The DadBag Fanny Pack Will Give You An Instant ‘dad Bod’

Too funny!

Getting a “dad bod” requires intense discipline and rigorous training. And by “training,” we mean sitting on the couch and eating chicken wings. But if you don’t have the willpower required to skip the gym everyday but still want to rock a dad bod from time to time, then we have the perfect accessory for those of you!

London designer Albert Pukies has designed the DadBag, a fanny pack that has the image of a pot belly on it, which means you can walk around and look like you are wearing shorts two sizes too small for your beer gut. (And from the looks of the photo below, you can stash a cold one in this convenient fanny pack!)


Yep, that’s right. We live in a world where it is not only cool to be slightly overweight, but fanny packs are also a thing again. Somewhere in the future, 40-year-old me is looking back fondly on 2017.

Pukies designed the bag because, for some weird reason, he has always wanted a dad bod but didn’t want to actually, you know, gain weight. First world problems.

“I made the dadbag because I’m desperate to have dad bod but I’m also very concerned about the health risks associated with it,” Pukies told Bored Panda. “The solution is quite simple, a bumbag with a proper dad belly printed on it. Now I can put on a dad bod whenever I feel like it and even store my valuables in it.”

Well, that was a humble-brag if we’ve ever heard one. Pukies is looking for partners and already has a series of these fanny packs with different skin tones and varying amounts of body hair. Yay diversity!

Anyway, the internet freaked out about this (because, of course it did). Bored Panda’s post about the bag has more than 16,000 shares and more than 10,000 comments. However, it’s one thing for a social media post about a product to go viral. But will anybody actually buy a dadbag?

Well, some people thought it was a fun idea.

Others were, well, not as enthusiastic.

If anything, it would make a great gag gift.

The biggest complaint on the internet seems to be that buying a fanny pack is the lazy way around being lazy (i.e., “I had a dad bod before it was cool.” “Some of us had to work hard to get that gut, which involved lots of not working hard.”) The natural order of things is for people to be out of shape and buy accessories to make them look fit, not the other way around.

Anyway, will you buy a dadbag? Well, you’ll have to wait a bit if you do want to get one, because Pukies is still looking for production partners.

So while we are waiting for the dadbag to hit stores, here is a list of the unhealthiest restaurants in America. We think most people read that article to know where not to go, but that is why those people are stuck buying a hairy fanny pack—not sporting a real belly that hangs over the top of their pants. Oh, and if you already have a dad bod, but want to lose the dad bod so you can then wear a bag that makes it look like you have a dad bod, here are some weight loss tips. This is a judgement-free zone.
