For the life of me, I cannot figure out why Indonesian knit company, Mua Mua, believes that we need voodoo dolls of our favorite fashion icons, political figures, and musicians.
At first glance, I found it to be a mildly humorous. I mean, maybe I could cast a wicked yet innocent spell on Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. I could convince her to allow me to take over the world’s largest fashion publication. Or maybe… I could use the voodoo dolls inspired by Lady Gaga and Katy Perry and get them to perform a private concert for me and the homies in my living room. But then I saw the Obama doll, and a flash my favorite “The Chapelle Show” episode ‘When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong’ entered my mind.
Some things are just done in bad taste. I mean, when has the President ever been that darn brown. I could violently type racist thoughts here, but I’ll just say that this was a somewhat funny idea that no one thought twice about.
