Someone has made a bag that makes you look like a LEGO man, and you definitely want one

Everything is awesome

That’s it – fashion has peaked.

It’s remarkable really – given the enduring popularity of the world’s most popular toy brick – that it’s taken this long for some pop culture visionary to design a bag that makes whoever’s holding it look like they’re a LEGO person, but better late than never, right?

The bag in question is the handiwork of students Junho Lee and Hyun Chul Choi from the New York School of Visual Arts, and mostly just resembles a bog-standard LEGO-branded carrier bag.

What elevates this bag above the rest, though, is the famous yellow LEGO hands painted onto the sides. You need long sleeves to nail the illusion, but when the bag’s picked up it (kind of) looks as though it’s being carried by a LEGO figure; a giant LEGO figure getting a lot of strange looks from passers by.

This person couldn’t resist hyperbole.

It looks as though the bag is just in concept stage at the moment, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see them in LEGO stores everywhere one day if the design gets enough traction.

Hopefully we’ve made it clear that we think the LEGO handbag (geddit) is a very good idea. A much better idea, it must be said, than making a creepy life-sized LEGO man with human skin.

That’s just messed up.
