Karl Lagerfeld has given us a gift we didn’t even know we were waiting for – the Karl video game, in which the iconic designer appears as a sprightly Tokidoki cartoon. The objective is to try and remove his signature sunglasses – not an easy task thanks to the designer’s stealthy, ninja-style moves.
Cartoon Karl also offers disparaging remarks after unsuccessful attempts, such as, “You really need glasses”, and “What a shame”. If you’re too slow, he taps his foot and takes pictures with his camera, but his most cutting comments are left for when you fail at the game completely – to which he says, “Karl has no more time for you.”
The online game is part of a month-long partnership with Lagerfeld’s French eyewear distributor Optic 2000 and French residents are able to claim prizes if they triumph over Lagerfeld.
Only French residents can claim prizes, but anyone with a computer or smartphone can try their luck at the game.
