Royal Wedding Tat Watch – Wills And Kate MasksMarch 9, 2011
And the tat just keeps on coming…
Yesterday I was in Canary Wharf, that little part of East London, which prides itself on being shiny, classy and sophisticated. Some may call it sterile and dull; I couldn’t possibly comment. Anyway, I was in the shopping centre and on passing a card shop saw this in the window:
You’d better believe it, ladies and gentlemen. You can now get your own mask of Wills or Kate to show your support on the big day. I’m sure the royal couple have been shielded from most of this nonsense (or maybe their staff are building a collection, so they can have a laugh once they’re on honeymoon), but I can’t imagine a more disconcerting sight than seeing a thousand faces looking exactly like you lining the route as you make your way to or from the church in your royal coach. It’s a bit like John Malkovich being everywhere in Being John Malkovich, or the Window Licker video by Aphex Twin where every person featured has the (truly scary) face of the main man.
Coming soon: royal wigs in the style of Wills and Kate, royal large teeth and coloured contact lenses at a store near you.
