Los Angeles, CA (UPI) - Multinational Paint giant Krylon has begun marketing its spray paint to gangs around the world. In an effort to corner the market on a growing phenomenon, Krylon strives to be known as the "Gangsta's Paint".
"I like that we're the first to enter this virtually untapped market," states Jeff Bristol, new Advertising Manager for Krylon, "We have been fronting this Graffiti Hurts campaign for too long and it's not made us one red cent. Graffiti can be a beautiful thing, and Krylon can be the official paint for all the gangs out there."
Some of the colors being released are Criptastic Dark Blue, Tagariffic Deep Blood Red, Gangster Disciple Black, Kingsational Vibrant Green, Counterful Violet, Vice Lord Brite White and Cobraliscious Light Blue. Thirty-six gansta-oriented colors are slated for production with the possibility left open for more.
"We have to corner this market before anyone else, " states CEO Roger Cordman, "We call the campaign 'Unity in Colors' and with it, we hope to boost sales by 100%. We may even expand into the scarves and bandannas market in the future."
