People Are Posting Pics To Show Their Face Mask Design Fails, And They’re Hilarious

People Are Posting Pics To Show Their Face Mask Design Fails, And They’re Hilarious

bored panda - 1 week ago

With face masks becoming a daily necessity, manufacturers started looking for ways how to make them a bit more... visually appealing. One of the things they've come up with is custom design. Numerous sellers are now offering buyers to create the looks of their face coverings, whether it's a Batman logo or a picture of the Mona Lisa.

Trying to make use of the opportunity, Twitter user @cameronmattis wanted to print a photo of the lower portion of his face, making the mask sort of blend in. However, not everything went according to the plan.

"The good news is my custom facemask arrived," he wrote on Twitter, uploading a picture of himself trying on the purchase. "The bad news is that they printed my face 20% too large."

The tweet instantly went viral, generating over 560K likes and 2.1K comments, many of which are photos of people with face mask problems of their own. Who knew social distancing could be this fun.
