See, now, this burns me up, because it seems to me that the central logo is authentic, but the font on the side is right off a CD-ROM. Come on, guys, you're a tiny regional brand and you didn't have any better source material?

please watch this heart-stoppingly dumb video advertising pens and watches called CHAOS that are "designed by Sylvester Stallone," cost thousands of dollars, and are absolutely covered in skulls
