The Abiding Appeal Of Comedy Underpants

I love the National Lampoon from the 1970s. And I also love the defunct DeKalb, IL rock band named Shorty (who more or less went on to become U.S. Maple). But what I didn’t know was that these two cultural forces, separated by generations, had common ground when it came to comedy undergarments.

First: the ad clipped from the back pages of the February ’77 issue of NatLamp:

Comes With Informative Booklet

Informative booklet!

Fast-forward 17 years and see these underpants in action in the jaw-droppingly brilliant ’94 Shorty video “Coopie n’ Me”
