He's got his own teddy bear, a lead figurine, a vinyl Kidrobot - so what would be the next logical move? A character in a video game, of course. But not just any video game - Karl Lagerfeld's likeness will soon appear as a radio DJ in teen boy favorite Grand Theft Auto. The game's in stores April 29, so you'll have to wait a little bit to find out if any of the "politically incorrect dialogue" the game writers included (and that Karl so loved) made it into the final cut. We imagine him saying stuff like, "If you hadn't stopped at D&D earlier you might be able to cruise through that hairpin turn a little faster" or whatever. In other Meta-Karl news, reader Emily sent us an old Adult Swim clip we somehow missed from Metalocalypse - she thinks the fashion designer in question was drawn to look like Karl. What do you guys think?
Finally, There's a Karl Lagerfeld Video Game
Karl Lagerfeld has always been a character, and now, finally, he is literally a character in a video game. The game, part of a month-long digital initiative with Lagerfeld’s eyewear distributor in France, combines two of the designer's most prominent characteristics: his penchant for sunglasses and his, er, outspoken nature.
