Shit no they’re not real, but I’m sure a handful of you fools thought they were until you got to the part where I said, “Shit no they’re not real.” But much props goes to DirecTV for their clever commercial campaign containing the opulent Russian ultra-baller and his panty-dropping petite giraffes. The marketing company responsible for said commercials has taken the campaign a step further and solidified its dopeness and acceptance in progressive youth culture by holding the honor of gracing the homepage of SNEAKHYPE.com. What they have done is create a fictitious Russian mini-giraffe farm, and given it a website of its own, in an attempt to create a viral sensation. A job well-done indeed, as you may recall seeing a photo from their site land in Tuesday’s Dopeness yesterday. If I were a scientist, or had enough money to pay one, I would be genetically engineering the shit out of some giraffes right now.

There’s been previews of this shoe floating all around the internet, and now Nike SB decided to give us a detailed look at the shoe. I’m guessing these are slotted for a Spring/Summer release. Three initial colorways it appears. I’m actually digging these a lot.

They present two pendants as part of the collaboration and they will be available at the new Benny Gold flagship store in San Francisco next month.
I hate flying. But nothing helps pass the time better than staring at a dime piece for 3 hours while she serves you peanuts and refreshments. Its a shame that my flight attendants never look like this.
Limousines are lame, Rolls Royce’s are out, and Maybach’s are so last year. If your really doing it big, you get chauffeured around town in a Modified Mercedes-Benz Van. This Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is all party on the outside, but its all business on the inside. Each of the modified Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans provides 4 captain’s chairs in supple leather along with amenities like premium audio system with wireless headphones. Other features include two 32-inch LCD TVs with DirectTV and high speed WiFi Internet access. Its pretty much like navigating the congested streets of Manhattan in a rolling suite. A fleet of 12 vehicles are standing by at Brilliant Transportation hubs in New York and Los Angeles.
