The Walk of Shame Kit: Offensive or Funny?

Mar 17 2014 - 4:30pm

Look, we've all at one point or another joked about the "walk of shame," whether we've been there or know a friend who has. (ICYMI: walk of shame refers to leaving someone's house in the morning wearing the same clothes from the night before.) But now there's actually a company that makes a Walk of Shame Kit [1] for $35. True story.

Let's see what's inside, shall we? A dress, flip-flops ("because you can't run away fast enough in the heels from last night"), a backpack ("to make a quick getaway with all your belongings"), sunglasses, a prepasted toothbrush ("you may not remember where your mouth has been"), wipes, and a call or don't-call note card to leave behind ("in case he doesn't remember your name and number, unless you don't want him to").

Wait, there's more. You also get a breast cancer awareness bracelet, because a portion of the proceeds go toward a breast cancer foundation.

At first this kit might seem like a convenient product . . . smart, even. But if we dig a little deeper, the whole idea is definitely questionable. First off, what's so embarrassing about unplanned hookups [2] anyway? It's also pretty silly, because who would, in all seriousness, pack one of these before heading out to the club?

Oh, and get this: one of its selling points targets men. "And for you guys, aren't you tired of her taking your favorite t-shirt the morning after to walk home in? Your problem is now solved. Keep a Walk of Shame Kit in your house, and you don't have to worry about calling her to get your favorite tee back again." Ick.

Let us know: What do you think? Is the kit offensive or all in good fun?
