What’s not to like?

Seriously, let’s deconstruct it!

 

From this web site:

The Royal Fridge was the brainstorm of a Facebook discussion by a distributor for General Electric appliances in the UK. This is one piece of memorabilia that literally takes the cake – and so much more! David Garden, a director for GE at GDHA has really high hopes for this 5’9″ royal wedding souvenir. “Who knows,” he says. “Perhaps Prince Charles or Camilla will buy one as a gift for William and Kate.” After all, “Commemorative tea towels are so 1981.”

  1. If I woke up at 3 in the morning and needed a glass of water, knowing the giant image of two people would be staring at me from my darkened kitchen would be enough to keep me under the covers until morning.

  2. Each time I look at a photo of a face, I see something slightly different.
    With time, what I see in a face may transform itself completely.

    With a glance, I see more in Kate’s and Williams’s faces than I suspect I am supposed to see. I don’t want to imagine what I would see after 5 years of staring at them each time I open the refrigerator.

    Even now, their faces, especially the tension in Kate’s, upset me.
    Their faces don’t aid my already sensitive digestion.

  3. From these reactions I’m tempted to conclude that the fridge is a subtle tool in the UK’s battle with obesity.

  4. I find this fridge so funny. Every time I see it I can’t help thinking of the “Women in Refrigerators” meme from the world of superhero comics.

    The term “Women in Refrigerators” was coined by writer Gail Simone… It refers to an incident in Green Lantern #54 (1994)… in which Kyle Rayner, the title hero, comes home to his apartment to find that his girlfriend, Alex DeWitt, had been killed by the villain Major Force and stuffed in a refrigerator. from Wikipedia

    “Women in Refrigerators” is now used more generally to refer to any pop culture plot (in comics, videogames, TV, etc.) where the male hero is ‘called to action’ by killing, depowering, or otherwise harming his love interest.
