Seal Drives An I'Coo Pico 4!!!

seal_icoo_pico.jpg

I have to say, I've got nothing but respect for the man, his music, and his inspirational family ways. BUT. After seeing this picture on GTBaby.com, the home of the Rock Star Baby stroller, I can't go on pretending any longer.

Flashy strollers are for Seal what mirror-topped tables are for Kate Moss, what eurotrash bars are for Tara Reid, and what funny-looking Greek heirs are for Paris Hilton: an addiction playing itself out in the glare of paparazzi flashbulbs.

"The I'COO Pico 4 is the same stroller that Claudia Schiffer, Heidi Klum and Seal uses [sic]!" [gtbaby]

we all know he gets it all for free ... with all of the free advertising he is doing .. send him a Daddytypes shirt and see what happens ... if it is free will Seal wear/stroll it?

[I don't know; the man does shop at Target... -ed.]

That is such a shameless "product placement" shot, I can't even take it. Notice no baby actually in the stroller, and BOTH parents (read: twice as much celebrity branding)pushing it (Seal with a big PR grin right at the camera). This pic smacks of, "Okay, can you guys just push it around the parking lot so we can get a couple of shots. You can keep it if you want." Marketing/PR people have no shame (one of the reasons I am now a SAHM - I was running out of soul to sell in order to get >insert celebrity nameinsert clothing pieceinsert ridiculous TV show/movieinsert ridiculous TV show/movie

Can I just ask one question - is Seal still relevant in any meaningful way?

Considering that the stroller weighs 30 pounds alone, it's no wonder both of them are attempting to steer it....

let's hope that they are getting these strollers as promos cause otherwise they have waaaay too much money and they are spending waaaay too much of it on strollers. (and family-friendly vehicles)

I have to say, it looks like this stroller's wheels were repurposed from some industrial dolly, or something.
Not quite elegant enough for the Gregster, I would think. Very 90's. (remember those coffee tables with the dolly wheels that were everywhere?)

Is this a Quinny Heidi's pushing?

[I give up; I can't keep up any more. -ed.]

errr yes. I believe they have a buzz, 2 x frogs, stokke explory, this iĄcoo thing, mountain buggy......I know too much.
