A Zara customer’s embarrassing experience with a pair of the shop’s faux leather trousers has gone viral after the hilarious clip racked up nearly four million views.
Julia Leonard was left mortified when she visited a restaurant with her family, only to discover her new pair of trousers came with a very awkward design flaw.
Sharing a clip to TikTok, she urged: “Please just keep watching if you shop at Zara. So I bought these really cute, flarey-type leather pants, and I went out to eat with my family.
“And thank god it was just my family. On our way out, my sister drops her phone, so I go down to pick it up and this happens…”
Julia then stands back and demonstrates bending down, at which point the trousers let out a noise comparable to loudly breaking wind – before squatting down twice more to prove it was not an unfortunate isolated incident.
The 19-year-old breaks into laughter before adding: “So here’s a warning if you want to buy these pants: don’t bend down.”
The clip, captioned ‘Save yourself because I couldn’t’, has been viewed more than 3.7 million times and left viewers in stitches at the trouser’s hilarious hidden talent.
One commented to say: “I was expecting you to say they ripped but I was way off,” before another added: “Oh they ripped alright.”
A second said: “Omgg. I would stand there doing it at least 32 more times to let others know it was just the pants.”
A third wrote: “I HAVE THE SAME PAIR. Happened to me getting into an Uber haha.”
And others loved the bonus feature, adding: “On my way to Zara right now.”
