So we have prepaid debit cards from Russell Simmons, RushCard, and now one is coming from the Kardashian sisters. Russell Simmons built up a hip-hop empire but the Kardashian sisters?!? Wasn’t Kim’s initial claim to fame a “straight-to-DVD-movie” a la her friend Paris Hilton? Are people really going to get this card? Do people, or kids, really care?
I don’t know. Maybe I would be more apt to get some kind of heavy metal card. The Metallica Black Card would have promise. Or a better black card could be the Spinal Tap Card (“this card goes to 11!”). Maybe an iron Iron Maiden Card (it could have some awesome album art). How about a Guns N Roses Appetite for Credit Card?
Or better yet, we can have some famous investors cards. Maybe the Peter Lynch Invest in What You Know card? The card analyzes your spending and invests in companies of stores you frequent. Of course we would need the Warren Buffet card, which would invest in well-known companies that have great valuations.
What do you think would make a great endorsement card?
