Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A London-based artist is seeking help launching a line of fanny packs featuring images of pudgy, hairy bellies.

The "Dadbag" promises the wearer convenient travel storage as well as an instant "dad bod" in six different styles.

The silly fashion accessory is not yet available for sale, as creator Albert Pukies is still looking for production partners.

"It's obviously meant to be funny but I do want to produce them," he told the Huffington Post. "I'm looking for manufacturers at the moment."

Pukies, 27, said he was inspired to create the fanny packs after round bellies became a fashion trend around 2015.

"My inspiration was seeing all the posts about dad bods being cool," he said. "I think people want them because of that reason. You can have a dad bod without any health issues."

Pukies envisions wearers using the fanny pack to store "typical dad items" such as beer, sunglasses and headphones.

He hopes to sell the Dadbag for $30 each and is considering crowdfunding the project.
