Faux News: H&M to sell Gadhafi-inspired clothing line

3 Mar

How does a brand that aims to appeal to the “me” generation hope to maintain its edginess? That’s what the designers and marketing gurus behind H&M’s new clothing line asked themselves. Their answer was to copy the trademark style of one of the most self-centered, egotistical, dangerous and oblivious madmen in the world. No, not Charlie Sheen. No one is interested in his crack-addict-douchebag style. I am talking about Libya’s incompetent, insane and irresponsible leader, Moammar Gadhafi, whose penchant for wearing over the top military-inspired costumes (that would make Michael Jackson gasp) and pumpkin and fuscia wraps and headdress while spouting utter lies  has captivated those who claim to know good couture. I suppose it makes sense. Why not just continue the exploitation?

Gadhafi's African Dictator Shirt

Replicas of the above shirt will be sold for 79 euros beginning in April. It’s wrinkle free and 100% inappropriate.
