Misguided Name Alert: Fanny Wang Headphones

We received a press release the other day from the folks at Fanny Wang… and we can't lie: We immediately double checked our spam filters to make sure the porn settings were correct. Turns out, Fanny Wang is a brand that doesn't service either body part — they're actually a headphone company run by three dudes. We initially had a bit of a pity party for their assumed brand face — having a few "Wangs" in the office ourselves, we know just how tough it is to go through elementary school with that last name, much less with the first name "Fanny." But then we read further: "Fanny is an iconic representation of the merging of technology and fashion. Is Fanny real? In our minds, yes. But she's best thought of as a sexy Betty Crocker." Oof.
