Excuse my French, but I’m in France…and these ain’t the real Red Octobers.

Picture this: You’re a huge fan of Kanye West, and you’re in Paris the week before his much-anticipated wedding to Kim Kardashian. You catch wind of where he might be in the next few hours, grab the prized Air Yeezy 2 Red Octobers you dropped a lot of coin for on eBay, and head over to the spot in hopes of catching his eye. You actually see Kimye and get RIGHT IN THERE. This is your moment. You’re gonna get Yeezy to sign your Yeezys. You make eye contact, present your beloved scarlet kicks and a Sharpie, and Ye obliges with a massive grin. THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. And then he tells you they’re fake. *screeeeeeeeching brakes* WHAT?!?!?!??
This is the story of one Kanye fan who Instagrammed the above video depicting that very scene. And to be clear, Kanye lets the dude down gently. It’s quite sweet, actually.
On the one hand, it sucks that your shoes are fake, especially if you bought them thinking they were real. On the other, YOU GOT THEM SIGNED AND PROPERLY IDENTIFIED BY YEEZUS HIMSELF. So, like, still overall a win, IMHO.
