(UNOFFICIAL) Chrome Michigan helmet

Submitted by Blue Balls Afire on July 18th, 2018 at 10:18 PM

I don't know who this YouTuber is but he popped up on my feed.  He built a mock-up of a chrome Michigan helmet.  This is not sanctioned in any way by the school (as far as I know) so it's not happening in a game (as far as I know).  It's just an interesting take on what a chrome Michigan helmet might look like, so I thought I'd share.  Don't shoot the messenger.

There are a lot of comments on that video from people who love that hideous thing.  They simply have to be feeders to the stream, rather than actual fans of Michigan.  That thing sucks donkey ass.

You guys are all just freaking out because you want it to be taboo to touch the helmet. This chrome helmet is sick. The youtube comment section is full of people saying they aren't Michigan fans but this helmet is amazing. I don't want to see the team wear it but other than that it is a sweet ass helmet.

Good God. This is the football equivalent of putting a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

This falls under former Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's famous definition of obscenity: "I know it when I see it."

Boo this man! Boo!

Seriously, it doesn't do anything for me. Overall, it doesn't pop. Then, the colors aren't "right". That's not maize and that's not our blue. It wouldn't fit with the jersey, you'd have to change the jersey.

I have no issue with people bring up alternative unis but this one doesn't look right to me.

I know everyone in here hates that helmet and I agree its off. This is one that they should have went back to the drawing board and did again. The concept is cool as shit but the maize is off and the matte just doesn't pop at all. 

They should have done the whole thing in chrome or tried reversing the matte. They could have done the blue in chrome and the maize in matte.

It's a helmet only worn in Bolivia. That should tell you just how bad it looked. But the guy hosting literally would but a nut in it. That is how much he loved it.
