That AK-47 Automatic Rifle? That's Just My MP3 Player

from the convergence dept

By now we’ve seen all sorts of odd or confusing convergence products, where people will try to add an MP3 player to a variety of different products that don’t necessarily make sense as an MP3 player. Here’s one, however, that goes a bit further than you might have predicted. Apparently, a UK company is selling the AK-MP3 – an MP3 player built into the ammunition clip of a Kalashnikov automatic rifle. The company selling this is doing so pretty much as a publicity stunt to sell the players loaded with audio books they’re pitching. Their website includes a picture which suggests that not only should you be wandering around swinging your automatic rifle around while bopping to music coming out of your headphones – you should do it in a camouflage bikini. The rifle, the girl and the bikini are apparently not needed to use the MP3 player. The folks behind the player point out that: “This is our bit for world peace – hopefully, from now on many militants and terrorists will use their AK-47s to listen to music and audio books.”
