That's a shame, it appears that YouTube have removed it.
What can we say? US company Vavoom has taken the old gag about girls and vibrating phones to its logical conclusion and come up with a pair of pants with a handset holding pouch on the front. Dubbed the Call Me Panty the naughty knickers - tagline: "Special panties for that special someone. Simply turn your phone to vibrate …
Am I the only one who remembers all the concern about radiation and mobile phones (still unresolved), and claims that people keeping them in tight jeans close to their genitals had a higher incidence of testicular cancer (as I recall, the stories of the time were aimed largely at men)? While I don't lend credence to much of the fear of radiation, I'm not sure I'd willingly keep my phone in that paticular location for a long period. Plus, it doesn't seem handy for taking your phone to the pub with you - "Hold on a sec, my phone's ringing", squelch, zip, squelch, "Hello?" - and may raise a few eyebrows. Then again, maybe I'm missing the point.
When I first saw a phone with a vibrating alert, I floated this idea to a dirty minded friend - she thought it was brilliant.
I am quite sure I'm not the only person who had this idea, obviously. I knew a lass who was a big fan of the rumble pad test in the first PS1 Metal Gear Solid game - take any electronic device that buzzes, and within eight seconds, someone comes up with a clitoral-based activity for it.
Thing is, wouldn't it just be easier to stop being such a prude and buy a remote controlled vibrator, and put that in the front pocket instead? Or am I being too sensible here?
"Hey look at my phone - it's tiny"
"Nah, mine's tinier"
These might well become:
"Man, that's one huge phone in your pocket."
"That's no phone, that's my...."
Mine's the one with the extra low down pocket for .........>click< >brrrrrrrrrr<
"Who was it targeting with the advert?"
More to the point, who are the knickers targeting?
Like a boyfriend is going to buy a pair of knickers strong enough to hold a phone in just the right spot when he could buy a pair of knickers which almost aren't there or a pair which have what appear to be rather flimsily sewn seams in strategic places.
Paris, because she's the only possible target market.
