Carson Daly: Today’s Justin Bieber-Related Hysteria
In his latest efforts to take over the world, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] released a nail polish line just in time for the holidays. The polishes, named after his own songs, debuted exclusively at Walmart. So are they a hit or miss?
Are you kidding me? Of course the nail polish is selling like hotcakes! In fact, Walmart says it is completely sold out of the line in all 3,000 of its stores!
Women’s Wear Daily reported that the discount superstore had fully stocked its shelves as recently as January 7th, but clearly it wasn’t enough for the rabid [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bieber[/lastfm] fans.
The beauty product shortage turned into a nightmare for Walmart’s national call center. A rep for the store described:
The call center in Bentonville [Arkansas] was flooded and flooded with calls with people wanting to know where they could get the nail polish. We just couldn’t keep up.
But fear not, Beliebers. Even if Walmart can’t keep up with the nail polish demand, you can still buy the pop star’s memoir, singing doll, or even [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] pajamas. Oh yeah, he sells music too…imagine that?
