Flash Underwear Mob Participants Stripping in Time Square
A flash mob is a mass public gathering, unanticipated by anyone other than the participants, who communicate and organize the gathering beforehand via electronic means such as texts, social networks like Twitter, etc.
So, what if the flash mob took place in Times Square? Sounds interesting, right?
What if the flash mob in Times Square was made up of cute guys stripping down to their underwear to show off a new underwear line? Positively delicious.
Check out the YouTube video here. You can read more about the happening at BuzzFeed.
Recently, I wrote two articles on new underwear lines being promoted – fart filtering underwear and anti-radiation underwear. Add to the growing list of these strange new ideas – biodegradable, disposable underwear you make at home.
According to NPR’s Last Word in Business podcast, this idea is the brain child of an Israeli couple who have invented a printer of sorts that, apparently, prints underwear. They also can print bandages and other items.
Can you imagine the shock to the underwear garment industry if we all just started making our own? Hey, that’s not such a bad idea, right?
Not so fast. The machine that prints the underwear costs a mere $3 million dollars. Still, if you’re considering an investment opportunity or new business venture, one machine is capable of printing some 10 million disposable, biodegradable undies. Now ask yourself – How much did you spend on your last pair of underwear or fashion jockstrap?
Much has been written on undergear sites lately about “fashion jockstraps.” What are they? Who makes them? Are they hear to stay, or some sort of weird fad?
This last question, in particular, seems to be answered, at least somewhat, by a new article in none other than Huffington Post. In the article, which referenced a source we also mentioned recently, was this tantalizingly delicious NastyPig advert:
NastyPig: Is Nasty Now Mainstream For Men’s Underwear?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love NastyPig undergear – it’s well-made, styled for men and for hot sex, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg like some other makers whose shoddy crap shall remain nameless despite its seemingly limitless popularity among gay men. But, can Nasty maintain that certain edge I believe it has if it’s becoming just another mainstream undergarment for everyday men? Or, is there something even more tantalizing about the neighbor wearing a NastyPig jock underneath his suit on his way to work?
In my opinion, if there is one brand that can maintain this edge, it is NastyPig. Only time will tell. Incidentally, I have no interest in making this recommendation other than as a very satisfied customer.
This clip is causing quite a stir in the blogosphere at the moment. When you watch it, you will see why.
Starring in “The Place Beyond the Pines.” Ryan Gosling filmed a scene where he strips down to some blue briefs that are bulging with, well, natural born talent. For some unknown reason, however, the scene was deleted from the movie’s final version.
Too bad, but thankfully, it has been preserved in the wonder that is cyberspace. Gosling is a fine actor, but he deserves credit for the talents that don’t show, just as much for those that do.
One of the most memorable and recognizable advertisements involving underwear are the Calvin Klein ads featuring Mark Wahlberg, formerly known as “Markie Mark,” pictured above. To this day I look upon this image fondly, remembering how it graced the wall of my dorm room in college, a sexual and political statement of what I was all about.
But, forget all that nostalgia. Have you seen Mark Walhberg lately? Now 42, Wahlberg continues to flatter the camera in his underthings, as shown in the candid pictures taken of the actor recently (see below).
As these photos amptly demonstrate, Wahlberg has still “got it,” and then some. All I can say is Wow! If I were taking a personality test right about now, like one I took back in college for Psych 101, and it asked, “What would you like to be most?”, I would answer it today the way I answered it then: “Markie Mark’s underwear.”
Thanks to the lucky photographer who got these pics!
