For the holidays, Post-It has released three lady-friendly versions of their classic dispensers. The dispensers are shaped like a clutch (pictured), a compact, and a giant diamond. Each one is pictured with pink Post-Its, because, you know, women.
Other than helping you grab Post-Its, what amenities do these dispensers offer? The compact one has an actual mirror in it, so you can use it to put on your lipstick. The clutch-shaped one is "great for multi-tasking." And they don't say this, but perhaps the giant diamond one is a good way to hint that your boyfriend should propose now.
If the brand really wanted to go full throttle in their ad campaign, they'd hire Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow to bring back their characters from Romy & Michele's High School Reunion and have them redo the scene where they claimed to have invented Post-Its. Or at least they'd call one of these products a "Businesswoman's special."
