A popular clothing store has an interesting take on the University of Minnesota's mascot.
H&M is selling some Minnesota apparel that features a Chipmunk as the basketball mascot. The oversized sweatshirt depicting the Minnesota Chipmunks, aka the "Upper Midwest Champions," is for sale for $29.99.
Twitter user @taylorstrege tweeted about the Minnesota Chipmunks apparel, noting someone sent her pictures of multiple items, taken at H&M in Austria.
"I'm ... very confused," she tweeted.
It turns out this is a global clothing line available at all H&M stores, because they don't have the rights to sell University of Minnesota or other college apparel, according to Twitter user @maddierobbinss, who says she's an H&M manager. The college-themed apparel is part of the clothing line's back-to-school vibe.
The tweet from @taylorstrege, posted just before 8:30 p.m. Monday, has since gone viral (at least among Minnesotans). It has garnered thousands of likes and plenty of comments from people who have seen similarly confusing Minnesota-themed clothing across the pond.
