From the Marbles - NASCAR

No sport offers up a more bewildering array of souvenir crap memorabilia than NASCAR, and They Make It digs deep into the corners of the Internet to bring all that strangeness to light. Today: the finest in high-quality eyewear.

Item: The Estrada sunglasses from the Tony Stewart Burger King commercials, available through an ebay auction.

The deal: This officially qualifies as the creepiest They Make It post -- hell, the creepiest post, period -- I've ever done. I'll explain why in a moment.

Anyway, these are the fabled "Estrada" sunglasses from Tony Stewart's bizarre but undeniably fascinating Burger King commercials. They can be yours too, provided you win an ebay auction for one of the 150 pairs. However, please note that these are not actual sunglasses and should not be used as such. You can use 'em to attract the opposite sex at racetracks all the livelong day, though.

Now for the creepy part -- and I swear this is true -- as I was putting the final touches on this post, a UPS truck rolls up. The deliveryman brings a small package to the door. Inside the package was this. I kid you not. About the only thing that would've made it creepier was if the Burger King himself had delivered the shades, but no -- it was just a plain ol' UPS dude. Still, I may be on to something ... next post, I'm writing about a winning lottery ticket atop a basket of Five Guys burgers and Chick-Fil-A sandwiches.

But now I feel like Estrada is watching me ...

The hat tip: Estrada, of course! Plus Burger King and their crack ad agency. Got some NASCARiana for us to check out? You'll have to go high to top this, but give it a shot at jay.busbee@yahoo.com. Estrada!
