KISS........ and....... Hello Kitty. Ooooooookay. Guess Gene needs some more cash since Shannon left him.

Personally, I think this would be pretty cheesy. Commercialization at its crassest.

Well the first seal has been broken and here come the horsemen....

Nah. If everyone is happy with the deal, then so be it. I have to say I was pretty surprised to read this though.... But if Hello Kitty can have a licensed "fun stick" then I guess a deal with Kiss isn't too far fetched.

When did Hello Kitty go from a cute children's character to that girl that does outrageous things for attention?

KISS? Selling out? commercializing every aspect of their image?

Hello Kitty, trying to be both a beloved children's franchise while simultaneously appealing to ironic hipster chic sensibilities?

I DON'T BELIEVE IT!

The link I made was for the HK Tampons, I didn't even notice the text mentioned that there is also a douche. If you look at that entire list though. http://www.hellokittyuniverse.com/page/Indecent+Hello+Kitty+Products

you'll see they also make HK vibrators ("massagers").

The point is that both KISS and and Hello Kitty are complete merchandising whores who will put their names on anything, so the marriage of the two is really the most natural collaboration in the world

KISS kinda look like cats already, and if Hello Kitty can do visual-kei, it's not much of a stretch. Laughing
