    Its actually just popular because of it being different, unusual, and plain catchy! Well that, and its just a huge bandwagon and an internet one hit wonder. Wait 3 months and it will be history. That's the theory at least...

    How about combining this with the Lego costume ible? Now that would be really crazy...

    This is great! Especially the shoes! Next time you'll have to come up with the outfit the guy in yellow is wearing or maybe the towel PSY is wearing in the sauna!! ;)

    I can't believe how good these shoes look. If you didn't tell me it was just duct tape, I would have never even known.
