Penn's Pretty People Promote PFW


Forget the age-old, proven methods of pop culture spoofs and campy humor—Penn's Fashion Week doesn't settle for those juvenile gimmicks. Get this: their promo video is not funny. Intentionally!

With a casual song that "just came to say hello" and a simple black-and-white motif, this video (nonchalantly) screams, "Yeah, we're sophisticated like that." It also adds, "We're so beautiful that this awkward solo dancing doesn't even make you feel uncomfortable in the slightest bit. Look, it's been two minutes and you're still watching us prance."

The promo not only debriefs us on the PFW's schedule of events but also reminds us that no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to pull off a basic V-neck like these kids.
