Cape Town – So, we’ve told you all about the ‘Topless Tour’ and how globetrotting girls (as well as the occasional guy) have added an edge to the their travel pics by posing topless… with their backs to the camera, of course.
Well, if you thought that was sensational, you may have to avert your eyes for the posed pics this traveller has been sharing of himself in the buff at various locations around the world.
Going by the name, The Naked Handstander, the anonymous ginger-haired man has been… well… doing naked handstands around the globe for the past five years, with his very first appearance having been in Vik, Iceland in May 2009.
First tweet, first handstand! It all started in Vik, Iceland back in 2009. Tack så mycket Amanda :) pic.twitter.com/4EqFbldeID— Naked Handstander (@nudehandstand) September 10, 2014
While it may seem completely frivolous, his website reveals that there is actually a greater cause behind all of this.
The Naked Handstander is, in fact, doing what he does “To raise awareness of Planned Obsolescence and to explore the world in all its glory and wonder in the raw....to make people laugh, cry and smile (maybe even at the same time) and most importantly to make people THINK about this glorious place we live in and what we do to it.”
Planned Obsolescence? We also didn't know what that was, but he explains: "The deliberate shortening of a products useful life in order to force the consumer to buy or 'upgrade' over and over and over again....in the name of Profit and Greed."
