Someone needs to get a shoot of that FLCL character with the glasses when she demonstrates that they are fake.

Why did the name change? Brainy specs was a fine name.

I'd actually understand this one; Brainy Specs gives the impression that the glasses are directly related to smart people. This trope is pretty much Glasses Do Nothing. I think they should've called it that, actually, since this is basically Goggles Do Nothing, only with glasses.

Possible split:

Over in You Know That Thing Where, this discussion suggests a split: Glasses are used as a cue that someone is smart, and when someone uses glasses to LOOK smart (This trope). The suggestion was to rename this trope to something like Faux Eyes or the like, and use Brainy Specs for when the character wearing glasses is the smart guy.
