It's official: Manny Pacquiao is hipster fodder.

(via Vinyl Pulse)

I always knew that Manny Pacquiao making the transition to designer vinyl would be inevitable. Thank you, MINDstyle.

Note the post date of the VP announcement... I wonder if somebody out there actually thought this was an April Fool's prank?
This summer, MINDstyle will be producing the P.0.P. (Pride of the Philippines) collection, which features the unexpected pairing of two world-class icons. One so happens to be the most famous mouse in the world, the other being the greatest pound for pound boxer in the world. No other than Mickey Mouse and Manny Pacquiao. For those of you who don’t know, MS are huge fans of "”Pacman” and plan on turning him into vinyl. The other half of the P.O.P. collection is Mickey Mouse with an attitude.

Oh, who am I kidding? Of course somebody out there actually thought this was an April Fool's prank.

P.o.P. Collection: Pound For Pound T-ShirtAnd to prove that they were extra-serious, they made a T-shirt.

And should you wish to behold what the Pacman may look like rendered in vinyl collectible form, here he is.
