I remember someone posting the pictures of the Nina Ricci perfume bottle against the Twilight "perfume" bottle over in the Twilight thread a little while back. Well Nina Ricci's biting back!

What's even funnier is the Twihards are are all like, "OMG so they can, like, copy an apple now?" and "OMG she's just jelus that Twilight makes so much more money than her!!!" and so on. Some of the funniest examples are here (http://twilightguide.com/tg/2009/01/16/nina-ricci-to-sue-makers-of-twilight/).

There's a big fat irony there because, thanks to some of my anti-Twilight stuff on Cafepress (yeah, I got bored one night), I'm privy to their Twilight emails (damn tagging). Anyone making Twilight merchandise on Cafepress are no longer able to use an apple in their images. Any apply. Of any kind. Anywhere in the image. No apples. And they're not allowed to make journals of any kind with Twilight stuff on it, with or without apples. So I'm guessing another piece of shill is in the works for Twilight regarding some kind of journal with Blue Steel on the cover.

So, yeah. Do these guys know that The Beatles and Steve Jobs already have claims on the apple? Maybe someone should send them that memo, along with the OED definition of copyright infringement to Hot Topic.

I didn't know about the apple wars.

There are a couple of articles on The Beatles/Steve Jobs thing. The whole clash of the Apples has been going on for years, or so I've read.

Twlight fans make me snort. They get worked up about anything.

This almost borders zealotry, doesn't it? Or fanaticism. Kinda scary.

I read the comments on the OP's link. I feel so much dumber now for having read that. My brain is actually now in pain.

I have some Advil if you think that'll help. Or this nice big bottle of tequila.

Yeah. A bottle of tequila will help. Just smack it right between my eyes.

Someday, we, too, could have fans like these.

Sites like that remind me of why I love AW so much ...

Twilight has a perfume?

I enjoy the books, but seriously, a perfume? Essence of paper pulp, perhaps? Merchandise really does run away with itself, rediculous. That bottle though is erm, well, questionable. How on earth did the designers think they'd get away with plagiarising that design?

I'm surprised there was never a DaVinci Code fragrance...

There is.

Every time I get the runs.

It has a perfume and every other possible material item you could conjure up... I've seen things that weren't even mentioned in the book used to inspire souvenirs like a "Cullen Crest" key chain. When did they have a CREST? How could a 100-year-old family even have a crest? C'mon now. It's just sick. And yes, that perfume is a blatant rip-off and they deserve to be called out on it.

Really though, I don't forsee this doing anything good. Almost every time anything becomes popular retailers and such literally milk it for all its worth. The public I think will just get sick of her faster this way.

Ok I clicked the linky and I do see where Ricci would be upset.
