Jimmy Kimmel Will Sell You a Knockoff of Rihanna’s Met Gala Cape
With the internet buzzing about all of the 2015 Met Gala fashion, it's no surprise that someone would try to turn a profit from the night's most dramatic look. Jimmy Kimmel, we expected better from you.
On the May 5 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the late-night host reacted to the most unconventional looks from the event, which included outfits worn by Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker and Anne Hathaway.
However, Jimmy points out that with all of the time and effort put into creating the garments, it's a shame they aren't available to the mass market. Enter the "Rihanket" informercial, which you can check out in the video above, which explains how YOU can rock Rihanna's embroidered yellow cape.
"You loved it on Rihanna at the Met Gala," the voiceover says. "Now own it at home! From the makers of the Snuggie and the Shamwow comes the Rihanket! With over 1,000 amazing uses around the home: It's a dress, it's a coat, it's a blanket, it's a tent. It mops, it dusts. Who needs strollers? Save a jumper from a fire! Jewish wedding, base jumping. Yes, the Rihanket truly does it all."
The best part?
"Act now and you'll also receive the tiny piece of cloth Kim Kardashian wore, as a free bonus," the voiceover adds. "It's a dress, it's a doily, it's a curtain for a dollhouse window! Don't delay. Order your Rihanket and free Kardashian Kloth today! Just four easy payments of $29,999.99."
(BTW, we called the number in the informercial and sadly, we were unable to purchase a Rihanket.)
Hopefully Rihanna has a sense of humor about Jimmy's spoof. If not, he might find himself unexpectedly woken up by RiRi in the middle of the night.
