Lidl Asks Male Customers To Wear Women's Knickers To Work

It's wear your pants to work day!

In a gaffe on Lidl’s Twitter, the supermarket giant accidentally asked their followers to wear underwear - just underwear - to work.  

Lidl described nude and black knickers as men’s work trousers, thus implying it was perfectly appropriate attire for work.  

Fortunately, customers saw the funny side of the mistake and so did Lidl. 

Erring on the side of caution, they implored their followers to not go into work in just skimpy pants. You know, in case logic didn’t tell them so.

Of course some Twitter followers went to town on this slip up, but who can blame them? One commented: “er I bought four already!”

To which Lidl replied: 

Trust social media to make your week day commute more interesting.
