Need a fresh look for Friday night? Well look no further my friends, because some inventive women in Taiwan have discovered that a plastic bag doubles as a super sexy leotard. Women have been posting selfies clad in this hot new item to social media, which, naturally, has led to American news outlets poking fun at the “trend” because people in other places in the world are so wacky and silly and look at them with their silly bags and their wacky ideas!
It all started when Belle Xie, a model, and Teddy Captain, a fictional character (no really… that’s what her Facebook page says. But as far as I can tell this fictional character is physically embodied by a real, live woman) tried on some plastic bags for size (no really, they wanted to see if their bods would fit in the bags). Their bods did, in fact, fit in the bags, and thus an Instagram phenomenon was born.
Cue Miley Cyrus plastic bag appropriation.
