[BBC] Kanye West-inspired currency 'to launch soon' - Page 10

post #91 of 129
Count me out...

I can understand a celebrity endorsing a product, but when they go in and smear their name-branding feces on what often turns out to be a mediocre product at best, all in the name of "I'm a celebrity therefore my name on the label means more than letting a product speak for itself", I cannot support that. Let's be honest, if products like Skinny Girl Margaritas or other celebrity-branded Cool New Trends did not have the celebrity name on it, they would fail due to being inferior products.

You just made my point. Beats, while a decent brand, are far too expensive. Dre's name is what drives the price up. It's like charging $25 for a basic fast food burger simply because it's a "Seth Rogen Burger."

I was looking at them in the store the other day and they cost as much as my Sennheiser HD650s. That's pretty appalling.

At least Sennheiser has 70 years of family owned German engineering behind it...
