Man on the Street: The New York Drip | DESUS & MERO | SHOWTIME


Yo. A popular British
fashion vlogger has made his name by
asking rich people how much their outfits cost. Here he is with
some Greek teens. 1,800, 4,000. BLOGGER: Whoa, wait what is– Cartier. 2,000 then 2,000. BLOGGER: I wasn’t
ready for that flex. I get that whole outfit
on Third Avenue for $80. Know what I’m saying? Fuck outta here. Look at it, look at everybody
around, running around her. Like, yo word? Oh, Cartier earrings, oh shit. It’s a literal child
stunting in designer brands. This is 750. The Prada shirt like 120. BLOGGER: Ooh. Ooh, comparing
her to Young MA. Ooh. [LAUGHS] And then this
wallet was like 200. BLOGGER: What? Oh my god, kid. I did not expect that. Imagine having on 3,000
pounds worth of clothes and you gotta to be in bed by nine. What kind of life is that? He’s watching “Peppa Pig”
like, yo, she ain’t drippin’. She ain’t drippin’ like me. Of course, New York City
has its share of hypebeasts. But it also has people
who flex on a budget. We went downtown to
check out the NYC Drip. Don’t adjust your screens,
it’s not an overcast day– I’m sorry, that’s just the drip. Yo, it’s your boy Desus Nice. That’s right,
I’m The Kid Mero. We’re here in the swagger
of capital of the world, whether you like it or not. That’s right,
we’re here in Soho and we’re asking people
about their drip. Speaking about the drip–
retro Jordan Ones, expensive? 300. Margielas. Margielas, how much? 600. The purse is Dior, vintage. Vintage Dior! 400 bucks. Sunglasses are vintage Gucci. Gucci, whoo. And so is this just like
an everyday outfit for you? Yeah it’s just casual school. This is Rick Owens. Rick Owens, OK. What’s the retail on that? 600. I bought it in euros, though. Oh you bought it in euros? Euros, stupid! Extra flex. I see you got the Sauconys
on, yes how much they run? I don’t know. You don’t know? What about the shorts,
about how much do they run? About 20? I don’t know. No, that’s pretty reasonable. What about the shirt? He went to Stuyvesant
University. A university that doesn’t exist. How do I know? It could have been something
in Maine, I don’t know. We’re here right
now with the number one draft pick for the New
York Knicks next season. Now, is there any
athletes or celebrities that you see how they
dress and you’re like, I want to dress like them. I’m like, you know,
the Jay Z’s cool. And Drake too. I like even– you
guys really stick out. I love your cap, man. The shirt is dripping. Swagu. Is there any clothing
line you would never, no matter how much money
given to you, wear? Well I’m a model, so I
gotta watch what I say. Oh so we could be models? What do you mean we could be? Hey, why not man? Plus size-plus, dark skin, yo. Wait, which one
of us is plus-size? This is a staple piece
that I just always have on, just so simple. Look at the
detail here– these are front-facing diamonds. Beautiful, the
setting is immaculate. This is just a beautiful
piece right here. Just something
subtle, not too much. Know what I’m saying? We’re breaking down
outfits, breaking down, you know, casual
looks for the day. I see– OK, all
right, all right. [INTERPOSING VOICES]
Flex on ’em off top! Earrings I got from Home
Depot, they’re like $3. Comfortable t-shirts,
God’s Bangalore’s. If you’ve got words on
the back of your shirt, you’re killing it. And especially if this
shit is in Japanese, stupid. Socks with
Birkenstocks, yes or no? I’m going to give an HN– hell no. No– fucking up the aesthetic. Ooh– the F word,
but he’s right. What about the hair? WOMAN: I did it myself. [BELL RINGING] Save that money. The immigrant child
in me is like, yes! I’m an immigrant
child as well. From where? Jamaica. She already know
what it is, that’s why she start with the saving,
know what I’m saying? What’s going to
be the biggest trend this summer that we
should get on early? Do not follow the trend. Do not follow the trend. Pow. This is my bag, I
actually designed this. This is the zip right here. Got you, got you. I charge 300, it’s not bad. All right, 300? How much you gonna charge us? I’ll charge, uh, 250. Oh I know I didn’t [INTERPOSING VOICES] Drip is natural, you either
born with it or you’re not. – All right?
– Fuck out of here. Drip drip. [LAUGHTER]
