People Are Loving This Singlet Being Sold In Bali

Australians have been travelling to Bali to get drunk, sunburnt and take Insta-worthy pictures for decades.

Like Thailand, it's also a place to get cheap clothing, whether that be sarongs, shirts, suits or just boardies or singlets.

While the Bintang singlet has been a staple of Aussie travellers for some time, it looks like there's a new one in town that is getting a lot of love on social media.

A person uploaded this picture to Reddit, saying their cousin found it in a shop in Bali. People have been loving it and sharing their memories of coming across it in similar Balinese shops.

"My brother bought this while laughing and the Balinese shop owner asked why he was laughing, he had no idea what Centrelink was," said one Redditor.

Another wrote: "A supervisor from my work was let go, not long after he was on holiday in Bali, his next profile picture on Facebook was him wearing this shirt."

A third added: "I work 6 days a week and have never been on the dole but for some reason I need this shirt."

Someone who clearly loves Bali said: "I've had this singlet in about 10 different colours from all the different Bali trips I've been on and because they all last about two washes after I get home."

It's not the first time the Centrelink logo has been turned into a product to sell onto the masses. Brown Cardigan posted a photo two years ago showing someone managed to chuck it onto a dream catcher of all things.

Why in the hell you'd need or want a Centrelink dream catcher is beyond us. Maybe it's to ward off bad financial situations, who knows.
