If you have been on the internet the past two days you would have come across #Thedress. Certainly it is one of the weirdest topics to go viral on the web this year. So the dress is blue and black or white and gold does it matter. One important thing #TheDress highlights that the internet has connected people and this connected community of people will talk about anything. Down here in Africa jokes were going around about #TheDress in Office tea rooms. I found it hard to explain to my friends what #Thedress story was about though, the whole thing just sounded silly when I was halfway to explaining the story. For the manufacturers of #TheDress Roman Originals this was no silly matter sales on #Thedress are reported to have increasing by as much as 347%. #Thedress currently sales for $50 and Roman Originals intends to make #TheDress in white and gold although for now it is only available in blue and black.
