iPhone 6 / 6 Plus Case In Honor of “The Dress” That Freaked Out the Internet
If you’ve had been online over the past few days then you must have heard of The Dress that made the world lose its mind over the color debacle of a random stranger’s dress that was posted on Tumblr. Seeing the image, some people said the color was blue and black, while others argued it as being gold and white. The meme turned into an online viral sensation, and while a few days have passed since it first broke the Internet, the debate is not over yet.
Well, regardless if you belong to #Teamblueandblack or #Teamwhiteandgold, as long as you own an iPhone 6 / 6 Plus, you can dress your device up in the same gown that divided the Internet. Now Amazon is hosting pre-orders for cases in both color schemes of the viral dress, for either your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
The cases are made by Bastex Wireless, which also sells thousands of other cases, and smartphone accessories of all kinds.
The Internet debate sparked tons of interest in the dress that resulted in soaring sales for the designer. Even media outlets saw rewards in the form of traffic surge achieved from the coverage of the story; the Tumblr page that had the photo of the original dress attracted more than 73 million views, whereas BuzzFeed’s main post on the dress has got more than 38 million views to date.
Given all the hype this Internet sensation had created, The Dress-themed iPhone covers seem a novel idea at present. But even though the cases are up for pre-orders right now, they won’t ship until the end of March — March 27th for iPhone 6 version and March 31st for iPhone 6 Plus. So we hope people still remember The Dress by then and don’t get obsessed with yet another memed craze.
If you’re interested in buying this cover for your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, don’t forget to let us know which color scheme would you choose, and if it’s the same you guessed when had the first glimpse at the now-famous dress.
