It’s 2020, the world is crumbling and a KFC/Crocs footwear collab has sold out in minutes.

Crocs, already considered an effective method of birth control by some, has upped the ante with its new KFC scented footwear.

That’s right, crocs that smell like KFC. They sold out immediately.

Here they are:

It’s not a joke.

The KFC crocs, originally released for $US59, are already reselling on Ebay for $US500.

The bad (or is it good?) news is that KFC has already said they won’t be re-releasing a second batch.

In Markets…

Fears that a second COVID-19 wave will crimp global economic recovery is impacting on market sentiment going into August.

In Europe, Britain imposed a tougher lockdown in parts of northern England and Spain saw a surge in new infections.

US deaths from COVID-19 appear to be rising at their fastest rate since early June.

In Australia — where Victoria has just announced a ‘State of Disaster’ in attempts to kill a resurgent second wave — the market is off to a tough start to the new month, with the benchmark ASX200 down 24 points, or 0.4 per cent, to 5,900 by about 11am EST.
