Man Creates His Own VB Personal Protective Equipment

For hard-earned protection

People around the world have have been trying to get their hands on personal protective equipment (PPE) amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But one bloke has amazed people on the internet thanks to his homemade PPE - which comes with a notable beer-inspired twist.

Dressed in civilian clothes, the unknown man was photographed wearing a VB-themed face visor and a VB-themed face mask.


Of course it has 'Made in Australia' taped over the bottom of it to ensure people know that this work of art was made Down Under.

The picture was posted to Reddit, and users were blown away, with one person saying: "Holy s**t, it's VB Kelly!"

Another added: "I hereby declare you to be VB's new mascot."

A third joked: "He doesn't have VB gloves on, he's doomed!"

This is just one of many different types of creative PPE that has been worn since the coronavirus pandemic started. One woman was seen wearing a classic Stormtrooper helmet while shopping in the UK.

Mark Mattocks saw the bizarre shopper while out shopping in Sittingbourne, Kent, earlier this week.

The 35-year-old told The Sun: "I was strolling past the aisle with my girlfriend and we were both chatting about how empty the shelves were.

"We both glanced along and carried on walking then froze and both said, 'Did you just see that?'

"I was totally stunned at how casually this lady was shopping with that on her head. It looked like she was stockpiling bottles of Coke."

Meanwhile, in Spain - where there has been a complete lockdown, with citizens told to remain in their homes, leaving only to purchase essentials such as food and medical supplies - police saw a person dressed as a dinosaur walking the streets.

Sharing the encounter on Twitter, a spokesperson for the police force said: "In alarm, pets are allowed to walk accompanied by a person, always with short walks to relieve themselves. Having a Tyrannosaurus Rex complex is not covered."

In the clip the person in the costume was approached by an officer while out and about in Murcia, in southeastern Spain.

Understandably given the ongoing situation, the dinosaur-costumer-wearer was given a telling off by police.

Maybe just stick to the classic face mask next time.
