Mod Gone Wrong: Mod Mouse Pad

Hey, look everyone... it's a Mod mousepad set.
Found on the Retro To Go blog.
Alright, let's get the obvious out of the way. Yes, yes... army parka, target/roundel, cliche, mod gone wrong, reinforcing tired Mod stereotypes... yadda yadda, blah blah blah. You already know where I stand on this.

But let's stand back for a bit and ignore the cliches. From a Mod my perspective, this falls into the realm of things that bore the heck out of me. But from a design perspective... this is actually pretty cool! Whoever came up with this created the complete Mod 'uniform' look, just by turning a computer mouse into a target badge! It's goofy, but it's also a pretty neat idea.

Unfortunately, this set is sold out. Too bad... could have been the perfect tool for all the Internet Mods out there!

  1. This is definately one of the more clever cliche Mod stereotype items out there I've seen to buy. The rest of the stuff I see on Retro to Go and various other sites make me wanna roll the eyes and wonder, "what mods are buying this crap!"
