Back in the day I had some truly tasteless New Kids on the Block memorabilia. Today, there isn't much of a boy band for teenyboppers to flip over, so it would seem they've taken a lusty liking for their favorite American Idol contestants. MTV compiled a list of the most ridiculous items targeting the AI obsessed on eBay.
My personal favorite is the Jason Castro earrings. The smirk, the dreadlocks, the dimples. They're so campy, I just can't get enough. Other crazy Castro items include the Jason Castro doll, the rubber wrist band Ã la "Live Strong", the dreamy Castro pillowcase, and the Castro license plate frame. But let's be honest, if you're old enough to drive a car, are you really going to put a Jason Castro license plate frame on it?
The tweens just LOVE little David Archuleta. There are Mrs. Archuleta T-shirts, a purse emblazoned with his image, more dolls, bumper stickers, night lights, and even return address labels. Return address labels? Alrighty then.
Someone got really creative when they designed a David Cook snowglobe. I admire the quality artisanship.
So if you're looking for that last minute, hard to buy for lady with a sense of humor, this Mother's Day, be sure to check out eBay. I'm sure there is a delicious vanilla scented Brooke White car air freshener out there somewhere.
