If Men Had To Wear Lady SPANX [Video]

As a follow-up to the hilarious Kanga/Undie-roos, the undie-verse keeps putting these sorts of unusual (and thematic) items in my path. This video came from our own Perilous Pauline Baird Jones and had me shaking with laughter.

Of course, it all started with the guys wanting to be tougher than the lady on the cover of the SPANX package “who looks like she could kick my a$$.” Personally, I’d love for someone to make a similar video showing women the first time they try on football pads or, um…Jog Straps.

Note: We’re an equal opportunity shop for undergarment discomfort.

Have you ever seen SPANX? Who introduced them to you? Would any of you guys wear them? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!

    You definitely had me laughing with this one this morning! Hilarious. (Made me flashback to Joe Namath and pantyhose, though. Anyone else remember that?)


  2. Oh my word, Jenny! I’m crying, I’m laughing so hard. Ugh, Spanx are of the devil. They don’t work on me, because I’m shaped like an apple. The Spanx that comes down to my waist flips up immediately like some possessed window shade. The Spanx that comes up to my waist, rolls immediately to my knees, making me walk like a 19th century Chinese woman with bound feet.

    Not pretty, not pretty at all! But thanks for the laugh!

      “Possessed window shade.” Oh, God, that had me rolling around in my chair laughing. But only because that totally happens to me unless I anchor the darn thing in place with the Spanx that comes up to my waist. We won’t talk about what happens when they both let go at the same time. 😉


  3. I loved that they kept wondering where the fat went and their theory of where it did go. For them, maybe there is some magic empty place. When I attempt re-shaping, I end up with fat knees and a double chin. LOL

    So funny. No way would my guy try these. He doesn’t care if he has hangover “muscle.” The vid didn’t ever explain if it hurt the package though. And for both sexes there is always the problem of when you have to “go” really bad. You have to plan bathroom breaks — way far ahead. I’d probably pee my pants.

    Well, here’s my laugh for the morning. You are such a hoot!!

    I needed this laugh today! Especially the guy struggling to take off the cami. I’m over here giving him instructions: “Lower the straps first! Then pull one arm free. Don’t do it that way! You’ll be trapped forever!” How do I know this? Let’s just say that the first time I tried to take one of those off ended with a small panic attack as I was being smothered, and I had to yell for my husband to come and free me!


  7. Sharla Rae says:

    This reminds me of the movie with Mel Gibson, What Women Want. He shaves his legs and tries on panty hose. Pretty funny stuff.


  8. I loved the guy who was trying to get his cami Spanx off. It reminded me of me when i try on a dress too tight in a store’s dressing room. A sure sign not to buy. I was introduced to Spanx by my skinny girlfriends. I do love to wear Spanx as tights with a skirt or dress. 🙂


  9. I’m pretty much like the soup guy from Seinfeld when it comes to these undergarments: “No spanx for you.” Interesting concept, these Spanx, but they really just push up and redistribute the fat to other places, like under your arms. So wrong.

    I like that that one guy in the video liked how the material felt. That was funny.
