ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Hello Kitty Engine oil - Yes its for real
We have a photo of my dear and beloved Thai wife from back when we met in 1988 in Bangkok in which she is wearing a counterfeit Hello Kitty skirt. It has a picture of the kitty being rained on and instead of “Hello Kitty,” it simply says “Hell.”
My car’s engine wants Hello Kitty motor oil so bad.
I’m interested in the six legged dog dragon on the logo in the bottom right corner.
Brilliant! Produce motor oil from feral cats. Control an invasive species and reduce dependence on foreign oil at the same time.
What? It’s not made from kitties? Damn.
designboom posted this last week with many other images of the product and the labels.
Important product note: It only works with cars sporting Hello Kitty tail pipes:
The Agip logo is a fascinating tale in and of itself. http://www.speitaly.org/pages/past/past_15.htm has the full story.
Polluting the atmosphere was never so kawaii.
is it cherry flavor?
I think their target market is the owner of this car:
Is the Agip inline font commercially available? I have been looking for it for ages.
This just made me really sad :(
Put THAT in your Honda!
What country uses SAE measurements for oil viscosity, and also measures containers in liters?
Several countries that is..
SAE and API classifications are widely known and easily understandable worldwide, SI (metric) measurements are on the other hand much easier to understand outside US or GB.
