Avon Derma-Full vs. Resident Evil T-Virus
Status: RealOn the left is Avon's Derma-Full X3 Facial Filling Serum. On the right is the T-Virus from Resident Evil. Notice a resemblance? A lot of people have.
When I first saw this, I thought it must be some kind of internet joke. Avon wouldn't really design one of its products to look exactly like a well-known fictional virus with the power to animate dead tissue and create an army of zombies? Would they? But as far as I can tell, that's exactly what they've done. (Thanks to Kingmonkey!)

I never thought that zombies had very good complexions.Posted by gcason on Fri Mar 13, 2009 at 06:13 AM
...Yeah, but a lot of cosmetics companies have been doing the spiral suspension in a gell/lotion for a while. I think it's just a marketing thing to make it look more scientific than it really is.Posted by Maegan in Tampa, FL - USA on Fri Mar 13, 2009 at 09:41 AM
Hey, they'd make perfect SF LARPing props!Posted by D F Stuckey in Auckland New Zealand on Fri Mar 13, 2009 at 09:41 PM
Avon and nerd culture FTW!!
Avon and nerd culture FTW!!
I was fast forwarding through some commercials had to wind back to this one because I thought it was for a new Resident Evil movie. Yet the big twist ending never came and they were just trying to sell me cosmetics. It seems like a very strange marketing ploy. Even if the cosmetics industry was using this sort of package design before the RE t-virus depiction, which one is it more identified with in the public eye these days? I'm certainly not going to use the stuff.Posted by Joe in Panama City, FL on Tue Mar 17, 2009 at 11:44 AM
