All I (don’t) want for Christmas

My Scene: Hudson ($8.99, from $16.99)

Don’t get it twisted: blandly hunky My Scene teen dream Hudson comes with a soccer ball, trophy, and wife-beater shirt, but he ain’t about perpetuating no lazy stereotypes, fool. “Being an athlete doesn’t mean you have to be a jock, know what I’m saying?” he pleads on the back of his box in his signature Wafrican-American version o’ Ebonics. He goes on to explain that he plays in a co-ed league with “some total hotties.” What kind of total hotties? “This girl Madison,” for starters. Then, in a daring rhetorical move, Hudson shifts to addressing Madison directly: “Wassup, girl?” That’s some seriously dope flava you’re kickin’ there, Hudson! Madison won’t be able to resist your smooth moves. The back of the box goes on to insist that Hudson and the rest of his My Scene boyz are “Street cause they wannabe, fresh ’cause they have to be.”

    I’m glad non perpetuating stereotypes like Hudson here are out there de-stereotyping the world for all us cliched losers.

    It’s reassuring that he has non-cheerleading, soon-to-lose-her-virginity-to-peer-pressure, hard drinking Madison to hang off his arm like the self-destructive eye candy she surely is.

    She probably comes accesorised with a bloody knitting needle and a (smashed) bottle of gin
