This is real. A real product that will be packaged and shipped to you for $3.99 if you decide that for some reason you are in desperate need of underpants instantly. I did not go looking for this particular product, just to set the record straight. I don't have the luxury of wearing underpants at all most of the time due to my Chihuahua who has an insatiable taste for it. Actually, maybe that puts me in the market for this?
Who still calls them underpants? I guess I just did. It's better than the word "panties" though, gross.
I came across it when I was browsing one of those "Deal of the Day" type websites. You know, the ones that list a bunch of items at a marked down price for a short amount of time? You know, the ones that cause you to buy things like "Instant Underpants" because you feel like maybe you're the only one without a pair in their glove compartment, purse or first aid kit and that in case of an emergency you should be totally equipped and not be caught without underpants on and then the ticker says the sale only last 5 minutes longer and your anxiety level brinks causing you to click that "buy it" button. Yeah those.
In order to activate your instant underpants, you have to drop the alka seltzer-esque disc into a cup of water. Like this...
In seconds you have a pair of soggy wet underpants! How awesome is that? I would just like to quote the product description and say "remember, it’s better to have damp underpants than no underpants at all!" I might beg to differ on that one but to each his own I guess.
Do I have a picture of the actual underpants after they have received their life water? Nope. Do I so totally wish I did so I could point and giggle and say "ew, look at those!" Heck yes. Have I figured out a reason why anyone would need an emergency pair of wet underwear? Still working on it. If you have got an idea feel free to share. No one will judge.
