Watermelon Underpants To Keep Cool In Summer

Watermelon Underpants To Keep Cool In Summer

A Chinese lad has the coolest dad after he cut a watermelon into sections to make his son a pair of extra cool watermelon underpants.

Ruifeng Fan, 33, from Taipei in Taiwan had the idea because the family didn't have a swimming pool and his sons constant complaining about being too hot. He said: "I gave him a watermelon to eat which is usually the best way to cool down and after cutting out the inside I suddenly thought that actually the watermelon itself could probably be used to make a really cool pair of underpants.

"So I cut out two holes for his legs and fitted it with a makeshift pair of braces, and he instantly had the coolest underpants in town."

In fact the youngster Hao loved the underpants so much, his dad later made him a watermelon hat and watermelon boxing gloves. And now the trend has caught on, with other people uploading watermelon clothing including snaps of one dad who created a watermelon suit of armour complete with a helmet and watermelon sword.

Ruifeng's son Hao, 5, said the watermelon was cold but he quickly realised we had was pretty unique, and enjoyed the attention from neighbours as he paraded around in his new underwear.
