The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has no chill. It seems to think weed vapes and sex toys are “less-than-wholesome” in nature. I think they’re just prude.
Apparently, the Academy got wind of those goodie bags of fun that were said to be given to Oscars attendees. The gift bags would things like a $250 vibrator, $250 vapes, $1,900 vampire breast lift, $275 Swiss-made toilet paper and trips costing tens of thousands of dollars.
They say the best things in life are free.
However, this genius really comes from a company Distinctive Assets, not associated with the Academy. But, the Academy, with it’s already-immaculate reputation… is taking this sitch to the feds to dissociate from the promo stunt and prove it’s ~wholesome perfection~.
Here’s part of the lawsuit:
“Use of Academy’s trademarks not only infringes the Academy’s trademarks, but it is also likely to dilute the distinctiveness of the Academy’s famous trademarks and tarnish their goodwill.”
Loosen up, guys. Let your panties un-bunch and your guests will have a rocking time. The only thing I see wrong with this scenario is that celebs who can afford diamond-crusted vibes and vapes, endless botox and trips to Cannes would be getting these delights for free. In that case, yes, SMH.
