Tackiest Souvenir Contest!

Philadelphia's Tackiest Souvenir -- The Bloody Balboa

Our friends over at I Wanna Go There are sponsoring a “Tackiest Souvenir Ever!” contest that runs through Sunday, October 10.

Here’s our entry, a bloodied Rocky Balboa coffee mug commemorating the bruised mug of Sylvester Stallone at the end of both Rocky I and Rocky II.

What I especially love about the mug is the copyright-skirting savvy of the creator, never using the name Rocky and knowing that “Yo, Philly!” is generic enough to avoid a prolonged licensing battle.

Go vote for your favorite insane souvenir!

Tacky Tourist Photos is also considering launching a photo contest.  Any suggestions?
