Australian swimsuit brand holding competition for most ordinary dad bod

Why bother working towards a six-pack when you can celebrate your “dad bod” instead.

An Australian swimwear company is doing just that. Sydney-based Budgy Smuggler announced their “Search For Australia's Most Ordinary Rig” competition over Instagram, asking average-body contestants to submit a photo of themselves in the label’s swimwear for the chance to win a billboard in their home town.

#BREAKING: The Search For Australia's Most Ordinary Rig Has Launched! It's time to get nominating. We are on the search for the man with Australia’s most ordinary rig. Let’s face it, ordinary is the new extraordinary and a six-pack is more useful when it’s under your arm than popping up on everyone’s social media. This bloke we are searching for is exceptional in his ordinariness. This bloke is so ordinary he is extra ordinary. This bloke is also someone you want to get around and who carries rig with a good sense of humor and embraces the body he is in. The prestigious competition dubbed as being for "dad bods without needing to have kids" is expected to be contested by hundreds of Australian men. The winner will progress to contest the 'Ashes of Ordinary' against the Most Ordinary Rig UK winner and have the chance to win a Billboard in their home town. Entrants will be judged on a strict criteria: - Should look like they could have been good at sport at some point in their life, although were most likely prevented via injury or robbed by selectors early in their career. - Must be capable of launching a child from their shoulders several metres in a swimming pool - Should look like they can still run for a taxi and swing an axe - Bonus points for likes/shares on social media as well as a description of the exceptional ordinaryness of the person pictured * A six pack is an automatic disqualification. To enter simply post a picture (of yourself or a mate) in Budgy Smugglers and tag #OrdinaryRigAU and #BudgySmuggler on Instagram / Facebook. Entries for the competition close November 15th with the final to be held at Sydney's Ivy Pool on January 3rd 2018. May the most ordinary rig win.

“Let’s face it, ordinary is the new extraordinary and a six-pack is more useful when it’s under your arm than popping up on everyone’s social media,” the post reads. “This bloke we are searching for is exceptional in his ordinariness. This bloke is so ordinary he is extra ordinary.”

Anyone looking to enter should know they’ll be judged on a set of “strict criteria”: Anyone hoping to take home the title “should look like they could have been good at sport at some point in their life, although were most likely prevented via injury or robbed by selectors early in their career. - Must be capable of launching a child from their shoulders several metres in a swimming pool - Should look like they can still run for a taxi and swing an axe - Bonus points for likes/shares on social media as well as a description of the exceptional ordinaryness of the person pictured." And finally, "A six-pack is an automatic disqualification.”
