If you've ever wanted to see a bunch of buff guys in bondage gear and Hello Kitty masks perform highly sexualized modern dance, then the Hello Kitty for M.A.C. ad above is probably for you. There was a time when we thought maybe M.A.C. didn't realize quite how bizarre their Hello Kitty collab had turned out, but around minute 1:35, when the stick-thin Alice in Wonderland figure follows a black cat into a pink foam replica of her own cervix, we changed out minds. They're definitely in on the joke, and we can only assume the target audience is drag queens.
