A 28 year old entrepreneur has just answered the prayers of paparazzi-hounded celebs everywhere. Meet Saif Siddiqui- inventor of the ISHU scarf. The name stands for privacy and silence, and is a combination of the words “issue” and “shh”.
The ISHU scarf is made of a fabric enhanced with thousands of nano-spherical crystals that reflects light back into a camera, basically rendering all flash photography useless. (see below)
As you can imagine, celebrities have been scrambling to get their hands on the one-of-a-kind scarf that is like Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak.
We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 moments we believe celebrities wished they were wearing the invisibility scarf. Whether they were wielding an umbrella as a weapon of mass destruction or caught in a compromising situation, these celebs would definitely have benefited from the powers of the ISHU scarf!
- TARA REID – Say boobie! Who can forget the moment Tara was so oblivious to her nip slip that she just kept smiling for the cameras. Poor love, she had no idea why suddenly all the flashes were going off in her direction!
2. BRITNEY SPEARS– The saying goes ‘if Britney survived 2007 you can get through anything’. The girl was mad, she had an umbrella and the paps copped it! Brits was also sporting a minimalist haircut she gave herself to avoid some DNA testing she had to give to the courts. But look at our Brit now- she’s performing sold out shows in Vegas with no umbrellas in sight.
3. MICHAEL JACKSON – did some crazy stuff in his life but not much can top the time he dangled his then 9 month old son OVER the balcony for his screaming fans. I have no further comment for this moronic behaviour. *face slap*
4. KRISTEN STEWART – brought an end to the magic of a real-life Twilight couple when she cheated on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, director of Snow White and the Huntsman. This eventually spelled the end of Stewart’s relationship with Pattinson, as well as Sanders’ marriage to Liberty Ross. Tsk tsk.
5. BRITNEY SPEARS– did it again. This time she decided to go for a drive with her baby sitting ON her lap. I don’t know- let’s not judge her too quickly- perhaps she was getting some driving lessons in for him early?
6. JUSTIN BIEBER – was reportedly ‘upset’ that the paps snapped him walking around his island resort without any clothes. The rest of the world…well…not so much.
8. HUGH GRANT– had Elizabeth Hurley waiting for him at home in 1995 when he quickly ducked out for something more ‘Devine’ with a certain lady of the night.
9. TOM CRUISE– jumped for joy on Oprah’s couch back in the day to celebrate the fact that his Scientology buddies managed to find him a woman that was willing to marry him despite the fact he worshipped an alien. In this case I think Oprah needs the scarf.
10. KANYE WEST– Imma let you finish…actually no I’m not. That time when Tay Tay couldn’t believe her moment was being interrupted by Mr. Kardashian himself. Doofus needs the scarf permanently around his neck!
