Depending on the day, just putting pants on in general could be a struggle. So, the idea of doing it without the use of one’s hands might seem unfathomable.
But a YouTuber recently demonstrated how it’s done and made it look like a modern dance skit in the process.
Watch how he puts on his pants without his hands in 45 seconds to the tune of “It’s the Final Countdown”:
While I can’t say I could achieve this feat under any circumstances, I’m still going to offer my criticism.
1. Those are stretch pants. If this were truly going to be a challenge, I’d like to see it in jeans. I’d even let him have a pass with the zipper and the button at the end — just getting up a stiff pair of denim in this way would be impressive enough for me.
2. Then there’s the issue of validity. Did he really pass the test even with his stretchy pants? Did the pants make it all the way up? Toward the end, you can see here’s a quick cut in the footage, which might suggest he had to finish pulling them up in the back during the intermission.
Either way, the hip-twisting method to wiggle up one’s pants has caught the attention of many, garnering more than 1.4 million hits on YouTube after being posted over the weekend.
