Congrats to Love Island’s Biggs for the cringiest spon con of the year
STOP what you’re doing and watch this video now
Love Islanders are no strangers to tragic sponsored content for their Instagram pages, hey they’ve got to make money somehow. There’s been Georgia Steel’s iconic car air freshener ad, Tom promoting BBC Bitesize and of course Connor and Connagh doing an appearance at a kebab shop.
But now it appears we have our winner of the most tragic spon con ever – Biggs from winter Love Island is promoting large condoms. Oh and they’re ribbed too.
In a video posted to his Instagram page yesterday Biggs was promoting Magnum large ribbed condoms to his 133k followers. It’s great that he’s promoting safer sex but god the video is probably the cringiest thing I’ve seen all year and I can’t be the only one to see it.
The video features Biggs, not wearing a hat correctly, spinning a box of condoms to the camera across a kitchen work top. In the video he says: “Make sure you check out Magnum large size condoms for safe sex and comfort.”
And if you didn’t get the memo that they are LARGE condoms then Biggs also captioned it in the comments belong side the video.
He wrote: “Guys, Magnum Large Size Condoms are now available on Amazon UK. Premium brand and feel and now incredibly easy to get hold of!”
Lots of the other islanders were quickly in the comments taking the piss out of Biggs. Josh Denzel commented: “Of all the brand partnerships yeah. Enjoyable.” And Ched from winter Love Island commented: “Do they do XL?”.
Biggs is currently dating fellow Islander Rebecca Gormley, who recently came under fire for “blackfishing” when wearing new hair braids.
Rebecca defended her decision to wear the braids, but said she hadn’t meant to hurt anyone. Biggs also defended her saying if a young white guy was to come up to him and compliment his hair, he would take it as a positive thing.
