Everyone knows Fruit Ninja right? Sure. It is one of the most popular mobile games of all time amassing over 300 million downloads worldwide since its release in April 2010. It is one of the most fun, wonderfully simple, beautifully designed mobile games of the mobile game era thus far. In Fruit Ninja, the entire task of the game is simply slicing fruit. However, as players become more accustomed and advanced in Fruit Ninja, they begin to really think about how they slice each fruit. They think about what angle a swipe of the finger should be in order to slice the most fruit at once, or they think about what motion they should make in their swipe to be awarded the widely sought after “critical +10” in Fruit Ninja. Fruit Ninja also has a lot of variety in different blades one can use, and each blade is different. For example, there is a blade called “Mr.Sparkle” that gives you extra points every time you slice a pineapple. In short, there are a lot of different ways to slice fruit, and its players are very in tune with those ways. So in tune, that these slicing patterns have been made into jeans, taking the internet by storm.
These jeans have slices, not rips, and not just any slices, slices that resemble the various types and eagles of slices an avid Fruit Ninja player thinks so deeply about. The brand that is making these jeans is a Korean brand, Leje. Leje is selling these jeans for a whopping $528 a pair. But, people are buying them! They are architecturally very interesting.
The jeans are able to stay upright, even though they are slashed. People are looking at them on social media completely confused about how they work and how they are made. Remember that dress that no one could agree on whether the dress was blue and black or gold and white? And the whole world was up in flames over it. Or that sound that played where endlessly fought over whether it said Yanny or Laurel? Well, these Fruit Ninja-inspired sliced pants, are exactly that, for the world of mobile games.
