Cleveland-based web developer Will Smidlein thought he would poke around with Vine's code seeing as it was just released on the Android platform.
To test his meddling, Smidlein posted the full-length version of "Never Gonna Give You Up" to Vine, which technically only allows user video posts to be 6 seconds or shorter. It wasn't long before Twitter, creators of Vine, had one of their engineers contact Smidlein directly and asked him to please remove his video, as it was causing some "technical difficulties." Smidlein promptly deleted the video and was rather apologetic about the whole situation:
Don't feel too bad, Will. The engineers probably shouldn't have pushed such easily breakable code in the first place.
By now, many of us know about Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. We also know how he recently revealed to the world that he's a superficial, elitist douchewad:
"Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla. You don't alienate anybody, but you don't excite anybody, either."
Basically, Mike Jeffries thinks only hot, young, ripped, modelesque people should wear A&F clothes. Bad move, Mikey.
In light of Jeffries' exclusionary-and-proud views, Youtubers Greg Karber, James DeLorean and Daniel Lisi decided to take to the streets and give A&F a little brand readjustment... by giving out A&F clothes to the homeless.
That's right, welcome to hobo chic, Mike Jeffries! Enjoy being an awful human being!
