Taiwanese Couple Delights Internet Modeling Clothes Left at Laundromat


An elderly Taiwanese couple who owns a laundromat has become an internet sensation after modeling the clothes that were never picked up:

"I never would've thought at my age so many people would want to look at pictures of me," says 84-year-old Hsu Hsiu-e.

She smiles proudly, standing in her laundrette with washed and ironed laundry hanging from overhead poles or stuffed inside glass cabinets all around her.

For 70 years, she and her husband, Chang Wan-ji, 83, have been quietly washing the clothes of the people in Houli District, Taichung City, in central Taiwan.

Over the decades, hundreds of pieces of clothing have piled up that customers had neglected to pick up.

Recently their grandson, Reef Chang, convinced them to have fun by modelling the abandoned clothes and posting the pictures on Instagram.

And to their surprise, their posts have become a big hit - so far their WantShowAsYoung account has 130,000 followers from around the world.

This is just the best. Take a look at some of these shots:
