Those of you who are new to More Cowbell might have missed The Undie Chronicles. The regular posse here knows: When the Undie-verse speaks, we will always listen. I had no idea when this began that there were so many hilarious undie-based topics to discuss. Plus it’s Monday, and I like a good Monday belly laugh.
Whether you’re an astronaut, into extreme sports, or just have an overactive bladder, I thought y’all would appreciate this #Underwareness Campaign.
Their slogan? Drop Your Pants for Underwareness!
They encourage you to “join the cause” at Underwareness.com. According to them, you can show your support *smothering an IYKWIM*, get a free sample *eyebrows wiggling* and find out how to help Depend® donate up to $3 million to charity.
[Me? I’m still back there with the “Drop Your Pants” slogan. Y’all know I have the humor-meter of a middle-school boy. Plus, I always thought the adult version was called “Depends” with an “s.” Turns out I was wrong.]
Wikipedia gave me the scoop on the origin of these things.
Kimberly-Clark has been making Huggies for infants since 1978. In 1984, the Depend products were introduced for adults, pioneering the retail incontinence category in the United States. The original products were liners, available in regular and extra absorbency.
After watching that video above, here’s what I’d love to know:
- What was the selection criteria for those dancing models in the video? Depend products never looked so good! I’ll bet they paid these people a lot.
- Where do I get one of those shirts?
If you’ve got questions after watching that video, put ’em in the comments!
Would you “drop your pants” for charity? Have you already done so? What do you think of those models and their “underwareness party?” Enquiring minds LOVE to know these things here at More Cowbell!
p.s. I reserved my turkey yesterday for Thanksgiving. To hear about my turkey phobia, click here.
