Hello Kitty wraps for Smart cars not a wise idea

Hello Kitty car wraps are now available in the U.S. for Smart cars.

Hello Kitty invaded gift shops 35 years ago, and since then has killed everything in its path---speakers, keyboards, phone rechargers, even chainsaws--with cuteness. Now even Smart car owners can wrap their vehicles in the iconic Japanese feline.

Sanrio, which is celebrating it's 50th anniversary, has partnered with Smart to bring three Hello Kitty full-body designs to Smart cars.

The wraps come with a three-year warranty. Pricing starts at $550 for partial wraps (two-door panel) and $1,700 for full wraps.

"Our collaboration with smart USA allows fans to truly embrace the Hello Kitty lifestyle," said Janet Hsu, president of Sanrio. "This is the first time that Sanrio will offer a Hello Kitty car in the United States."

Hmmm, I'm pondering what would happen if a Hello Kitty-wrapped car met a Meowth-wrapped car. It wouldn't be pretty (or cute).
