Kiss And Hello Kitty Announce Toilet Paper

Kiss teamed up with Japanese character Hello Kitty for the most unusual toilet paper ever printed.

Kiss And Hello Kitty Announce Toilet Paper
7
Just when you think Kiss couldn't stamp their brand on anything else, along comes Hello Kitty with an idea that will take fans to Detroit Rock S--tty. The product is an official Kiss toilet paper, with the popular Japanese character adorned with the band's famous black-and-white warpaint on each sheet. Pocket tissues with the same branding are also available, along with a range of plush toys with Kitty made up and ready to rock, according to Classic Rock. The commercial pairing began in 2011 when Gene Simmons announced a worldwide deal with Hello Kitty. The Kitty is Japanese company Sanrio's most recognisable character, and has a cult following who buy up anything printed with the feline, from purses and toasters to computer equipment. Yesterday, Kiss guitarist Paul Stanley spoke about file sharing and its effect on the music industry. "You can't share what you don't own," he said. But with their new toilet paper, it's probably best to ignore his advice and avoid sharing it even if you do own it.

    Jesus Christ...I honestly hate them so much I don't even feel like making a joke about sh*t...

    Someone, somewhere, is thrilled that he can now be one step closer to having the ultimate Kiss Mansion.

    Kids growing up today must think Kiss is an enterprise and not a band, and they'd be correct.

    What am I looking at. Legitimately, what the hell. I don't care if it's selling out, or something, or anything music related... FUCKIN' WHAT IS THIS. WHY. THAT'S A FUCKIN' STATEMENT. WHY.

    I see Hello Kitty and immediately think of the "Hello Titty" shirt Slash was wearing at his Vamcouver gig on Saturday.

    Hate them why? KISS have never hidden that their in music more for the money and they've been doing stuff like this for decades. Even with all the extra stuff around them they still have some decent music, not to mention some really good catchy party rock songs. KISS are one of the least hypocritical bands around and I'd respect them less if they said they turned down this opportunity.

    Cool, now I can pay $5 a roll to wipe my ass on a cartoon cat's face. Worst merchandise ever.

    Oh, so because they're open about it they it's totally cool that they go around doing this crap? Kiss are a total pisstake. And then Gene Simmons gets all ****ing whiney when the Hall of Fame doesn't think such a god damn disgrace of a band should be allowed in and it's just like "Piss off. Now."

    I can't stand a band who's gimmicks and merch get more attention than their music.

    I mean, boo to Kiss and all... but I think the Hello Kitties look pretty badass. Well, 'badass' by Hello Kitty standards, anyway.

    I wanna make a collage with pictures of Gene Simmons' jackassery over the years.

    Considering I already wipe my ass with Kiss' shitty music, it might be nice to physically do it as well.

    I can picture it. The Band sitting together, staring at this and going "... yeah I *see* it but I don't *remember* coming up with this shit, how high were we? I mean, Hello Kitty with KISS make-up on toilet paper, what the **** is that supposed to be?"
    BloodyPumpkins
    Ok... I was ok with the article, but you guys really needed to put a picture of Gene taking a dump? I'm appalled.

    I'd like to say something humorous about KISS being sh*t, but I think their new merch pretty much does that for me.

    I am going to say this is what I think about your product! *start wiping*

    No, that would be with Slash.

    Actually judging by the picture, they ain't on stage, they are taking a massive dump.

    exact same thing i thought. toilet paper is dangerous territory KISS. you're just asking for the whole world to wipe their asses with your music. or at least i will.

    Do you wanna know why the HoF hasn't inducted Kiss? Because they know that when they do there will be a KISS meets the RnRHoF doll set with each member and a little mini HoF. I can see it now...It'd have about as much use as this toilet paper...getting shit on

    How can you bitch about how the record industry is in ruins when you're releasing your own brand of toilet paper?

    I can't wait to wipe my Ass on Kiss as they have been wiping their butts on us for the past 40 odd yrs

    I like their music, but I really wouldn't mind wiping my arse with one of their faces.
