The Taiwanese CGI Take on American Apparel's Plus-Size Model Search, In Which Dov Charney Gets Beat Up With a Sign

Recently, American Apparel announced that they would be holding a plus-size model search in a contest called "The Next Big Thing," most likely dubbed by the ever so eloquent Dov Charney. The details on AA's website read: "We're looking for fresh faces (and full-figures) to star in our XLent new campaign." And since nothing is really news until Taiwanese CGI masterminds NMA get a hold of it, here's their re-enactment of the contest, which features an angry Jezebel staffer beating down Dov with a sign that reads "full-size fannie."

Not surprisingly, this isn't the first CGI video to feature Dov. See him here in one about the decline of American industries, where he holds a sign that reads, "Will Grope For Food."
