Paddy McGuinness pointed out the ridiculousness of Amazon’s packaging.
Taking to Instagram, he shared a clip of him untangling a package from the online retailer. He spent a whole 25 seconds pulling long strands of brown paper out of a box.
Eventually, he revealed the item he had purchased. He had bought a punching bag that was only a fraction of the size of the box.
