Yeah, this has to be merch because anything stamped with the KISS logo automatically falls under the (enormous) umbrella of retail items the four-piece have peddled since the 70s. Considering the variety and sheer ridiculousness involved, from KISS Kaskets (yes, Kaskets) to condoms and video games, we’re honestly a bit surprised by this fresh KISS viewing experience.
Have no doubt about it, while it’s a regular HDTV the band’s imprint goes far beyond the two corners at the bottom emblazoned with KISS. Dig this: Each time you turn it on the band appear for eight seconds to warp the minds of the young—kidding! But honestly, what kind of effect would it have on your brain to have KISS appear in front of you everytime you turn on the telly? We’re thinking somewhere along the lines of either influencing you to buy their last album (“Sonic Boom” is best avoided though) or watching the latest season of Gene Simmons’ reality show.
To cover the details now, KISS HDTVs are being licensed by Live Nation Merchandise and manufactured by Roundtable Concepts. The upcoming line up will be available in 32, 40 and 46-inch sizes. Prices range from between $818.88 and $1,98.88 but the official numbers can be had once the boxes (they’re sold is limited edition boxes, you see) hit stores come mid-November. But if you happen to be a KISS diehard, head over to www.kisshdtv.com and purchase the set of your choice right now.
