WB Fights Against 'Harry Popper' Condom

Harry Popper condomUh oh. Harry Potter condoms?! Well, not really. They're called Harry Popper condoms… but that's not fooling anyone, especially Warner Bros., who's in a legal battle against a Swiss company for copyright infringement. Their product features a prominent cartoon character wearing round glasses and waving a wand. It looks nothing like the Boy Who Lived (ironically, this moniker would be an epic fail for a condom slogan, anyway), but you can't miss HARRY POPPER in all caps, red letters, at the bottom if it!

We're all fully aware that Twilight is taking a hit this week with the Vampire Sucks spoof hitting theaters everywhere, and this company from neutral Switzerland definitely cries parody with the condom line, but is this going too far with the sexual tie in? Gawker.com translates a Swiss newspaper via Google, which quotes Daniel Radcliffe’s lawyer who claims the association would hurt his client’s image. Do you think Warner Bros. should shrug the whole thing off as a joke? Do you think Radcliffe would find the humor in it? Or should Warner really be concerned that this marketing ploy will hurt their star wizard’s image and influence fans—many of whom are still children—negatively?
