See ‘Patriot Act’s’ Hasan Minaj Remove Supreme
For the most recent episode of his program Patriot Act, speaker Hasan Minhaj took a deep dive into the origins of Supreme and the financial investment history of the Carlyle Group, which owns 50 percent of the brand name. Take a look at the episode above.
The comic goes over the development of Supreme’s box logo design (utilizing Highsnobiety’s video on the topic, no less) and described the brand name’s limited-supply and need company design.
On a darker note, he exposed the Carlyle Group’s military financial investments, which he connects to Saudi Arabia’s participation in the Yemeni civil war
Minhaj completes the episode by dropping a minimal run of now-sold-out tees that turn the Supreme box logo design into the mottos “Defense Specialist,” “Corporation,” “Personal Equity,” “Oil and Gas,” and “Barbara Kruger Was Right.”
