Seriously, the people at Sanrio have gotten to the point that not only are they not even trying anymore, they are actively testing to see if there is anything that Hello Kitty fanatics won’t buy. Can you really come to any other conclusion when they are willing to release a product called “Who Pooped on My Toothbrush?” toothpaste in strawberry flavor?
I still don’t understand the fascination of Hello Kitty x Poo, but obviously Hello Kitty fanatics think it’s a good thing to brush their teeth with. What’s ultimately so sad is that no matter how hard Sanrio employees try, and no matter how ridiculous the products that they come up with, the fanatics will continue to see them as cute and buy them. Is it really any wonder that more and more are finding themselves in Hello Kitty Hell?
