In 2005, designers Tobias Wong and Ju$t another Rich kid (Ken Courtney) collaborated on the INDULGENCE range of products. This line of luxury objects “for the man who has absolutely everything” was designed as an extension of our obsession with fame, celebrity, and commodities. The products included the above 24K gold leaf capsules ($425) which turn your poop sparkly and gold, as well as a gold-dipped pen cap turned into a cocaine spoon ($375).
This morning, chef Chris Cosentino of Incanto restaurant in San Francisco ‘grammed a picture of the amazing gold poop pill invention, with the caption, “Wow this gives a whole new meaning to asshole.” Did Cosentino purchase the pill? Will the chef forever poop 24K gold leaf while convincing the public that offal is awesome? Who knows, but thank you, chef, for bringing our attention to this vital consumer product.
