A Taiwanese guy was recently left floundering after finding that his grandmother was using an expensive Louis Vuitton handbag that he had bought for her to carry back fresh fish from the market.
The totally fintastic story was posted online to the Taiwanese social media network Dcard last month where it has received 30,000 likes and was even picked by the BBC who simply “cod not believe it.”
In the post, the caring grandson writes that he had bought his grandma a LV “Neverfull” handbag after noticing how her old (not designer) bag was falling apart. Soon afterward, his grandmother greeted him excitedly carrying her new handbag, telling her how happy she was with it because it was waterproof, though complaining that it was a bit heavy.
Inside, the grandson saw that the bag was full of groceries including a bunch of fresh fish.
The man writes that he was left totally speechless, but after seeing how happy his grandma was with her new premium fish-carrier, he decided not to say anything.
Louis Vuitton’s “Neverfull” handbag retails for over $1,000.
Underneath the post, commenters wondered if LV might not begin to use the old lady to promote their bags to a whole new demographic.
