A man took to putting on 70 items of clothing to avoid an extra baggage charge at an airport.

The unidentified passenger turned up at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China, described as looking like a 'sumo wrestler'.

According to Guangzhou Daily, the man's luggage exceeded the weight limit. He did not want to pay the extra baggage costs, and thus took out and wore more than 60 shirts and nine pairs of jeans.

Wanting to board a flight to Nairobi, Kenya, he was stopped by the metal detector and had to undergo a full body search.

In his numerous pockets were batteries, thumb drives and device chargers.

This reminds me of that one funny scene in the US sitcom "Friends" where Joey was wearing layers of Chandler's clothes and said "Could I be wearing anymore clothes?" Posted Image

Looks like avoiding baggage charges he became the baggage!Posted Image

Why does he even have 9 pairs of jeans? Ok seriously, I'm surprised he was able to wear so many clothes.

Lol you guys said my exact thoughts. I wonder if he regretted after since he probably had to "strip" in the airport in front of everyone down to well his actual clothing.

He should have checked his luggage allowance in the first place instead of thinking he could outsmart everyone by wearing that many clothes.
