Nerf guns, Nerf blasters, whatever you want to call them. I love them. I think they’re fantastic. And I don’t seem to be alone either. Nerf always have a way of popping up on television or in some other form of media. YouTube, the daily news, a music video, it doesn’t matter. It is not uncommon to see or hear about a celebrity with a Nerf gun. And I always got a kick out of that for some reason. Seeing movie stars toting Nerf blasters or hearing them talk about how they had a Nerf War with their family. I can’t get enough of that kind of stuff.

That’s all folks! Nerf blasters are here and they’re here to stay. You can’t get rid of them. Even when it’s not actually a Nerf gun it’s a Nerf gun. Even when it’s Buzz Bee or one of those knockoff Nerf blasters, most people will still call it a Nerf gun anyway. Nerf is a part of the pop culture in this country. Just like Sony, just like Samsung, just like Apple. Nerf blasters are here to stay.
