Duck Dynasty is getting in the gun business.
The gunmaker Mossberg has teamed with Duck Commander, the company owned by "Duck Dynasty's" Robertson clan, to release nine different shotguns, as well as two semiautomatic rifles and a semiautomatic pistol, according to CNN.
Per the report, patriarch Phil Robertson (who was recently in some hot water for his anti-gay remarks) is featured with his sons in four video ads for the new guns on Mossberg's web site. In one of the spots, Phil says, "Do you know what makes me happy, ladies and gentlemen? To blow a mallard drake's head smooth off."
Although this is a new business venture for the Duck Dynasty clan, it may not come as a huge shock since they're known to hunt. However, there is plenty of other celebrity merchandise out there that may seem a bit unusual.
One Direction Eyeglasses: A new and strange product from the boy band comes after their recent collaboration with Vision Express. Although Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik are not known to wear glasses themselves, they've created seven different designer frames for their female fans, with a price tag of 131 pounds each (roughly $215).
KISS Casket: Loyal KISS fans can take their love for the rock band to the grave—literally. "Our KISS caskets offer fans a unique expression of their love for this iconic rock band," said Nick Popravsky VP of Sales & Marketing Eternal Image. "KISS fans worldwide have been awaiting these products and we've even received product inquiries from as far away as The Netherlands recently." The black and steel casket is retailed at $3,300.
High School Musical Cereal: Who wouldn't want to buy cereal with Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron's faces on the box?! Oh, a lot of people? Regardless, the movie franchise attempted to boost marketing by putting out a Kellogg's cereal based on the popular flick. It was described by Kellogg's website as "sweetened, vanilla-flavored corn cereal with star power." Unfortunately, a serving of this cereal did not improve your singing and dancing skills.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Toothpaste: In 2003, the twin actresses helped promote dental hygiene by coming out with an Aquafresh toothpaste in "Bubble Cool" flavor. Robert Thorne, CEO (and co-founder along with Mary-Kate and Ashley) of Dualstar, the twins' consumer-product company, had said in a statement at the time, "Mary-Kate and Ashley are closely involved in the development of all of their products.
"They personally selected the flavor for the mary-kateandashley brand toothpaste and their picture for the packaging of the toothpaste," he said.
Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt Energy Drink: Hi-yah! The action star tried to market himself by releasing a line of energy drinks. Seems kinda fitting, right? According to the website, "Steven Seagal's Lightning Bolt energy drinks are as unique as the man who created it."
It's also the "only energy drink made of 100% juice," and it allows you to drink the "Asian Experience." Whatever that means.
Twilight Band-Aids: For those who suffered injuries after falling for Edward Cullen or Jacob Black—this is for you. Sure, a kiss on your boo-boo from Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner would be more desirable, but since that's not happening, there are Twilight Band-Aids! But it'll cost you. A New Moon package of 24 Band-Aids with three different styles is going for $30 on Amazon.
