Something we never thought we’d see, would be Kanye West frolicking around with pugs. Especially not on a calendar.
However, the team at Meet the Pugs have made that possible.
While Kanye West officially didn’t have anything to do with the 2014 calendar, the clever team behind it have superimposed his face on to 12 retro style photos of models posing with their puggy pals. And it is rather hilarious.
The guys from Meet the Pugs, based in Barcelona, launched a Kick Starter campaign in November with an aim to raise enough money to produce the calendar and send one to everyone who has supported the cause. The campaign gained a huge following and managed to raise an astonishing $22,706. Unfortunately, as the Kick Starter campaign ended on the 15th December, the calendars are now sold out!
As the end of the year is approaching, this would have made an excellent gift or treat for yourself, and would almost certainly raise a smile when it caught your eye every morning. Other than the pugs, our favourite aspect of the calendar has to be the classic Kanye quotes that go with each picture; including gems like, “My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live” and “I’d be lying to myself if I didn’t say I’m a genius”.
If you are a bit disappointed that this calendar is no longer available and you would have loved to get your paws on one, then fear not. Meet the Pugs also have a fabulous online shop where you can buy each photo from the Kanye calendar as an individual print, or as a tote bag, a mug, or even a cushion.
So, there’s no excuse not to have a very Kanye Pugmas!
