Did You Know That Wearing Pineapples On Your Bathing Suit Was Sending Out This Signal?
A couple on vacation wearing pineapple print bathing suits were mortified to discover why people were being extra nice to them! Did you know what an upside down pineapple meant?
The couple were vacationing in the US and thought it would be cute to get matching swimming costumes with pineapples on them.
TikTok user @linjeanw shared photos of her and her husband on holiday saying she wasn’t sure why so many people were being extra nice to them.
“Wearing matching pineapple swimsuits with my husband on vacation because I thought it was cute,” she captioned the video.
What they didn’t know, was that pineapples, in particular upside down ones, were the international symbol for couples who swing.
“People were a little extra nice,” she added.
Since sharing the video, which has been viewed over 2.8 million times, people have been commenting on how hilarious their innocent mistake was.
“Y’all walking around wondering why you are so popular,” one person wrote.
“Gonna tell my wife to wear pineapples on vacation,” another said.
“I just realised I made my boyfriend wear a pineapple shirt and I wore a pineapple dress while on vacation two years ago,” one other commented.
“Pineapple stuff is too cute,” another said.
“Let’s take pineapples back! Swingers can use something else,” one person joked.
