The Long Overdue Death of Ed Hardy

ed_hardy--300x300

Speaking of famous deaths, we’ve been tracking the rise, saturation, douche pollution, and eventual decline of the worst and most garish of Douche offenders, Ed Hardy. And no, I do not mean the actual Ed Hardy (pictured here). I mean the brand. Created by this guy.

Now we cheer as this overpriced tatt/t-shirt hybrid monstrosity recedes, finally, into the past. Whereas once Ed Hardy and Christian Audiger fought over douchal profits, they now go their separate ways. A cultural blight akin to the 1917 influenza outbreak, Smallpox, and Hitler, slowly meets its demise.

I can’t help but feel our work here at HCwDB has done good for the universe when the New York Post writes an article about the douchification of Ed Hardy. Sure, a link or credit to HCwDB would be nice when articles read like I wrote them. But I’ve long since given up hoping for credit from fellow writers. Apparently if it’s live performance it’s yours forever, but if it’s on the internet, anyone can repeat it as their own! Them’s the rules of the internet age.

But lets be clear about this.

No, DListed and Yahoo, Jon Gosselin did not kill Ed Hardy. HCwDB, and the regs who brought the mock for so many years, did. There, I said it. I take pride in my life’s work, and all of your contributions to the cultural shift.

Purchased a 10pk Ed Hardy BBQ lighters at Big Lots for $1.19. Set up for a decade as I see it.

.

Also comforting is the gentle reminder that this high flying waste of materials is now relegated to bargain bin obscurity like cheap Polo knock-offs at TJ Maxx

.

However, I never understood this website’s distaste for Russell Brand. I’ve liked his shtick since “Saving Sarah Marshall” and find him spot on and enjoyably loquacious.

.

Watch him destroy the uptight, left spewing talking heads (exception: Katty Kay) on Morning Joe. Mika Brzezinski alomst shits herself from the sexual tension like a suburban housewife that’s never orgasmed using The Rabbit© for the first time

Really good stuff

^ agree re. Brand. He’s witty and unflappable.

he asked Katey Perry for divorce via text…just a tad tacky, ya think?

despite being a douchey template, Russ does crack me up

That was one fucking rad surfing video, Son. Brand is a dirty, fake-pirate, Brit-bag douche.

one small victory.

So…can we kill the real Ed Hardy? What does our legal counsel say to this?

MOCK HAS PREVAILED!

Yes I think the death knell for Ed Hardy doucheaccountrements has been sounded…just taking a long time for the final tits up of the whole thing.

Let’s sound the death knell for the fresh outta prison posing, tatted up, pajama and NY Yankee hat tilt Wally World posers. No more refrigerator repairman ass cleavage reveals. I’m putting my investments in tattoo removal. Too bad taint cannot be removed too. Or not. Taint is like a scarlet letter. Keep away.

Yep. You da man, Boss.
