Odell Beckham Jr.’s 2019 ESPYs look inspires hilarious memes
Odell Beckham Jr. might be as famous for his fashion sense as he is for his football play at this point.
The former New York Giant, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns earlier this year, caused quite a stir on social media at the 2019 ESPYs on Wednesday night by showing up in a Prada vest with a huge oversized pocket that sparked countless jokes and memes on social media.
The high-fashion vest — which echoes the Louis Vuitton “bibs” designed by Virgil Abloh and made popular by Timothée Chalamet and Michael B. Jordan — hails from Prada’s spring 2020 runway collection, which showed in Shanghai last month.
“Odell Beckham, now available as a Jansport backpack,” one person tweeted. Others compared him to a Girl Scout: “Odell Beckham Jr. is about to sell so many damn Thin Mints,” another commenter joked.
There were also comparisons to NFL photographers (who wear khaki-colored vests on the field) as well as a kangaroo, Adam Sandler’s “Water Boy” character Bobby Boucher and a Band-Aid.
OBJ paired his khaki vest with matching shorts and a pair of Nike Air Force 1 sneakers customized by the famed “Shoe Surgeon” Dominic Ciambrone.
The wide receiver previously won an ESPY award for Best Play and was nominated for Breakthrough Athlete, both in 2015. He presented former teammate and current Giant Saquon Barkley with the Breakthrough Athlete award last night.
