Man Deep-Fries His $900 Kanye West Yeezys Because It’d Be ‘Really Dope’

Deep fried Yeezy Boosts

If you were one of the people lucky enough to get your hands on a pair of Adidas Yeezy Boost shoes, then you might also be one of the people who took to eBay to resell the shoes for over $2,000.

If you weren’t one of the people lucky enough to get the shoes, or you were one of the people who paid over $2,000 for a pair — and if you were, please give us that money instead next time, or invest directly in Kanye West ideas — you probably don’t want to watch this video. Too bad! You clicked! (Warning: It contains NSFW language).

Brandon, who runs the YouTube channel Name Bran clothing, took to the platform to express himself in a very specific way: by deep-frying a pair of Yeezy Boosts (which he claims in an Instagram post to have bought for $900).

Why? Well, he posits that they’d look “really, really dope” in the background of his videos. Also, this is his first time deep-frying. (It shows: The 10.5-size Boosts look a liiiiiiitle underdone when he’s done with them.)

The nearly-finished handle of what appears to be vodka in Brandon’s hand might go a little way towards explaining his actions, but … next time maybe just drunk-shop on Amazon? Or again — and I can’t stress this enough — please send us the money instead.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
