'Flying Pasties' Attempt to Hide Your Nakedness from Full-Body Scanners
A funny thing happened while we were researching our latest complete and updated list list of airports with full-body scanners; we stumbled across one of the newest travel products on the market, and arguably one of the most creative: "Flying Pasties."
Pastiesyou know, stickers you put over your naughty bitsaren't just for strippers and Lady Gaga anymore! They're apparently also for your average air traveler. According to Flying Pasties, their $20 orange stickers sets (tastefully printed with "PRIVATE"), "give you back your right to privacy while respecting security."
While Flying Pasties is emphatic about the fact that their pasties do not protect you from the radiation of full-body scanners, they don't mention any technology present in their stickers which actually keeps your nips and bits unseen. They sound like regular old stickers with skin-safe adhesive, and how are scanners that can see through thick leather wallets going to be fooled by these?
Just wait; it gets better! Their pitchmanwho obviously filmed his video spiel on the Pasties from his bedroom or something using his laptop's cameraattempts to inform about the airports scanners, but doesn't seem to understand that a scan of a person doesn't look like a naked picture of them, like with the sample girl above (who's obviously had some breast work done). But then again, he is the one with the idea to capitalize on the fears of passengers subjected to these new airport scanners, so he's got that going for him.
And what does Flying Pasties recommend you do if you're questioned about your pasties by the TSA? "Simply remove them and present it to them." Yea, cause that's sanitary and respecting of your personal privacy. Flying Pasties don't belong on your body; they belong on FAILBlog.
But what do you think? Would you wear these?
