    The idea of shaking someone’s dandruff into my food is really really awful. Even if it is just a reference.

  2. Kyle

    I do it to other people food all the time. . .

  3. andrew

    I agree that dandruff one is terrible. how did nobody stop that before it got to fruition? big oversight that it would completely gross people out!

  4. Toyama

    The idea of the dandruff salt shaker may be gross/disgusting but you’ve got to admit, it IS creative.

    Definitely not suitable on dinner tables but it sure is suitable as a photo-piece for, lets say a magazine regarding hair-care

  5. James Anzalone

    @Toyama Yes, its certainly creative and interesting.. I was just speaking about how that design is going to function on tables.

    ..I just imagined a full kitchen stocked with things like Mayo bottled labeled “puss” and Lemon Juice labled “Urine sample” etc etc… awful!!!!

  6. Patrick

    Of course, if the dandruff salt shaker is real, the salt shaker should be empty, to show that with their product you won’t have dandruff

  7. JK III

    How about the photo booth? That would make people mad.

  8. Jaqi Mugo

    I like the paintbrush one and the hair control

  9. Xander

    I want that guy’s pants.

  10. Raads

    lol @ Xander :D they r cool arent they

  11. Jason

    Dandruff salt shaker is nasty.

  12. Bridgette

    the salt shaker was just creepy in my opinion.

  13. Aubree(:

    hahaha these are cool looking but my fave is the pantene (bad speller) building XD

  14. Ches

    I thought they were all great. Very creative.
    Don’t be silly Toyama and James. They won’t be used in real kitchens. The idea is a marketing idea. The advert made you look at it twice. It has done its job.
