Today at London Fashion Week Men’s, Vivienne Weswood debuted a crown that is half Burger King freebie, half Where the Wild Things Are during her fall 2017 show. Is this a thing?
Listen, I was all about getting my birthday party on at a Burger King, wearing one of those golden paper crowns and treating the play area like my own personal kingdom. But at some point, we have to grow up and accept the reality of the situation. I just can’t see a situation where guys are gonna say: Today at work, we’re going to take part in a savage competition to decide who gets to be the The Lord of the Flies — boy, thanks Vivienne Westwood, for making just this thing.
While Max, the protagonist in Where the Wild Things Are, would be serving some very strong lewks in this, even he realizes play time is over and goes back to the real world. And once back, he receives a hot meal. The choice is as simple as that, tbqh.
