It’s not enough for Immortan Joe’s War Boys to make a historic splash into Valhalla. Do heroics even matter if they’re not shiny and chrome?
That’s a question for the ages, to be sure. The way the War Boys sprayed silver paint over their mouths and noses is one of the many eye-catching and memorable parts in Mad Max: Fury Road and something we’re bound to see replicated at conventions throughout the summer. Cosplayers don’t have to turn to toxic substances either, because food coloring spray maker Wilton has an edible spray-on silver mist, and the War Boys are already leaving reviews on Amazon. (Also, spoiler: Amazon still exists in the wasteland and the War Boys have access.)
The hilarity started on the product page for Wilton’s Silver Color Mist on May 20 with this review from W. Bartels: “WITNESS ME! I WILL FEAST IN VALHALLA FOR I AM SHINY.” Because the Internet can be awesome, more reviews started pouring in. Some notes are critical, claiming the mist didn’t help at all in capturing Furiosa, but most are positive and claim the spary will help you “Make the most of your half-life.”
And it gets better! The seller of the product rolled with the Mad Max attention and took the time to answer an important customer question. Witness this:
You know how Jurassic World teamed up with Barbasol to market dino-themed cans of shaving cream? I hope the folks at Wilton are on the phone right now to make Mad Max-branded chrome spray. That would probably guarantee them entrance to Valhalla.
