If you like the idea of these shoes, I'll make you a pair of them for half the price.

A fashion company called Golden Goose just rolled out some new sneakers. And by "new" I mean they're a new product . . . but they don't look that way.

The shoes are covered in dirt, they look beat up, and there's a piece of duct tape across the top of them that's supposed to look like it's holding them together.

Mariachi Singer Serenades Couple He Soon Realizes Includes His Wife

The singer of a mariachi band got a big shock during a gig recently. After being hired by a man in Coyacan, Mexico City to surprise serenade his girlfriend, the singer ended up being the surprised one after realizing the “girlfriend” was actually his own wife.

Apparently, the band started playing under the balcony of the specified address, as per the man’s request. Everything was going fine until the woman emerged from inside, immediately recognizable to the band’s singer as his own wife. That’s when the music stopped, and the fight began.

Eventually, the other band members were able to stop the fracas between the singer and his wife’s lover, who said he didn’t even know she was already married. In fact, after the serenade, he was supposedly planning on proposing to her himself. No word on how far that plan went.
