This has been a hell of a year for beauty and fashion.
And just when you think shit can’t get any weirder, we get RompHim™, the romper for men. (Because men can’t let us keep anything for ourselves, not even unflattering, one-piece numbers that nobody but Lena Dunham would be caught dead in.)
You’re probably wondering, what the hell is a RompHim? I am so glad you asked. From RompHim’s Kickstarter page:
Turn heads and break hearts when you take your RompHim for a spin. Is it a romper designed specially for men? Sure, but it’s also so much more.
Oh, it’s much more, all right. It’s also the first commercially available birth control for men, because no woman is going to fuck you if you’re wearing this.
It’s apparently also the one-piece outfit choice for ax-wielding psychopaths. No, really. Check it out below:
Okay, so let’s parse what we just watched.
First, we have a guy in a bronesie running through Shermer High School wielding an axe to the soundtrack of George Orwell’s 1984. Then we cut to a series of shots that are “small-town college brochure” meets “assisted living facility infomercial.”
Crystal fucking clear.
If you’re still confused, RompHim is quick with an answer. From the FAQ on their page, The RompHim is designed for:
ANYONE who wants to make a statement.
And that statement is: I have to get completely undressed to take a shit.
Seriously, though, here’s the thing: Their kickstarter campaign has raised
$47,591 $51,813 so far, well above and beyond their $10,000 goal. (I shit you not, contributions kept coming in while I was checking the figure to write that sentence. WHAT IS HAPPENING?)
Maybe the RompHim people are really on to something. As they put it on their campaign page:
We promise that once you put it on, you won’t wanna take this thing off.
(Nobody else is going to want to take it off you, either.)
