Celebrated Incarceration

Prison life enters marketing as demand for consumer rebellion rises

Implications - As the cultural attitude toward law breaking becomes more lax with specific regard to media and celebrity culture, trouble with the law and being sent to prison is being rebranded as acceptable, tasteful and even celebratory market-wide. This acceptance of shortcomings welcomes those on the sidelines of society back into relevancy and lowers the standard for acceptable behavior amidst younger generations. A fascination with incarceration signifies a true extension and fruition of the "bad boy" image that has been played up previously, but never idolized in such blatancy.
