When you buy a bottle of booze, what do you do with it? I hope you didn't say drink it, because that's about as a cool as this guy. See, if you want to awesome in 2011--and who doesn't want to be awesome in 2011?--you need to stop drinking from bottles and start covering them in diamonds and wearing them around your neck. That's what the great chain innovator T-Pain is doing in the this picture, and that's what you should be doing. Whatever T-Pain does with chains is what everyone should do with chains. He's the Beatles of wearing large, shiny objects around his neck. We can all just hope to be half as awesome as he is.

Study them, love them and then start figuring out how you're going to make millions of dollars so you can get a few of your own.
