(KGTV) - Did a woman in the Philippines really put on five and a half pounds of clothes at the airport to avoid paying an excess baggage fee?

Yes.

Gel Rodriguez checked into the airport only to discover her bag exceeded the 15 pound limit.

So instead of paying an extra fee, she decided to wear 3 pairs of pants, 5 shirts, and several jackets.

The picture she posted on social media of her "outfit" went viral.
