Viewers Think This Newsreader’s Outfit Looks Like A ‘Penis’


This week, Australia’s Channel Nine got an unprecedented amount of attention after newsreader Samantha Heathwood wore a particularly memorable outfit.

Now, I know you’re all far too innocent to even notice this, so let me walk you through. Samantha’s neckline makes out the shape of a penis. I know, I’m sorry. It’s awful isn’t it? Sorry for subjecting you to such nonsense.

Anyway, obviously it’s absolutely hilarious (come on, this is the highlight of 2019 so far), so viewers immediately took to social media to point it out. It even got its own name – ‘penis jacket’.

One person wrote: “I know I’m immature but this cracks me up.”

Another added: “Literally cannot unsee it now.”

You may be thinking: “Hang on, I swear I’ve seen this jacket before”. Well, you probably have. Back in 2016, the jacket went viral. 

The internet never forgets.
