Tiny hats war taken to Urban Outfitters
Definition of trying too hard: when you're wearing a fashion statement that originated as an "In Living Color" gag.
In September, "Saturday Night Live" ran a sketch featuring ladies who lunch duking it out in a tiny hats war. It sparked off an actual tiny hats war online when fans of the "Tim and Eric Awesome Show" blasted "SNL" for riffing on a skit three years ago about, you guessed it, tiny hats.
Of course, mocking tiny hats has been a comedic goldmine at least since the Men on Film donned petit chapeaus for an "In Living Color" sketch.
Now, you too can get in on the prank. It looks as if the designers at Urban Outfitters thought tiny hats would actually be something women would fight over. They're now marketing the "San Diego Bowler Hat Headband."
I take offense to this for two reasons. I'm from San Diego, and we do not wear tiny bowler hats there. And, please: We already have enough ridiculous clothes options already with this whole jeggings thing. Sigh.
(Thanks, Matt Stopera!)
