on the back. You can also opt to have your name engraved on the back too, but keep in mind that could probably hinder any attempts to sell the player down the line.
The Simpsons-themed iPods appear to cost a bit more than the regular versions, which makes sense because of the engraving and licensing costs, but would it have been so hard to throw a couple episodes on the video capable models? Worst… marketing decision… ever.
