Kim Kardashian entertained and amused her fans on Friday, as she kept the promo wheels turning for her underwear brand by revealing a customized Lamborghini Urus covered in ‘cozy’ SKIMS fabric.

‘OK guys, look at my new Lambo Urus, it’s the SKIMS one you guys, this is all the cozy fabric for SKIMS,’ she said in a video, which appeared to be parked at her Hidden Hills home.

However, some fans were quick to post hilarious reactions to the car made out of the white fluffy material, with one user comparing to the ‘Dog Van’ used in the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

‘Harry and Lloyd did this first,’ one user wrote, with a still from the movie, while another joked: ‘It’s already been done Kim.’ 

Another tweet read: ‘Is that car made of towels? What do you do when it rains??? It must smell like a wet dog, man alive.’ 

However, other uses criticized the stunt as ‘wasteful’ with one person writing: Just so we’re clear… Some people can’t afford clothes. Yet, here you’re dressing your car? Not funny one single bit.’

In an interview with Vogue, Kim says she was compelled to start the company in order to offer more shapewear options to consumers.

‘Overall, I really just wanted to give people options when getting dressed,’ she said.

‘From innovative shapewear that you can wear every day to the comfiest underwear that perfectly moulds to your body — I wanted to create a brand that could be relied on as a true solution for how people dress today.’

‘In doing this, it was especially important that we were size-inclusive and offered a range of colors.’

It was through her own experience DIY-ing shapewear that Kim realized the business potential.

‘I used to cut up and sew different styles of shapewear together to create the silhouette I wanted because I could never find the shape I was looking for.’

‘Other brands would either flatten my curves, pinch into my skin or roll down. I would also dye pieces with tea bags to match my skin tone as there was such a limited offering of colors on the market.’
