(noun) - The over-reaching and yet inexplicably clever marketing gimmick of labeling and identifying a product (or person) with an often inaccurate, "cool-sounding", or "trendy" description so that the product/person, which would ordinarily be thought of as unattractive, unskilled, and/or worthless, now seems "hot".

See also soccer sandal.
