Limbo is a popular dance contest, based on traditions that originated on the island of Trinidad. The aim is to pass forwards under a low bar without falling or dislodging the bar.
The dance originated as an event that took place at wakes in Trinidad. It was popularized in the 1950s by dance pioneer Julia Edwards(known as the First Lady of Limbo).
A horizontal bar, known as the limbo bar, is supported by two vertical bars. All contestants must attempt to go under the bar with their backs facing toward the floor. When passing under the bar, players must bend backwards.
No part of their body is allowed to touch the bar, and no part other than their feet may touch the ground. They must not turn their head or neck to the side. Whoever knocks the bar off or falls is eliminated.
After everyone has passed under the bar in this manner, the bar is lowered slightly and the contest continues. The contest ends when only one person can pass under the bar.
The popular game requires body flexibility of the contestants to have a better chance of winning.
However, the clothes that we wear usually do not have the same properties and often time becomes a hindrance in participating the game properly.
This is the hard lesson a young woman learned after her swim wear unintentionally loosened when she took part in a limbo game from what seems to be a beach party.
She can be seen bending over as she tries to pass the limbo bar. She almost managed to lower herself down enough to pass through the bar. but her attire did not stand the stress and stretch and eventually snaps.
The embarrassing moment exposed her privates for other participants to see. To make things worse, it was caught on video that immediately became viral a couple of years ago.
