I always knew you'd be famous one day

American Eagle Outfitters is offering shoppers at its soon-to-open Times Square flagship a chance to see their face in bright lights.

After making a purchase, customers will be invited to pose in a mini photo studio for an experience the company is calling “15 Seconds of Fame.” Moments after, the customer’s photo will be projected onto 15,000 sq. ft. of LCD screens (25-stories high) outside the store for all of Times Square to see.

Customers can also write a quick message with their name and hometown to accompany their image. Since there is no minimum purchase and shoppers can participate as many times they want, I expect this will be a big hit, especially among younger shoppers.

I can just see their excited Facebook statuses now …
