It's yours to try!
Posted on 30 August 2015
Inspiration can be sometimes be found in the most random of places. But how do you turn 'an embarrassing mistake' into positive product?
Marc Jacobs is the perfect candidate when it comes to turning things around and making light of any drama he has caused (hiring Winona Ryder to model for him after he had been arrested for allegedly shoplifting his clothes from Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001 is just one example), and an accidental Instagram post is by no means an exception. In June, Marc Jacobs accidentally posted a picture of his backside on Instagram with the caption "It's yours to try!" but has managed to turn his embarrassment into a fun new product.
The Instagram post was reportedly meant for a single recipient through a direct message and was only live for a few seconds as he quickly realised his mistake, but unfortunately for him, the power of a 'screen shot' meant that it was soon easily accessible online. But instead of hiding and trying to pretend it never happened, Mr Jacobs made a T-shirt out of it reading "themarcjacobs It's yours to try!" and was seen wearing it in a recent Instagram post the other night with the words: "I mean the T-shirt!"
Naturally he was not bothered by his attempt of discrete flirting and commented "Yeah. I accidentally posted a pic of my bare ass and took it down. I'm a gay man. I flirt and chat with guys on line sometimes. Big deal!"
Fair play to him.
