A problem has erected — literally — for the boys of One Direction!!!
The quintet of singing heartthrobs' team is fuming about an U.S. condom brand's spin of the band's name, going by One Erection.
“Stay ‘UP ALL NIGHT’ with these FDA approved ONE ERECTION condoms. There is only one direction to go with these babies and that is UP! Great ice breaker at parties and bars.”
Still, 1D's management is NOT laughing because not only are they ripping off the name, but they're also using the same font AND placement used for "Up All Night." It's hard to ignore that there just so happen to be five smiling condom characters (below) too.
Thankfully though, the industry heavyweights are SO scary that the condoms have already been removed from ripnroll.com
While the handsome hunks think the whole thing is HIGHlarious, it is very likely that management already unleashed a cease and desist letter given the brand's disappearance.
Before the rubbers were pulled off the site, the source spilled:
“They are considering bringing in lawyers to stop them shamefully exploiting the band to sell condoms.”
Okay, so it may not be fair that 1D isn't getting a check for the sure-to-be success of these latex pleasure tools.
However, if their team is REALLY worried about their reputation being tarnished, they should probably start by stopping the boys from running down hotel hallways in their skivvies! Just a suggestion! HA!
If only we could've gotten our hands on a handful before they were yanked away from devoted (and responsible *WINK*) Directioners!!!!
