The Whopper Air Freshener

whopper-air-freshener-1

Think of the Whopper Air Freshener as the ‘reverse freshener’. When most people buy these things to get the fast food smell out of the car, Burger King Brazil would like to help you do the opposite; this freshener smells just like the burger that inspired it. As crazy as it may sound, we’re convinced there’s a market for this. Considering things like Bacon Lube exist, it’s not much of a stretch of the imagination to conceive of hungry gluttons wanting their car to smell like one of the best tasting burgers on the market (yes, we said it).

Much as it would be great to buy this for yourself (or get it free, right? I mean, it’s not like someone would pay for this…), it appears to have been part of a publicity campaign where taxi drivers would hang it on their mirrors and pick up drunk clubgoers. The smell would of course overwhelm their already uninhibited senses and cause them to re-route their trip to the closest Burger King. Genius.

KFC Makes Nail Polish That Tastes Like Chicken

Their slogan is “Finger Lickin’ Good”, so it sort of makes sense, doesn’t it? See, as part of a promotional effort in Hong Kong, the local KFC office has apparently created nail polish that looks just like regular nail color, but happens to taste of delicious fried chicken. That way, well, you can spend your days looking entirely normal with your fingers in your mouth. They come in two flavours: Hot & Spicy, and Original Recipe. They were conceived and developed by McCormick, the spice company behind KFC’s secret spice and herb mix, and are allegedly completely safe to consume. The polishes are not being mass produced yet; the company is showing early prototypes off in promotional pics and asking fans to vote on which flavour they’d actually like to see being made. Whether it does ever make it into the wild, let alone stateside, is anyone’s guess.

Hear The Ocean? Pff, This Seashell Lets You Hear The Radio

Seashell-Radio

In an effort to celebrate 90 years of radio in Japan, and presumably to promote their own existence, Japanese radio station BayFM collected 100 Sazae Shells (also known as Turban shells) and outfitted them with radio equipment. So when you hold one of these up to your ear, as people seem to always do with seashells, you won’t hear the soothing sounds of the ocean but rather the soothing sounds of Justin Bieber or freaking Selena Gomez or some other equally not-irritating melody. They only made 100 of them, which they’re distributing through a raffle system where each winner gets to buy them for 3,980 yen (about $36). They appear to be fully functional, can be recharged through USB, and well, that’s it.
