11. Watchmen Condom
Considering it features what’s been routinely slated as one of
lamest, most awkward sex scenes in recent memory – really, who gets it on to
the tune of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah? – it’s quite bizarre that the folks
over at Warner Brothers’ marketing department though a condom would be the
ideal thing to promote Watchmen.
Featuring the befitting Watchmen tagline “We’re society’s only protection”, the promotional prophylactic came in a fetching shade of neon blue which we’re presuming was some kind of homage to the movie’s frequent full-frontal scenes of Dr Manhattan and his glowing blue penis.
It doesn’t seem like many are left these days but luckily there were a few who didn’t rush home and ravish their loved ones after that lusty Leonard Cohen soundtracked sex scene and a couple of Watchmen condoms can be found on eBay.
Since the film came out eight years ago and condoms usually have a shelf life of no longer than five years, they’re strictly for collectible purposes rather than practical use.
