Franklin Rockefeller, a self-proclaimed hype beast from Brentwood, spends thousands of dollars on high end clothing each month. Franklin doesn’t work, despite being 18 and living with his parents.  

So how does he pay for such extravagant items? He makes his rich parents pay for it. We interviewed Franklin, who was decked out in a recently purchased Supreme crewneck which was $850, Gucci jeans which were a whopping $1,200, and a pair of Yeezy Boost 350’s, valued at $320. He paid resale price for all these items.   

Franklin had this to say about his questionable spending habits: “I’m just using my dad’s credit card. It’s not like I’m spending real money.” When asked about why he made the decision to buy a $850 Supreme box logo sweatshirt, he responded by saying “If I spend more money on something, it’ll make me seem cooler than I really am.”  

The next so-called hype beast we interviewed was Jackson Carnegie. Jackson is another unemployed hype beast who values name brands over his father’s bank account. Jackson said, “Wearing these expensive clothes validates my existence and boosts my low self-confidence” 

The conclusion we drew from these interviews was that young adults spend money on expensive attire to make themselves feel better. Experts say that this trend is known as “self-esteem boosting consumerism,” where people spend lots of money to compensate for the things they lack inside.
