How many times has it happened to you? You decide to go to the beach on a sunny afternoon. It is a spontaneous plan. You pack everything – towels, food, sunscreen, the baby – only to reach the beach and realize you have forgotten your swimming costumes! Singapore-based BBH Asia-Pacific copywriter and associate creative director, Douglas Hamilton has invented what he believes is the perfect solution to the problem! Called the ‘ThingThong’, it is basically a dual-purpose flip-flop which doubles as a thong-style swimsuit for those emergency situations. The slipper’s Y-straps are adjustable and elastic. Basically, just slip it on and the “slipper” part of it will cover your privates! There isn’t much other than the thin straps to protect your nether areas. We are not exactly sure how many guys are going to be clamoring to get their hands on one of these barely-there creations. After all, it takes a brave man to be seen in a thong, and a braver woman to be seen with this man!
The ThingThong by Douglas Hamilton is currently just a concept. It isn’t available for purchase.
