It’s a plastic monocle inside a sealed wrapper, very much like that you would find around a condom, for those emergency situations where you instantly need to appear classier or wish to protect only one eye or want to lower your depth perception.
The video Weinersmith put together for the campaign is fantastic and I thoroughly suggest you watch it right now. In fact, I’m just going to leave it right here.
I was already pretty sold on the idea before I saw the video – who doesn’t want monocles in condom wrappers – but after watching that I had to have them.
About a week and a half ago I got an email saying they had been shipped and I’ve been waiting patiently every day for them to arrive. And today they did! I giggled for a good seven minutes when I pulled them out of their box. Though I’m a little hesitant to take one completely out of its wrapper. I need to have the perfect moment. My glitter bombed friend’s wedding is this weekend so maybe that will present the opportune moment to monocle it up.
Best 35 bucks I have spent. Fuck yeah for monocles.
