Rudy’s got a little problem. He doesn’t mean to rude, he was just designed that way. Pull off his head to reveal a chamber full of fun, flatulent noise putty. Insert your thumb, and let ’em rip. Rigid plastic construction

Design for Club Earth 2001

This fun set of specs lets you see things from a fly’s perspective (at least like they show it in the movies). Tinted compound lenses can be turned with the tip of your finger to create wild kaleidoscopic effects. Do not wear while operating heavy machinery.
