(Newser) – Dear Anderson Cooper: “Brunette fox” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. A hair dye company is offering the CNN anchor $1 million to use their Go Away Gray product to get rid of his trademark silver hair for five years, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. But at least two bloggers are begging him not to take the money. It’s “almost as bad as asking him to remove Disaster Zone Black Tees from his wardrobe,” writes Verena von Pfetten on Styleite.

“And what sort of gravitas would a brown-haired Cooper bring to our television screens?” she adds. More importantly, “Andy is a studly guy. Maybe it's the blue eyes, the patrician demeanor, or the increasingly bulging biceps,” notes Brian Moylan on Gawker. “No, it's not. It's the hair.”

Anderson Cooper is about to become a teen idol. As you can imagine, we already have our facebook settings on auto pilot as we want up to the minute pics of the Grey Stallion turning back the clock and going from hot gay adult media idol to teeny bopper gay teen idol.
