Demand for Eyewear Brands is Real

There is so much demand for having designer eye glasses today, that Eyewear Brands are creating videos which entice users into buying glasses for themselves.

Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck has paired up with the Russian eyewear company FakbyFak to create fashion videos for the release of his new eyewear line “Toy Glasses.” The three videos are named Brutal Love, Total Liquidity, and Self Destruction. Out Magazine explains that the films are “a demonstration of what would likely happen to our Sims if they were left to their own devices in an artsy sex dungeon with a bunch of acid…Beirendonck’s videos employ the talents of performance artists Maria Forque, Salvia and Liza Keane, and are styled in 3D animations created by visual artists Claudia Maté, Ines Alpha and Jennifer Mehigan. They’re influenced by a combination of ’70s punk subcultures, Alice In Wonderland and bizarre makeup techniques”.

Cool right? See all these trippy videos here.
