Benny Frying Pan is a Hobo’s Johnny Cupcakes

When I read that a Korean knockoff, Benny Frying Pan,  basically stole most of Johnny Cupcake’s designs, I was ready to bust some caps. (With my rolling pin of course.)

Hey Johnny, I have your back!

And their logo isn’t even cool-looking. It’s a stupid muffin instead of a cupcake, and a fork and a spoon instead of Johnny’s crossbones.

Here are some comparisons of the horror:

Fake on the left, Awesome on the right.

Benny's couldn't even change the city? Wtf.

Just horrible.

According to Benny Frying Pan’s U.S. site, they are “making clothes with materials of Trust, Promise, Sympathy, Communications, Fun, Happiness and etc. like a very elaborate dinner as cooked good ingredients. We are always thinking of customer than company and ourselves than oneself, also we try to be a piece of cake for making effort to social service.”

Nevermind the shirts, Benny should be punished for shitty grammar, syntax, and being completely incomprehensible.

Jimmy Choo @ H&M

H&M, the haute couture yet affordable (paradox, yes?) clothing store, will fill their store shelves on Nov. 14th with a new Jimmy Choo line of zapatos, accessories and … *drum roll*… a  new line  of clothing and purses for both women and men. (And yes, I did mean purses for women AND men.)

This is a  first for Jimmy Choo Ltd., the high-fashion London-based shoe line, since its never had a line of clothing for its consumers.  And I believe its expansion of products for a new, younger market is quite the jump.

According to People Mag, Jimmy Choo’s H&M brand will range from $60-$200, compared to the brand’s usual $500+ prices. (Hot damn!)

Hey, Jimmy Choo Ltd., I have a few questions for you: why are you just now targeting the younger market – throwing dresses, suits, and man purses their way? Is this a sign that you have also fallen victim to the plummeting, high-end fashion economy? Or are you just sharing the wealth for us normal folk?

Check out the line at H&M.com.
