The latest trend to hit China is one that makes you look like you’re growing sprouts from your head. What’s not to like, we cry?

The trend is said to originate from a Chinese cartoon, Pleasant Goat and the Big Big Wolf.

But it has clearly stuck, as people like looking like they’re growing beans from their heads.

The Shanghaiist say:

While we’d like to consider the trend some sort of subversive comment on the chronic air pollution that shrouds China’s capital, it’s really just a thing because it’s cute.

As good a reason as any.
