Yes, you read that right. The nastiest fast-food chain in the biz, best known for its roast beef sandwiches, has announced a new lineup of sweatpants and sweatshirts. Arby’s Smoked Sweats, which go on sale Monday, October 4th, will apparently smell like hickory barbecue and will only be available for a limited time.
This is the most bizarre marketing scheme in a long line of strange ploys enacted by Arby’s. I mean seriously, who in their right mind wants to lounge around smelling like meat all day? I can’t even stand the lingering smell in my apartment after I cook burgers, let alone a meaty stench that’s glued to my clothes.
On their own, there’s nothing wrong with the smell of hickory wood or barbecue. In fact, those smells can be pretty great. But on clothes? Nah fam, that’s a no from me. I like my sweats smelling like fabric freshener, not a rack of short ribs. But hey, if that’s a flex you’re willing to cash out for, then who am I to judge? Jk, I’m definitely going to judge… hard. Meat sweats smelling ass.
