After being depicted on South Park, Marc Jacobs decided to take the cartoon version of himself a step forward and began selling the 'Muscle Man Marc' doll, a toy version of the iconic designer.

The sales of the doll will go toward NYU Cancer Institute, showing that the designer really is putting the parody to work. Sure to enthuse more than a few fashionistas, this pint-sized Jacobs is an exciting debut by the quirky New York based fashion name. Known for selling offbeat items, Jacobs and his audacious move shouldn't come as a huge surprise to fans.

It's always good to see big names exhibiting a sense of humor. Putting a potentially insulting parody into something great is yet another reason why Marc Jacobs is such a beloved designer.
