I loved it I was like WTH! But figured it was a fools day thing- should leave it up to keep the people away who are here to hype up their ebay ads!

My wife works for a LUX. owned company and when I showed her this she was pissed. First thing that she thought was that LUX acquired this site and changed the name. She then commented on how LUX will try to change everything about the site. I let her rant for a couple of minutes, then I logged on to the o-review and showed her. She looked at me with a kinda stunned look, then she smiled and called me a f*(%!@G a$$
It was probably as funny as my reaction to this April fools joke.
She has seen them take over companies and make all sorts of changes. So far she is under the belief that they have no major changes in mind for Oakley. She has been speaking to her Oakley rep about this and the rep feels the same.

Nice one Dann. I almost fell from my chair. We are a day ahead here, so I was not thinking about April Fools. You got me alright.

This is the second year in a row I have been fooled.

Last year April fools day my wife was outside with my son playing with a ball. While I was in the house(probably on this site) she dumped some broken window glass she got from a friend on the ground beside my truck. She unrolled my window and put the baseball on my passenger seat. She yelled into the house for me to come quick. I get outside and see the mess and of course get mad. As I get closer to the truck my son told me what REALLY happened. She still reminds me that she got me good!!! One day I will get her.......hopefully!

"YOU ARE BIDDING ON A FIRST GENERATION OAKLEY X-MEN CYCLOPS PAIR OF GLASSES. THESE ARE THE SAME AS JAMES MARSDEN WORE IN THE MOVIES. THESE ARE EXTREMELY VALUABLE BECAUSE THE SEREAL NUMBER ON THE LEFT EARPIECE STARTS WITH AN X TO INDICATE X-MEN. NO OTHER OAKLEYS HAVE THAT. I AM ALSO INCLUDING REPLACEMENT NOSE AND EAR PIECES TO ENSURE PRECISE FIT."


April fools? hahaha!

Classic, vintage AF page. Brings me back to the old days when Jim was in the cockpit and Oakley was Monstrous...

I'll have a translation up tomorrow. It isn't terribly revealing, but there may be some interest in the choices of words for a modern company in AD 996 era vocabulary. I could have cheated and used modern Icelandic, but where's the fun in that.

Over on Instagram, the joke was this post:
