Is there a serious message behind the day?

Yeah, kinda.

We want young people to feel good about themselves. Phone use for Gen Z has from less than 30 minutes daily in 2012 to nearly 8 hours a day or 50 hours a week. It's leading to massive mental health issues for young people and we wanted to do something to counter the narrative that you need to be ripped/shredded to be loved.

Smugglers, may the most Ordinary Rig win!

Budgy Smuggler, are you Ordinary enough?

Yours in Smuggling,

Linny, Chief Smuggler
