Regular readers will know that I often make sly comments about Bape, and the fact that their Tokyo stores are usually empty (at least when I go). In the comment thread to this post about the Bape Nintendo DS collaboration, a reader links to this video of people waiting in line on release day. I’m still having trouble believing it’s real, but if so, wow.
Also, notice how they’ve finally updated the Bape website, turning it into, well, an actual website. To access the previous site, you had to download a proprietary piece of software.
