Do you wear a lot of plaid, dance on top of cars, swim in your clothes, buy real records and hone the perfect bed head?

Expect to see the product become as ubiquitous on The X Factor, Fox's second-season talent show, for which Cowell is creator-producer-judge, as the Coca-Cola cups (and competitor Beats headphones) are on American Idol.
