The hotly anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters Valentine’s Day weekend. And with some box office analysts expecting a big opening weekend, it should be no surprise that different brands (beyond the obvious) want in on the action. From teddy bears to laundry detergent, here are the most unexpected products itching to be a part of the Fifty Shades phenomenon.

Teddy Bear

Vermont Teddy Bear Company

“If you want to dominate Valentine’s Day” (Get it? GET IT?) then the Vermont Teddy Bear company has just the stuffed toy for you. This suited-up Christian Grey comes complete with handcuffs, a tie, an eye mask and “smoldering grey eyes.” Teddy Ruxpin doesn’t look so terrifying anymore, does he?


Fifty Shades of Grey Wine

Does your palate lean more toward “red satin” or “white silk” ? This E L James-approved wine costs $18 per bottle.

Fifty Shades of Chicken

Clarkson Potter

And what compliments your wine better than a submissive slice of chicken? This cookbook — attributed to F. L. Fowler — teaches you how to tie up a chicken in every way imaginable. Recipes include Dripping Thighs, Learning to Truss You, Erect Chicken and other foul-sounding fowl.

Fifty Shades of Kale


Similar concept, different leading lady. And you thought kale was a part of a “clean” diet.

Laundry Detergent

Nail Polish


The special collection by OPI is somehow only available in six different shades.
