Ways to use a Vuvuzela
July 26th, 2010

Yep. This one’s about as straightforward as they come. Naturally, the World Cup is now over, but given the marketing machine that was this year’s event and the borg-like assimilation mentality that went along with World Cup fever, we know you’ve got a vuvuzela at home that you’re now wondering why you bought and are trying to determine a use for. We thought we’d help you out.

You may be wondering where we found all these vuvzelas – well, it turns out that Toys R’ Us got in on the vuvuzela action this year, selling low cost vuvuzelas to every bandwagon jumper they could find. Or rather, they would have, if they hadn’t shipped 120 horns to our local store the day the world cup ended. Suffice to say, we got a good deal on them.

In other news, this week’s Unskippable is Dead to Rights: Retribution. I hear there’s a doggy in it.



  1. Have any more of em? You could always do a Fun with Vuzelas.

  2. “find a real sport”? Hell of a tag, guys. Wonder if anyone else in the world has ever thought of that?

  3. Everyone I encountered despised vuvuzelas. They were universally panned as a detriment to the event. I can’t imagine anyone buying one, let alone ‘everyone’.

    But I’m usually wrong about these things.

  4. Keith, sometimes things are universally hated and still somehow popular.

    Look at Justin Bieber. Everyone seems to hate her, and yet her music is still somehow popular.

  5. Well, I guess my prediction on the “preview pic” post was way off…Oh well, maybe someone in the crew will read it and be all “Paul needs to get possessed!!”

  10. I don’t know if that’s the right onomatopoeia. Personally, I think “VNNNNNNNNN” Is better.
