They sponsor movies too.

I saw my first Bionic Spotlights ad this morning. I think they were sponsoring one of those old TV shows from decades ago. It was on MeTV.

Like the Six Million Dollar Man kind of solar/battery/LCD device?

ULTRON Vacuums! or {insert quantifiable object here}

These are the new iterations on the old Timex/Acme/Vegematic ads. I swear, our current media culture stems from 1960's comic books.

It's all Stan Lee's fault!

not just on sports broadcasts. Mass marketing saturation! They'll move on to sunglasses, opps, done that; flashlights, no already done that; car windshield visors, nope been there done that...

Oh, well.

Maybe pillows?

Pillows...hmmm...this is actually a sinister plot to channel money to string-pullers.

Tactical. Like putting Bridal in front of items to seel at ridiculous mark up to women, tactical is the new mark up for men.

That tactical razor doesn't seem all that different from my lady bic shaver, just sayin'

Inspired by the goggles that protect our troops.

There’s really no helping anyone sucker enough to buy into that.
