Shit Glitter

Gold Pills are part of the INDULGENCE range designed through the col­lab­o­ra­tion of Tobias Wong and Ju$t another Rich kid (Ken Court­ney) in 2005, who sug­gested “Like an addict, all I want is more. Like celebrity and celebrity cul­ture, demand for lux­ury items is com­pletely cre­ated.” As an exten­sion of our obses­sion with fame, celebrity, and com­modi­ties, they designed a line of lux­ury objects: INDULGENCES (for the man who has absolutely every­thing). INDULGENCES addressed the cre­ation of and demand for the unnec­es­sary, directly com­ment­ing on the ever-expanding mar­ket of lux­ury items in our culture.

This Christ­mas why don’t you get your loved ones a lit­tle gold pill that will make them shit glit­ter. Yes, this lit­tle pill is dipped in gold and filled with 24-karat-gold leaf. It’s sup­posed to make your caca all glit­tery and shiny. Too bad it costs $425.

If you’ve got so much money that you’re just look­ing for new ways to waste it, we bring you the Gold Pill for you. It’s a pill dipped in gold and filled with 24-karat gold leaf. You’re sup­posed to eat it “to increase your self-worth.” That would be funny if it didn’t cost $425 for the joke. Sup­pos­edly an added ben­e­fit is that it will make your poop sparkle, but no one seems to have proven that part yet (and if you do, please don’t send us the pic­tures). This is either genius social com­men­tary or a bril­liant way to bilk rich peo­ple out of their money.
