Do You Have ‘iPhone6 Legs’? Test is Newest Viral Trend in China

Do You Have ‘iPhone6 Legs’?  Test is Newest Viral Trend in China
Mar 31, 2016 By eChinacities.com

Following the much hyped ‘A4 Waist’, viral trend— in which Chinese woman posted photos of themselves to prove they were as skinny as an A4 sheet of paper— the ‘iPhone6 Legs’ have taken the Chinese internet by storm this week.

Chinese women are posting pictures of themselves with an iPhone6 across their thighs with their knees together to show that their thighs are as thin as the length of an iPhone 6 (13.8 cm).

Hangzhou’s City Express spurred on the madness by running an article featuring six female Netizens posing with ‘iPhone 6 Legs.’ The author of the article wrote that ‘iPhone6 Legs,’ “have become the new standard for legs,” and encouraged readers to try the challenge themselves.

However, a number of Chinese women were disturbed by this basically unattainable beauty standard. “How can people survive being this thin?” “Such weak legs. Can we do one with an iPad?” Apple’s iPads are nearly 24 cm in length.

Personally, I find Skinny legs unattractive. Toned legs are much more sexy, you want something to get hold of. First the A4 waist and now the iPhone legs. Goodness me ladies, you are beautiful as you are; stop messing around with nature.

Whoever can achieve it also demonstrates that they have either a) a friend to take the picture or b) a second phone -maybe a second iPhone - to take the selfie, just adding to the cool factor.

Wrong! You're here to tell us it should be called the "Huawei test". Five Maos will be deducted from your salary, and your supervisor will see you shortly.

Calm down son and ease off on the weed and computer games. And remember, not every reader is as brainwashed and paranoid as you.

As a matter of fact, many Chinese also win at the "peanut brain" challenge. Smaller than laowais, everywhere.

Stupid excuse to show off they have the new iphone for face gain. I personally find skinny legs a turn off. I like some muscle tone on legs. Skinny legs shouts weak and frail, not my cup of tea.

I am not sure well toned, healthy legs are in vogue from the society that gave us foot binding. Weak and frail is the tradition!

Just compensating for the lack of food . Look at me great! I can pug my iPhone 6 on my lap. Just more vapid behavior from very childish, unintelligent women.
