Father John Misty Parodies Kanye with 'Life of Padre' Tour Merch
Father John Misty loves a good prank. Whether it's covering Taylor Swift by way of Lou Reed, playing bizarre, rambling live shows and super inappropriate lullabyes. His latest, though is one of the best troll jobs yet. According to the former Misty, he loved Kanye West's Life of Pablo Cali DeWitt-designed tour merch so much that he just straight up copied it for his own gear.
The items allegedly include "Life of Padre" t-shirts ($25), a hat that says simply, "Padre" ($25) in the same gothic script as 'Ye's merch, as well as a long-sleeve ($40) a a hoodie ($50) with the holy phrase and the words "Juan" and "Misty" on opposite arms.

The collection also includes higher-end items as well, such as a pair of "Misty" rose quartz crystal earrings ($45). "You DO want the energy of THESE crystals 1000% locally sourced in L.A.," he promised. All those items are available for pre-order now... or are they?

Worst case scenario, you can order some of his other offbeat gear, including HONEYBEAR album cover leggings, "Innocence" by Misty perfume or an $8 Skull Mariachi pin. A spokesperson for Misty could not be reached for comment about when the Padre merch will ship.
