This Versace T-shirt might be the worst World Cup souvenir of all time. And it’s $690.

Attending the World Cup? Don’t forget to dress the part! If you’re already spending thousands of dollars on plane tickets, game tickets and hotel rooms, why not add on this $690 Versace-designed commemorative World Cup T-shirt to the list?

Oh yeah, because MINE EYES! THAT IS HIDEOUS! But also hilarious. Here’s how Versace’s Web site describes the Donatella Versace-created “Versace Loves Brazil” shirt:

“A brand new Versace baroque print is created using the colors of a Brazilian carnival, decorated with repeated images footballs and flowers. Gold chains and leopard print add luxury, while silhouettes of football players connect the glamour of Versace with the sportsmanship of Brazil. At the heart of the t-shirt is the iconic Medusa head, with a special Versace rock twist.”

Oh, I see now…
Just kidding. I’m pretty sure the only person who could pull this off is Mad Decent rapper Riff Raff.
