When was the last time American Eagle Outfitters did something kind of cool with their ads? Answer: We're blanking. But it looks like the retailer's higher-ups decided to hire an ad agency that's in touch with kids these days: Welcome, America's favorite mall staple, to the ironic viral video method.

In the psuedo-commercial, you'll find good looking teens saying stock quotes about individuality in the name of really, really tight (spray on) jeans. The tagline? "Lookin' tight," which is pretty hilarious. Still, we might like Vena Cava's spoof fashion film better, but only because Lizzy Caplan. Compare and contrast after the jump.
