And it gets better!
If budget constraints are forcing you to go full Emperor’s New Clothes, you can now shell out $9.5 for silvery Apple AirPod lookalikes.
Unfortunately, that $9.5 is only going to get you what amounts to a fashionable ear plug fashioned out of zinc.
The “ASOS DESIGN faux headphone ear piece in silver tone” is purely decorative, doesn’t even come in a set and and plays no sound (other than that of desperation?).
RetailDive put it best – after having “blessed the world with some gems over the years, including a skort-jeans combo, see-through pants and a pleather outfit that only Britney Spears could pull off”, the retailer outdid itself.
And, considering that the faux AirPod is non-returnable, those who want to ironically add it to their outfit do have to buy it for keeps.
Who knows? Maybe someone, someday, will actually say “That’s a nice earring!”.
