Censorship Shades

"These awesome glasses will totally disguise your identity, even to your mom
Urban Outfitters, purveyor of designer clothing and plastic tat to the masses, is now selling these rather fetching censorship shades. Called the “Embarrassing Photo Protective Sunglasses”, the sunnies prove that Urban Outfitters’ marketing department is as tone-deaf to quality a the buying department.
The shades feature a strip of plastic which is suspended before your eyes by the familiar nose and earpieces. To you, it is see-through. To an unwelcome paparazzo it appears as if your eyes have been censored from the photo.
The problem is that these black strips, however they are applied, do nothing to obscure your identity. Black out the eyes of a genuine superstar, like David Hasselhoff or Jean Claude Van Damme, and you would have no problem recognizing them.
The only people who would be disguised by such a gimmick are those who are already unknown. People like you, me and the entire cast of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!. Fortunately, they come at a price us plebs can afford. The Embarrassing Photo Protective Sunglasses will run you just $12.
