Trivia

  • The description and the glasses themselves refer to the 2008 news story about 16 year old Corey Worthington, a young Australian man from Melbourne who held a 500-guest alcohol-driven party at his parents' house while they were away. During the initial report, Corey calmly answered some of the questions, but in response to being asked by the reporter to take his sunglasses off, he refused repeatedly. When the reporter asked why, he responded, "Because. They're famous."
