15 Skrillex Moments In The New Marc Jacobs Menswear Campaign

A serious ranking from least to most Skrillex-esque.

This is the fall/winter 2013 Marc Jacobs menswear campaign.

Deliberately disheveled and just a little out-of-focus, it's the latest in a long line of ads shot by Juergen Teller (whose campaign-themed collaboration with Jacobs now dates back over fifteen years' worth of imagery).

You might be thinking "hey, isn't that Skrillex on the far left in the campaign ad above?"

Or, you know, you might not be thinking that. It's OK either way. But assuming you are wondering if Marc Jacobs likes his dubstep greasy, here's an analysis of the campaign and its mostest Skrillex-est moments:


14. This is just a manbag. It's not even remotely reminiscent of Skrillex.

He only carries a beat-up Carhartt backpack with badges pinned on it. (I have no idea if this is actually true or not.)

Skrillex says no.


Well, he's shrugging. But that's as good as we're going to get. He was up until 5 a.m. this morning dropping beats or whatever it is the cool DJs do these days, and he's very tired.


11. Here goes: no points for the model's resemblance but this dank, graffiti-covered wall looks like it could be part of an underground club venue or something.

9. Granted, Skrillex probably doesn't like the buffet at Chinese restaurants much (who does?!), but this model is trying.

There's definitely some shades of Skrillex about this hairdo.


7. This could be his pre-prom photo. If he went to prom, that is, because he might be too cool for that mainstream shit.

(His date will be down in a minute — she's just re-applying her thick, thick black eyeliner. And no, he didn't buy a corsage because really?)


5. I asked a friend who's actually seen Skrillex in concert if the resemblance was legitimate. She replied, "oh God yes, the hair and the pasty complexion and also the disgruntled expression."

4. She then added, "you might also want to note that [the models] look like their voices haven't cracked yet. LIKE SKRILLEX AHEM."

1. And so voila, a veritable Skrillex doppelganger, in the suit he'd wear to meet your folks for the first time, say, for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.

The conversation would go as follows:

Your Dad says, "so there Sonny, I hear you're a musician?"

Skrillex says, "I spin, yeah."

Your Dad says, "Aren't you worried you'll get dizzy one of these days?"

Your Mom laughs nervously.

And then there's an awkward silence for the rest of the meal apart from when everyone asks for a doggie bag because it's actually impossible to finish the cheesecake you get for dessert in one sitting.
