Creepy Prince candle and other dodgy merch

Anyone else seen this creepy candle?!

If he was alive I feel sure a c & d would be coming their way....!

What other dodgy merch have you seen since he’s passed? This is my top pick!

Yeah, I agree that that piece is a BIT awkward! Price defo woulda' hit that with a C&D with quickness. Some fans are going to dig it, though!

ANY of the crap sold by the scammers on Facebook who change their aliases daily but you can always tell it's the same person because it's accompanied by "best gift for fan" or "I love it!" (on their own post).
I can't believe people fall for that Photoshop crap OR that there's 100+ comments, when the junk is first posted, saying things like "I love mine!".
Scam all the way.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

The photographer would have to be the one issuing the C&D.

Yes, indeed--respect artists' rights, y'all!

Also, Prince could sometimes finesse buying image rights from his contracted photographers and such, so that is how he would have been in the driver's seat to compel image thieves to quit using those images.

None of this as a creepy of the official NPG store, that took a £1 candle, stuck a Symbol sticker on it and charged £19.99.

I got a creepy P candle from a dear friend at work with the understanding that

a) We both love everything about Prince

b) He was the greatest artist to walk the planet in our lifetimes

c) He was weird and that was part of his greatness

And I love that candle and she loves the Prince Tshirt For her baby

I miss you Prince and I hope you are resting in peace

Oh hey, I have one of these candles. Not this one specifically, but probably the same maker. It was a gift, and I like it! They used to sell them at the Ameoba Records on Sunset in LA.
