Because life’s too short to go to the gym when you can just fake it.

Don’t even try to deny it. You’ve gone to the shops to buy a bar of chocolate, driven to the ATM, sat at a cafe and more or less done nothing that would faintly constitute as exercise while wearing activewear (aka: gym clothes), in a bid to feel closer to the fit and healthy elite. It’s okay, this is a safe place, we get it. We’ve all been there.

And now, a genius new spoof video on just how ridiculous we all look doing exactly that is going viral thanks to its spot-on portrayal of the inherent lameness anyone who’s ever left the house with zero intention of visiting an actual gym has felt wearing activewear.

Created by the brilliant minds who dreamed up the explosively popular YouTube hit, Bondi Hipsters, the Van Vuuren Bros, the Activewear vid has already racked up over two million views, and when you see it, you’ll understand why…

WORD. Kudos, Van Vuuren Bros, kudos.

Finally, the world can embrace us in all our lazy glory. Because let’s face it, life’s too short to waste precious couch-reclining time going for a run when you can just as easily look like you’ve gone for a run without ever having to break a sweat. So please, pass the remote.

Comment: Are you guilty of wearing activewear while performing inherently non-active tasks?
