This woman got famous by dating her backpack on Instagram, and now she's getting a huge reward
After their "relationship" won the hearts of the internet, Blau and her backpack were offered an all-expenses-paid trip by Jansport.
Earlier this month, Blau began dating her Jansport backpack and documenting their relationship via Instagram using the hashtag #JansportDate. Her pictures show the pair enjoying all sorts of traditional couple activities, including a candlelit dinner, a happy hour, and even a double date with another human-backpack couple.
But Blau, a comedian by trade, isn't taking this experience too seriously.
"My humor tends to skew more towards the absurd," she told Business Insider. "I have a piece about a motivational speaker for dogs, and I recently put up a sketch about a girl who grew up in a windowless basement. When you consider that I am dating my backpack, it reads."
