After Texas officials announced firm shelter-in-place guidelines for residents of Dallas Country, 31-year-old Elias Aragaw spent his days laying around and "binge-watching shows." Bored with the same old routine, Aragaw decided to stage a quarantine fashion show with lockdown-inspired outfits.
The video, which has gone viral since posting it to his Twitter account @TheFunkIsReal, was captioned: "Quarantine Showcase for my outfits I’ll be rocking at home for lockdown 2020."
The hilarious video features Aragaw modeling several styles of loungewear and athleisure. He even accessorized with a pair of surgical gloves—"So he doesn't bring no 'Rona home," obviously.
"Welcome to the quarantine runway show; look at him, look at him ready to spend days in the house with that beautiful traditional Ethiopian robe," Aragaw narrates. "Opening it up! White t-shirt and shorts, very casual look just in case the AC is blowing. Little spin and a flare and away he goes. Yes!”
Aragaw also walks the runway in a "Netflix and chill" Snuggie emblazoned with the Dallas Cowboys logo and a pair of neon shorts to show off some "cake action."
"In the midst of difficult times lies creativity, so while we're all quarantined be safe and find your peace and what makes you happy through it all," Aragaw says. "I create content often so I’m glad this one can help people find some joy and laughter considering the severity of what’s going on."
