50 Shades of Grey Poster Reveals 50 Shades of Grey – Colors

I have to admit, I’m a little impressed. You have to really be brazen to try a cash grab this obvious.

The people behind this 50 Shades of Grey poster must have noticed that people are Google searching the eponymous erotic novel in mass numbers these days. So somewhere, someone was like hey, you know what? Let’s throw up 50 shades of the color grey, then slap names on them that make less sense than the ones tacked onto the Crayola crayons at the back of the box. Of course, there is the problem of there not actually being 50 shades of grey, which apparently has been solved by throwing in a beige or two and some blues, and calling it a day. The bolded words in the product description for extra SEO points are a nice touch.

So, if you want a poster that has a tangential relationship to an erotic novel that, regardless of its cultural importance at present, will inevitably be dated, head on over to Firebox and plunk down a little less than $16. At the very least, you can use it for color matching if you want to repaint a room in your house.
