Beef Jerky is high fashion. Want to know why? Because The Fat Jewish says so. As part of his new #MeatMovement campaign, the Instagram sensation has teamed up with jerky company Three Jerks to make dehydrated filet mignon the must-have accessory of 2015.
To get you up to speed, here are the facts:
- In a NYT profile, The Fat Jew invented a story about a sponsored Instagram campaign in which he would would be photographed in a jerky jacket
- An artisanal jerky company called Three Jerks reached out to The Fat Jew and proposed to make him an actual vest
- A video shoot was coordinated, and the rest is sexy meat history
Note: The vest was made using 20 pounds of filet mignon beef jerky, with a retail value of $2500. “Wearing jerky in the club is a great look,” says The Fat Jew. Three thongs were made, and FJ kept one for “personal use.”
