Krispy kreme GRASS flip flops?

So, I was reading today's issue of "inTouch weekly", and i came across a short article about how Krispy Kreme the doughnut chain, created a flip flop that lined on the inside with real live grass! I thought this was a joke at first but apparently they were serious about this flip flop. They have questioned over a thousand UK urbanties about stress, and most felt they were stressed due to the fact that they have lost contact with mother nature. Thats how they got the idea for this shoe:
this lets city folk, literally walk on grass. Each flip flop takes three weeks to grow with over 5,000 blades of grass. With maitenence the grass will live up four months. What a funny idea, watering and occasionally trimming your flip flops! this makes me think of "chia pets" a whole lot:

That's crazy, maybe brilliant?. It makes me think of Chia Pets too. I think the grass would feel gross and flat after walking on it so much though.
