    During the unprecedented, worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a critical shortage of masks. As a result, some people have gotten creative by making do-it-yourself masks.

    Footage shared on YouTube by Viral Hog captures a woman in Bangkok, Thailand, standing outside while sporting a homemade “face mask” - made from a large plastic cup and what appears to be a pair of straws for ventilation. 

    In a statement given to the video licensor, the bystander who recorded the footage stated that they "saw this lady with a very different style of homemade mask to keep her safe in the coronavirus pandemic."

    Although unconventional, perhaps it works? Now that’s innovation!
