Shoes By Jews Launches Platform Shoes With Dick Joke
Apparently based on findings from OK Cupid which revealed guys who are taller get more dates and hookups, a group of enterprising, but short, Jewish guys decided to launch ShoesByJews, a line of footwear that adds 2-3 inches to ones height with stylish shoes that don't look like platform shoes.
To promote the launch, they've released a video on YouTube which fully leverages the notion (myth?) that a bigger dick will get a guy more sex. Except in the video they're talking about how taller guys score with more women.
Of course, the whole thing has spawned a bitch-fest over at Hacker News where people are debating whether this is a good thing or it's yet another example of people's insecurities and preconceived notions.
But, as many have pointed out, platform shoes are like padded bras. Once you get down to business and the clothes come off, every physical truism is laid bare.
