Been traveling for 22 days in North Africa, Middle East, SE Asia... the bazaars in every country have featured knockoff Fortnite t-shirts / swag.

Didn't realize the truly global scale of the FN phenomenon until I saw them next to fake Louis Vuitton handbags.

And FN was released in 2017! The only other (recent) brand I've seen with this much international cache at the bazaars is Supreme.

(This was $10... didn't make the purchase though. You can still find it on the streets of Cairo somewhere)
