Today is one of those days when two unrelated incidents come together to form a MyDaily short story. On the one hand, we have a Catholic schoolgirl banned from showing her condom dress art project at school and on the other we have Zac Efron apparently dropping a condom on the red carpet at The Lorax movie premiere.
Here's the Zefron incident:
Here's the dress:
We're considering working it up as a screenplay and sending it to the BBC.
In case you wanted to find out more about the two individual stories, here they are in brief:
1. Teenager Meg Todd was banned from wearing the condom dress she made in response to her art class's brief: "contagion". Trinity School, Leamington Spa decided that the dress was not in keeping with its philosophy and barred the garment from being worn in a fashion show at the school. For what it's worth, we think it's a really interesting response to the theme and hope Meg gets a good grade.
2. Zac Efron was attending the premiere of animated movie The Lorax when he gets something out of his pocket to pass to his publicist and a square gold packet falls out too. It's a case of blink-and-you'll-miss-it at the 10 second mark on the YouTube clip. After that there's a certain amount of hiding behind sunglasses and giggling into his own hand. We can't say for sure whether it was a condom but the possibility is definitely floating about in the aether.
