By this level, there have been loads of unusual tie-ins for the Simpsons characters, however what simply occurred in Paris needs to be one of many weirdest: the animated forged took half in a dwell trend present, strutting the runway and exhibiting off the designer garments of Balenciaga in a pre-prepared animated sequence.
If there’s something we perceive lower than designer trend tradition generally, it’s the product tie in that accompanies this. You should purchase these garments, however not precisely those the Springfieldians are modeling (what a disgrace, that massive collar on the pink coat would make me cooler than Seto Kaiba). As a substitute there are Balenciaga clothes available with Simpsons characters on them. And if it’s a must to ask the worth, you possibly can’t afford any of ’em:

Ay Carumba! Almost a thousand bucks to remain heat outdoors whereas expressing your adoration for 30-year-old cartoon characters?
OVERSIZED T-SHIRT (precise identify): $650
What I wish to know is…what’s the distinction between this and a $10 shirt from Goal with a Simpsons character on it? I’m guessing nothing. Intentionally overpricing sure gadgets to create a false sense of significance is among the oldest tips within the e-book. Peloton’s first train bikes have been about one-fourth the price of what they’re now, however when nobody was shopping for, they merely jacked up the worth and THEN the bikes began promoting.

In the event you’re the kind who can spend this a lot on a pockets, this dinky factor isn’t practically giant sufficient to carry the rolls you’re carrying round.
PADDED BOMBER HOODIE: $2450
By far the costliest factor on an inventory of already costly issues, the Padded Bomber Hoodie is the one merchandise that doesn’t have the identical illustration of the Simpsons clan on it. it does sport the brand although. Idiot your equally spoiled mates into considering you’re employed for the studio!
Hey…it may very well be worse. The Simpsons may very well be promoting NFTs. …I ought to actually maintain my tongue there.
