Shoplifter Shopping Bag — Hide in really plain sight


My homie over at gadgetmadness.com just sent this to me.

    Shoplifter Shopping Bag

    Chances are if you are reading this you aren't a shoplifter. No, you're a normal person who goes shopping and is photographed by security cameras, scanned by devices at the entrance & exit and sneered at by security guards.

    On top of all this shopping annoyance, when you get home you probably have to deal with those impossible plastic packages that encase DVDs and everything else — you know, the ones the real shoplifters can circumvent quickly and easily.

    Why not show some sass and let the system know what you really think?

    That's the idea behind the Shoplifter Shopping Bag. (It's got to be — Winona's going to buy one, right?)



From the product website:

    Shoplifter Tote

    You've probably never been caught doing it, right? That's because you simply don't do it, right? No, not what you are thinking of, we are talking about something much darker: shoplifting. That habit that poor Winona was getting a kick out of....

    We know, it's something one would probably not want to discuss in public, let alone be caught in the act of.... But our good friends over at Citizen:Citizen have just launched a new tote yesterday, that we simply had to get our hands on, made for exactly that.

    Well, maybe it's more like a statement that you are one, or aspire to be one, or maybe you just want to give the impression that you could be one.

    Whatever your motivation, whether you are an aspiring shoplifter or just like the fact that your new favorite shopping tote will most definitely cause a stir, it is a wonderful conceptual and stylish piece of work, exactly what we expected from the incredibly talented guys over at C:C.

    It comes in two sizes: the Large is 18" x 18" x 6" (46 x 46 x 15 cm) with 23" (60 cm) long straps and the Medium [$25] can be found if you click here. Both are cotton canvas. But now that you are equipped, you might want to reconsider doing it, as it is sort of obvious....



Large costs $35.

Just plain stupid. Only an idiot would buy this piece of crap. Are you some sort of fkn weirdo to praise an item like this? Gicing it space seems pretty lame. You must be old.
