Take off your blouse, babe, I need to charge my laptop!

May 14, 2008

bra-crop-120.jpgThis company keeps trying to design bras that do something extra. You may remember their chopstick bra or their shopping bag bra or their get-out-the-vote bra. The new designs never generate anything other than free publicity, which duh, I guess is the point.

So this time it’s a solar panel bra which can recharge your cell phone or iPod. Of course, the bra needs to be exposed to light in order to work, and a chick walking around outdoors in an exposed brassi√®re may have more serious problems than a dead phone battery.

And that’s not even to mention what happens when GUYS start walking around in giant man-bras to charge THEIR phones!

…in other news, an army of photovoltaic mannequins have taken over the city. They are easily recognizable by their green underwear. They seem to be under the leadership of an insane Japanese model who had decided to rid the world of “everyone who is not as beautiful as I am”.

Two of these chicks
Are colder than the other

Two of these models
Wear nylon hair

Can you guess which models
Are not really living

Or do even care?
