Is it wrong that I love the disturbing Saltburn bathwater vinyl design?

I haven't quite recovered from the mental whiplash of Emerald Fennel's 2023 black comedy Saltburn, but now it's time to relive the trauma all over again. In one of the most ingenious (and disturbing) marketing moves, Bad World has created a bathwater-inspired vinyl featuring the film's iconic Y2K soundtrack and surprisingly, the internet is going wild for it. 

While Saltburn was highly regarded for its aesthetic – from its classy film posters to its striking cinematography – it's typically remembered for one standout scene (don't make me spell it out just yet). Known for their liquid-filled vinyl designs, Bad World's partnership with Saltburn is – for better or for worse – a match made in heaven.
