Finally! Slim T Gives Pot-Bellied Men an Opportunity to Wear a Girdle

Men, infomercials have put hair on your head (Hair Club) and have even increased “that certain part of the male anatomy” (ExtenZe). But one part of your appearance is still lacking.

I’m talking about that big belly hanging down in front of your belt buckle. Sure, you could sign up for a diet program like Nutrisystem or try one of the myriad ab machines available (Ab Rocket, Contour Ab Belt, Ab Circle Pro, etc., etc.). But who has time for that?

Now Slim T offers men everywhere the opportunity to slap on a girdle for an instantly slimmer physique:

Some guy must have seen the infomercial for Kymaro Body Shaper and thought, “Why do women get to have all the best products?”

“You can really tell this was designed for men,” says one gentleman in a frantic effort to reassure males that they will not be wearing a woman’s undergarment. The “12 specially engineered structure panels” are an attempt to make SlimTs look like some kind of cool body armor.

Yet any man worried about transvestism will find the “criss-cross back panel” looks a little too much like bra straps.

The best part of this commercial, however, is the guy at 1:23 who says, “The job market out there is really tough. And with the Slim T, I looked good, I felt good, and that’s why I got the job.” If you are an unemployed man, rest assured that your status is due not to your lack of experience or job skills. It’s that massive gut that is keeping you from being hired! So gird yourself with a SlimT and land that job you’ve always wanted.

Maybe SlimTs could hire William Shatner as a celebrity endorser.

  • I have to agree with Paul on this. I am actually going to buy one, but that part about getting the job because you look good, is a lot of horse crap. I almost felt cheated when I heard the guy say it. It actually cheapens the strength of the ad. And all these years I thought it was my B.A. in Communications that got me a great job.

  • Wait…back in the 60’s or 70’s the legendary Buster Crabbe advertised a shirt like this…for guys who had “a corporation up front”. Can’t remember the product name, though.

  • Reply to no. 3 – it was the “Buster Crabbe T-Shirt”! I am so glad to see that there are a few others that remember!

  • I looked in the mirror this morning and noticed that my pot belly was finally too big not to notice. And the first thing that popped into my 50+ year old brain was Buster Crabbe, the diamond panel, and the “real corporation up front”. I’m still laughing. “Even if you’ve really let yourself go to pot, built up a real corporation up front ….”

  • Buster Crabbe is still the king of older dude fitness! Olympic swimmer, IIRC,

    ‘….even if you’ve built a real corporation up front…’
