Why Did This Guy Dip His adidas Yeezy Boosts Into Liquid Nitrogen & Smash Them With A Sledgehammer?
If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a pair of the exclusive adidas Yeezy Boosts that Kanye West released recently, you’ve probably got them stored away in a very safe location. Or maybe you’ve even worked up enough courage to put them onto your feet and worn them outside. But regardless of what you’ve done with them, we can pretty much guarantee that you have not dipped them into a vat of liquid nitrogen and then beaten them to death with a sledgehammer, right? Right. No one is crazy enough to do that!
Er, make that almost no one. Recently, one angry sneakerhead decided that he had had enough of all the hype surrounding the Yeezy Boosts. So he bought a pair, filmed himself wreaking havoc on them, and then posted a video to YouTube. In the six-minute clip, which you can watch below, the man dips the Yeezy Boosts into liquid nitrogen until they freeze, beats them with a sledgehammer, and then, as if all that wasn’t bad enough, burns them. It’s quite the protest on his part, and his video will definitely make you cringe if you paid good money to pick up a pair of these. Watch here:
What do you think about what this guy did? On the one hand, we appreciate that he’s taking a stand here and not simply buying into the Yeezy Boost hype. But on the other…WTF? There are a million other things that he could have done with these sneakers. For instance, he could have sold them to someone who would have taken care of them—and then donated the profits from the sale. But instead, he went ballistic and did the unthinkable with the Yeezy Boosts. And all he’s got to show for it is about 20,000 YouTube views and a gigantic mess.
Would you ever do what this guy just did?
