If you like to rock and roll all night and party every day, what better way to do it than in front of your own genuine limited edition KISS HDTV? The all time kings of rock 'n' roll merchandising have just released their own line of official KISS HDTVs, guaranteed to spiff up the bedroom of any teenager still stuck in 1976.
We've been wondering about the value of celebrity endorsements recently, but the single word "KISS" should instantly put a stop to that discussion. These guys have become incredibly rich by slapping their name onto everything from condoms to caskets, proving that if you make it, someone will buy it.
To endow the sets with the proper level of KISSness, they all have a faux diamond plate frame featuring the KISS logo in the bottom corners, and when you fire this baby up, a giant picture of the band appears on the screen for the first eight seconds. That feature could get a bit embarrassing if you have the boss coming over for dinner.
The TVs actually look pretty decent on paper, with an LED back lit screen and 1080p resolution. Sizes range from the pricey 32-inch ($818), through 40 and 46-inch, to the hotter than hell 55-incher which also features a 240 Hz frame rate. All sizes are limited to 15,000 copies, so snap 'em up before they sell out. If you buy the 55-inch set ($1988) they'll even toss in one of the 32-inch sets for free.
The KISS HDTVs are available online now, with retail store sales expected in November.
