What was seen cannot be unseen...

Sunday was a nice relaxing day for me.  I decided to go to Starbucks, because I wanted a change in the coffee shop scenery.  And you know me.  I looove me some people watching.

But I didn't expect this.  Not at all.

I'm sitting here, typing on my laptop and sipping in a macchiato, when a dude walks in.  He sits down, opens up a newspaper, and just starts chillin.

How is that blog-worthy?

He was wearing one of these...

Um...
It's called a morph suit.  You can see more (and even buy) at morphsuits.com.  They're basically head to toe spandex suits that you can not only see through, but drink through.

He scared the living bejeezus out of the baristas when they finally noticed him.  After a few seconds of awkward conversation his friends walk in.


All in all, there were about 7 people (men and women) in morphsuits in that starbucks, drinking water, chatting it up, and performing minor shenanigans.  Eventually one of the local news channels showed up and interviewed them.

I might actually be on tv.  If you see the confused looking patron in the corner, that was me.

After a few google searches, it looks like morphsuits are becoming mildly popular.  Weird, but popular.

It's like Blue Man Group.  But green.
For about 6 seconds, I even considered getting one.  It only lasted 6 seconds because of 2 really big reasons.

- I'm about 230lbs.  I'd look like Thundergut Johnson in one of those things...  Maybe once I drop this last bit of weight...

- These costumes leave nothing to the imagination.  You can see every bulge, bump, ridge etc on these people.  The girls were cold & pointy.  You could tell which guys were packing crayolas versus kielbasas in their pants.  I don't think the world really wants to see my junk...



Will this fad catch on?  Will we see legions of anons in morphsuits, doing flashmobs or committing various forms of shenanigans?  Only time will tell.
Please Share it! :)

cool. I could use one just to see people´s reaction... or for Halloween.

Sam said...

Wow I hope not!

Astronomy Pirate said...

If there is a God, please don't let this happen. Also, I pretty much blame "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" for this. Just because one guy was funny in a greenman costume on TV doesn't mean you and your friends will be funny in real life.

Janez said...

oh come on haha who ever invented that KUDOS mate xD

becca said...

wow they looklike a box of crayons too cool

Kelly said...

I wonder what they get out of that. It's like those people who like dressing up as animals and fucking each other with their costumes on. I think they're called "furries" or something like that.

People like this- "morph-suities"- really want that ol' attention, eh? If I was caught in the wrong mood, and they come up to me and started acting goofy, I'd probably break a baseball bat over their heads for being so stupid. Then, while they're knocked out cold, I'd bend over and take a giant poop in their mouths just to see if it would seep in through the suit. I would be given a medal of honor, for my efforts, for sure. :)

Jewels said...

I had never seen these suits before "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" so you can blame Philly natives gone hollywood for that craze. I think it's terrifying to think of them catching on-especially in crime circuits-though criminals seem to be too stupid to realize you can't be identified inside of one.

I can see how they would cause a stir in large groups but I've seen them here and there around my home...I agree though, I don't want to see your twig and berries!

Alphabeta said...

It's all about Green Man!
(Charlie from Always Sunny in Philadelphia).
I see Astronomy Pirate got in there before me.

CandleintheDark said...

That is a bizaare fad. I kind think it is cool though. Be anon and fuck around

Asty said...

no way thats real life

squatlo said...

I think seeing cold and pointy women might be fun, if only for the camel-toeish possibilities...

But I'm not putting that shit on unless I'm robbing a liquor store near the freeway.

mac-and-me said...

hahahaha oh wow

Choirchick22 said...

If I wasn't so self concious about my weight I would sure get one. What a great way to scare the hell out of people for a good laugh! :D

Gucci Mama said...

I think I speak for everyone when I say it's high time we see a photograph of you in one of these.

Autumnforest said...

That was so hilarious! Yeah, the show offs! I would think it should be illegal because they're making themselves unidentifiable like a car without a license plate. I hope they don't go to the bank those. They're likely to get tackled by the guard, although I have no idea where they'd put their cash.

D4 said...

It's surprising how much I want one now. It may have been a mistake to post that link..

Christophe said...

I've seen some folks with these around. Although, you could pull it off and not be embarrassed because no one can see your face. Thundergut could be your superhero alterego.

Thundergut! The superhero everyone cringes at!

That cat pic had me lol'ing.

Meghan Moran said...

Morphsuits are here to stay!

Questions said...

Kind of cool. Didn't know you could drink coffee through them. Not sure I'd wear one though.

Michelangelo said...

But i laughed at the cat :D

Kicking Rocks said...

Greenman started it all!

Con Queso said...

LOL, it's anon! I don't think this anon thing will catch the popularity it had during the scientology thing ever again.

Malkavian said...

Cool suits, remember me of NoobSaibot from MK if it was totally black

Tony Van Helsing said...

Might have been a team of superheroes.

The Simple Dude said...

As much as I enjoy it when people look at my balls, I'm not sure I'd like people to LITERALLY see them blue.

Rachel Neilson said...

Haha, this guy at a party was wearing one and nobody knew he was the whole night. We never did find out.

Dale said...

haha...I hope these never come into fashion. I can why it would catch your attention in a coffee shop. Nice post

-Dale
Thx for your comments on my retro pin up one too.Funny :)

consuela bananahammoc said...

Dang. Hairy balls.

G said...

I'm so tempted to get one of these for work and the next casual cloths day lol

Wiccy said...

They look so stupid, but at the same time kinda cool. If I had one, I wouldn't wear it in public tho.

Drab Maestro said...

People could totally rob banks way easy with this shit, lol

A Beer for the Shower said...

Yep, thanks to Charlie from Always Sunny (which is hilarious, btw) every idiot thinks they can buy one of these suits and be greenman. It really loses its affect when you see 7 of these clowns together.

THUNDERCAT832 said...

Since Im a Fed Up Sista, I would have been freaked out to the point where I would have told them something.

'what the fuck is all that jazz about?'

yeah, that's pretty much what I would have asked lol

Cosmo 'The Ass-man' Kramer said...

wataaaaaaaaaaatttttttttttttttttttaaaaaaaaaaatttttt

jillsmo said...

DO NOT LIKE

Shutterbug said...

I don't get it? What is the whole point of those suits? I would never wear that!

ExplosiveSex said...

Omg, GREEN MAN
Seriously, Sunny might be the funniest show on tv right now.
I might buy a suit.

The Reckmonster said...

Yeah...pass on the morph suits. But SERIOUSLY - do you know how long I stared at that cat's balls???????? I am nearly pissing myself laughing at this post!

Fashion Mom said...

haha, so funny xxx

ResCogitans said...

damn i wish i'd known about them a few weeks ago - i'd have got a white one for my snowboarding holiday :)

On My Soapbox said...

Hopefully bank robbers won't get ahold of these....

hed said...

What the shit? And why??

PS-The cat picture. Dying with laughter.

hed hed above water

Victorica said...

HAHA, thats amazing.

Xenototh said...

Oh the fun I could have with one of these, although I would feel like I was some lame background dancer. Lol.

Anonymous said...

i bought a black one today. im thinking of going out in it. id cover up a bit. id wear shorts and t shirt over it. its a good laugh.

Vanessa said...

Oh no! Ugly junk bump! Seriously here the fad is for kids to wear them to local hockey games.

Even worse is if you look up on Wikipedia and see how much the company that makes them is worth!
