A COUPLE in their late 30s are recovering at home after accidentally wandering into an Urban Outfitters.
Emma and Nathan Muir went into the shop in search of a gift for a friend but found themselves trapped in a terrifying maze of fashionable sportswear and quirky millennial trinkets.
Nathan Muir said: “The vast array of urban street wear immediately made me think, ‘Uh oh, we’ve walked into a scooter gang hideout which is also probably a crack den.’
“But as we tried to walk out I saw loads of merchandise for the TV series Friends, which was popular on Channel 4 when I was young.
“Gangs are bad enough but now I really just wanted to get out of there in case we’d entered some sort of timewarp.”
Partner Emma said: “There were gifts but they were strange, useless books, like guides to cooking with avocados, or retro record players no one would ever use. It all felt very fake and slightly evil.
“They were definitely taunting me with the idea that I can’t wear a cropped puffa jacket and denim hotpants and still look cool at my age.”
The couple are now slowly getting over the shock and even enjoying their new mini waffle maker, which, in their dated old-person language, they described as “wicked”.
