In what must be the most “out there” cosmetics campaign in recent years, someone in Singapore came up with a line of Lookin’ Good for Jesus cosmetics. The line included a “Virtuous vanilla” lip balm, which doesn’t sound too naughty but then the inuendo took over, and a “Get Tight with Christ” hand and body cream made it to the cosmetic counters. Let’s hope it doesn’t tingle.
The Catholics got upset and the company withdrew the products. If they had been in Latin America, they could have repackaged the whole line with a picture of heh-SOOS, some good looking guy with the same name as Jesus and they would have saved themselves the fuss.
