brand new pair of underwear? Yeah it was a first for me to. “Someone gave these to me at work today. They said they are the greatest underwear ever and that I will give them a high-five the first time I wear them to work.” My first thought was “who high-fives anymore” but then I thought they must be pretty special. After all I’m in my 40’s and I can’t remember the last time a person gave me underwear. I suppose it was probably Santa.
The underwear were in a little display box so I studied the black
box. The retail price was $24.99 – for one pair of underwear! The underwear are called “Weekday” boxer briefs. I have no idea what the “Weekend” boxer briefs look like, maybe crotchless? But anyway these undies have “Keyhole Comfort Technology” whatever that is. But the name of the product blew me away: drum roll please…My Package! And their web site is www.mypackage.combut it’s all in German so I didn’t learn much. But how funny is that?
Can’t you just image the commercials? A tall dark and handsome
man surrounded by women is talking to a nerdy guy who looks like he needs serious help. The nerd asks the hunk how he does it and the hunk attributes it to My Package and the keyhole comfort technology. Or put your package in MY Package and enjoy the cradling comfort. Or what if you have UPS deliver your items and they don’t arrive. Do you call and say, “I’m still waiting for my package of My Package?”
I took the underwear out of the box as I was desperate to see the
“keyhole” that provided the comfort and I have to admit I was thinking about the size of a key and a keyhole and imagining a tiny little space where someone’s package might end up. I was wrong. The keyhole (which is a space to tuck your junk into) was huge there was no one any one man could possible fill up. Whoever designed these must think the average key is bigger than it really is.
My Package also claims and I quote: “It’s simple, no more need
for shifting or adjusting!” And they put an exclamation point at the end of the sentence as if that’s something to be excited about. And what guy in their right mind would complain and say their key is too small for the keyhole and that they fall out and still have to shift and adjust?
This pair of underwear has a small red tag on the front and a big tag on the back of the waist band that says My Package. So if you had on droopy drawers or wore your pants like a gang banger it would be obvious that your package was safe and sound in My Package. That just sounds wrong!
I can’t wait to hear my husband’s report of how he likes the undies and I would love to be a fly on the wall when his friend looks him in the eye at work, high-fives him and says, “So how do you like My Package?”
