Unintentionally hilarious product design or subversive moral commentary? 3M is selling these cute self-adhesive hooks in Asia. Just take a look at 3M's colorful, friendly animal pals with their handy hooks to hang your stuff on.
Hmm... but those hooks are positioned rather, er... prominently, aren't they? That bear definitely has a reason to grin, you could say he's um... bursting to meet you.
But wait, there's more. If bears aren't your thing, 3M also has a frog, a cat and a monkey. Mix it up, why don't you?
And in case you're not sure what to do with such a big stiff hook, check out the serving suggestions on the top corner of each package: “follow me, hug me, kiss me.”
By the way, there's some innovative new technology in use here. The self-adhesive hooks feature 3M's new re-usable Command adhesive, which can keep sticking and sticking, again and again, and still come back for more. No, we're not making this up.
