Well, we've found it - the ultimate in accessories we never asked for and never wanted.

Introducing the 'Dadbag', a bum bag designed to give its wearer an instant dadbod - in all its hairy glory.

Take a look:

If you're wondering where on earth an idea like this comes from, then wonder no longer! The story behind the bag is a simple one. London-based designer, Albert Pukies, had a dream: he wanted a dadbod - without the downsides.

"I made the Dadbag because I'm desperate to have a dad bod but I'm also very concerned about the health risks associated with it," Pukies wrote on a post for Bored Panda. "The solution is quite simple, a bum bag 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."

Achievement unlocked, Pukies, achievement unlocked.


If - like this ingenious chap - you're also longing for a dadbod, a body type summed up as: "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time", then these bum bags are quite the investment. They're not just aesthetically - ahem - accurate, they're versatile, too.

Along with being multi-purpose - handy for stashing your keys or your mobile or your afternoon cold one - they also come in quite the range.

For example, you can go with a classic "Allen", a sunburnt "Wolfgang" or a particularly hairy "Sherman" if that's more to your liking. Basically, when it comes to the Dadbag, you do you.

Sadly - or happily - the Dadbag isn't yet available for purchase. Pukies is currently seeking "production partners" to make his dadbod dream a reality, and is hoping to go into mass production "soon". 

Given dadbods continue to be oh-so on trend, he may not have to wait too long. Mattel released dadbod Ken earlier this year, while the "hairy chest swimsuit" allowing women to rock a dadbod at the beach had the internet saying "But ... why?" just a few months ago.

We can only imagine what dadbod-related paraphernalia they'll come up with next!
