Gorilla Snot

Gorilla Snot

Umm, so yeah. Once again I have let lots of time go by since my last post. This is not because I have not been busy getting my creativity on, but I just have not been inspired to write about it. That said, I encountered something yesterday that really, really made me want to blog. I just had to share this with everyone. I was in the dollar discount store…wait I need to go off on a tangent about this for a second.

TANGENT: These stores that call themselves Dollar Stores but the prices range everywhere from $1.00, $2.50, $4.99, to $39.99, really work my nerves. Why call it a dollar store if the items don’t cost a dollar, SERIOUSLY?!!! I must give a shout out to the Dollar Tree, they are true to their word EVERYTHING is actually just a dollar, sometimes even 2 for a dollar…but I ain’t mad at that.

O.K. so I am in the “dollar” discount store searching the aisles for rose water (I have a really cool project that I am working on, but more on that in my next post), and I happened upon a product called Gorilla Snot!!! What tha…??? I could not believe it, so you KNOW I had to take a picture of it. What type of marketing strategy is this Shock & Awe?? And the graphic on the jar…WOW! Evidently, it is some sort of hair holding gel. I am not even sure if there was actual gorilla snot in it but the idea was just gross. Too funny!

That said, I have used a hair conditioner from the Dom. Republic called Baba de Caracol which translates to “snail spit.” Which doesn’t seem so bad compared to Gorilla Snot.

    Gorilla Snot?? This is what we’re reduced to??!! I’m so glad you took a photo, because I would never have believed it! Oh, and BTW — snail spit is sort of the same thing! LOL!

    I actually saw this in my Dominican beauty salon and had to do a double take. Not sure of the marketing goal, but it does cause you to look at least twice.
