Offensive Or Not? Murray’s Pomade Features The Obamas
Nothing says ‘I Love My President’ like a tin of pomade. At least, that’s what the folks at Murray’s must have been thinking when they debuted the ‘Murray’s for Obama’ specialty tin, which is filled with their legendary hair pomade and conditioner. The orange-red can is stamped with a drawing of President and first Lady Obama rocking some pretty classic ‘fros. We totally love Murray’s—that s**t works, but we wonder if they took too much liberty with the Obamas likeness.
Well, whether it’s perceived as cool or too caricature-like, it is for a good cause. The collectors item sells online for up to $4 or $7 bucks a pop, depending on size and a portion of the proceeds goes to support charities. In the eighty-plus years the company has been around this is the first time they have created a custom product for a sitting president. So maybe it is a stylin’ honor. [Murrays]
