An opportunistic strip club is aiming to put a kinky spin on the coronavirus coronavirus pandemic, hosting a COVID-19-themed night featuring dancers in hazmat suits.
Strippers at Starlets in New York, US, posed with bottles of Corona beer, and a man in a hazmat suit ahead of the pandemic-themed event.
Dancers were front and centre, though, wearing skimpy white lycra outfits and the frequently seen surgical masks worn by commuters to protect them from coronavirus.
In a video posted to the Starlets account, one black haired dancer can be seen shaking her hips to Drake’s Flip The Switch viral song.
As the song progresses, the screen goes black and the man standing behind her is suddenly wearing a skimpy white lycra, while she dons the hazmat suit.
The lighthearted event was held last week, just days before the strip club was forced to close because of the virus.
Posting the notice of closure to their Instagram page, Starlets said: “Effective immediately we are closing to support New York City’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
“We must ensure a safe and healthy environment for all, which at the time calls for us to minimise gatherings while maintaining the cleanest environment possible.”
The decision was met with mixed reactions from fans of the club, who shared their disdain on the Instagram page, which has 588K followers.
One said: “Can’t the dancers work from home? Asking for a friend.
A hopeful added: “I guess I'll wait to put in my application …"
While a third said: "No, was about to turn up this weekend, girls I'll miss you."

The club, who frequently post cash strewn on the floor, dancing girls in barely there outfits and alcohol, have since set up an alternative for fans.
Posting to the page on Friday, Starlets said it will be doing a “quarantine and chill” using the Instagram live feature.
It asked users who “they would like to hear from” and is designed to show “how some of your favourite bartenders are doing in quarantine.”
