Never having been an Underoos kid, I didn't understand the draw of wearing undies emblazoned with your favorite superhero's symbol. That is, until I saw the women's Deadpool Underoos by chance today on Facebook! I immediately went to the Underoos website and perused them more closely.
I could totally see myself prancing about in the red tank top and briefs with Deadpool's trademark belt and harness printed on the front, holding a couple of hairbrushes or spatulas in place of the swords (I'm not much of a weapon person).
Don't worry, I wouldn't be doing that in public! I have no desire to give my neighbor's heart attacks or severe bouts of nausea and vomiting. But I might wear it on the rare occasion when I actually clean my house!
Underoos were introduced in 1977 so kids everywhere could live out those secret superhero fantasies. Fortunately for the rest of us, the Underoos company has come to the realization that adults, these days, also need to channel their inner superheroes. So yay for us!
Whether you're a Star Wars, Wonder Woman, Minions, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Harry Potter, Power Rangers, or Deadpool fan, like me, you can now bust a move in your living room (ala Tom Cruise in "Risky Business") wearing only your undies, or hide them under your workwear.
Their current catchphrase is "Underoos, Underwear that's Fun to Wear!" But I'm thinking they should go with, "Underoos- -For adults who still dare to dream!"
Do you think they'd pay me for that slogan?
