Ever since the schedules of the upcoming Paris Fashion Week were announced, the venue has been buzzing with drills. Paris Fashion Week has a history of featuring some of the most unconventional and downright strange outfits in the fashion industry.

Recently, in a surprising turn of events, a professional prankster managed to stroll down the runway during a current fashion show. The guy was wearing a plastic garbage bag and a shower cap.

They were completely oblivious to the fact that they were witnessing a prank in motion.
