How do you get past those pesky overweight baggage fees that airlines have, yet still pack efficiently? Wear all of your clothing. That's what one man did when he arrived at an airport in China.
According to Digital Spy, an unidentified Kenyan man showed up at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on December 10 wearing 70 articles of clothing to avoid paying for an extra baggage fee. Witnesses described him as looking like a sumo wrestler since had had on so many layers.
The man's luggage was over the weight limit, meaning he would have to bay an additional baggage fee. He didn't want to do that. So he took out over 60 shirts and nine pairs of jeans and put them on his body.
Of course airport security found this to be a bit suspicious. He was stopped as he passed through the metal detector and had to go through a full body search before his flight to Nairobi, Kenya. He had to take off each layer of clothing.
Upon using a body metal detector, airport security officers found that he also had batteries, ties, USB sticks, toys and other things in the pockets of his clothing.
It is not clear if he was allowed on the flight with all of his clothing, but Want China Times suggests that he missed his flight due to the delay by the security process.
Those who want to save money on flights are often told to layer up their clothing, but this man took it to a whole new level.
