Hey Guy$, KI$$ Ha$ A Hot New Merchandi$ing Idea!

Posted by on June 1, 2009

kissYou wanted the best, now pay me! Remember when the iPhone app store launched, and that cool “virtual Zippo” app that made your iPhone look like a lighter came out? That was pretty awesome, mainly because it was free. 

Well now KISS is looking to exploit that trend, and have come out with their own version of a virtual lighter by partnering with a company called Spark of Blue. I’m sure that the app is “hotter than hell,” and you could set “heaven on fire,” and then you’ll need to call a “firehouse.” I could keep going with the KISS puns, but instead I’ll just mention that this is a 99 cent application.

Yes, by slapping their logo on Zippo’s version, they’re charging money for something you can get for free. We’re shocked that KISS would cheapen their staunch anti-commercial, no-sellout image. Spark of Blue isn’t done yet, either. The company has plans to unveil virtual lighters from The Who, Poison, and Lil Wayne. If you’re a flaming KISS fan, you can download the app here.
