Haha. Agreed!

Someone told me that Hot Topic is owned by Abercrombie. If that's true, it's hilarious.

As a smart friend of mine once said - It's not counter culture if you buy it at the mall.

SuperRob said...

Slight tangent ...

Saw a sign on a kiosk at the mall once (basically an ad for the mall) that simply said, "Defining You."

I just sat there looking slackjawed and the audacity and honesty of it all.

I love Hot Topic (or rather, my daughter does, and that's good enough for me). Be around a teen long enough and you're sure to hear him or her scream (in over-dramatic angst), "I want to be myself! Just like everybody else!"

Hot Topic fills that very real teen-need.

@ angela - Hot Topic is gap owned

My favorite incident about this is seeing several kids wearing the "You laugh because I'm different; I laugh because you're all the same" in the same huddle in high school

Hahahahahahha!

Hot Topic is its own company, FWIW. Trades as HOTT.

Hmm, didn't get this one until I read the comments. Hot Topic doesn't exist in my neck of the woods at all.

But certainly clones of it do...

Hey, I learned recently that Hot Topic won't sell marijuana related stuff because it's "a family store." Sex, violence, disrespect, all fine. But none of that devil's weed.

Erin said...

Love it! I've always thought it funny that the Hot Topic kids found their counterculture gear at chain store at the Galleria.

"I wanna be different just like everybody else"

A lot of my friends shop at Hot Topic... Waaaay overpriced, for a pair of $60 pants they won't wear that often.
