The internet has been sent into meltdown after footage from fashion show Project Runway resurfaced appearing to predict the coronavirus pandemic.
The clip comes from the 17th season of the fashion show, which aired back in April 2019.
It shows a designer named Kovid Kapoor participating in a “Head To Toe” challenge – which asks contestants to create a design that covers a model’s body.
He chooses a red plaid suit which, spookily, includes a face mask. Back in 2019, this may seem out of the ordinary but fast forward to the present day and masks have been a symbol of the pandemic.
The judges even labelled the mask “sick” – which takes on a whole new meaning now.
Combined with Kovid’s name, viewers were left convinced that the fashion show had inadvertently predicted the coronavirus outbreak.
Joan Schumacher-Mart was the first to re-share the scene to TikTok on Sunday (November 29), where it has since been seen more than 2.4 million times.
“When project runway has a designer named Kovid who makes a look with a mask…. in 2019,” she wrote.
One viewer replied: “Move over Simpsons, there’s another show predicting the future.”
And another said: “Them: ‘No one can predict the future’.
“Me: ‘There was a designer on Project Runway last year named Kovid and one of his designs featured a face mask which one of the judges repeatedly called sick’.”
Of course, Kovid did not predict the future with his mask but admitted he has found the claims funny.
He told HuffPost that it has been “very interesting to see how fate plays itself out” and truly “had no idea that the mask thing would blow up”.
“At the end of the day whatever gets people talking about you or your work is worth it,” he added.
