APEC dress-up fail

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit was held in Peru this year, and the traditional Make All the Leaders Dress Funny portion was just lame.

So lame.

Times past:

Ponchopallooza ‘04 in Chile:

Bar Girls in Hanoi, 2006:

Whatever the fuck this was supposed to be in Australia 2007:

Ponchopalooza ‘08 in Mexico:

Chinese Restaurant Waiters in Singapore 2009:

Here’s my post from the 2006 summit:

It’s so awkward when everyone shows up at work wearing the same thing.

Wow, that totally flatters his ass.

I am totally freeballing it under this thing.

Man, I coulda gone commando too.

Those are Driza-Bones! Inclement weather overcoats for the cattle-drivin' man on the land (and pretentious city hipsters in the 1990s). Would have been more obvious if they'd forced everyone to wear an Akubra as well (that's a brand of hat, allegedly named from an aboriginal word for "hat").

As they pointed out on The Mighty Boosh, it's impossible to be unhappy in a poncho, and I think these pictures prove that.

Can you see The Orange One in any of these outfits? They're only for those who are mature enough to handle looking a little silly.
