    Well interesting.... C-in2, the underwear company, put out a new video promoting their athletic "Grip" underwear line.
    I received an e-mail with the video this morning. I wear the C-in2 briefs of all kinds and like the "Grip" line and great video.

    C-in2 put it on Facebook, but Facebook objected to the video saying it violated Facebook guidelines by "promoting an idealized physical image"...

    Geez I guess I should take off all my swimming suit and gym pictures off of Facebook......

    I'd have removed it based on the objection that it wasn't nearly objectifying enough, nor did it show the guys faces or really do anything besides show a bunch of underwear.

    Seriously what's the point of a underwear advertisement that isn't objectifying???

    Facebook.. filled with idiots.

    I'm partial to the original video, with Daniel Garofali shot by Rick Day. It tells you more about the product and why you should wear it.

    If guys want to blow their money on overpriced underwear, they should be allowed to do so. icon_biggrin.gif

    Don't knock it 'til you've tried it. I might them them on sale at TJMaxx, but designer underwear is one of the best things that ever happened to me. Sayonara Hanes!

    I buy them off of the site, but always when they are on sale.. and I "sign up" for the newsletter and get an additional 20% off in addition to the sale price. It makes it bearable. The underwear is outstanding, it feels great

    Really! There is no way that they are going to be able to keep up with that one. And I think that is way too intrusive. All of the fitness related pages do the exact same thing. There must have been complaints sent to them but I don't really understand what there is to complain about. Silly!

    Either the underwear isn't very flattering, or he has a small butt for an underwear model.

    I agree, I just busted out laughing when I read that. I almost put the C-in2 video on my FB profile, but no reason to rub their noses in it I suppose.

    I still have Cin2 y-back thongs I bought back in '09. That stuff is a hell of a lot more durable than what you find at Target.

    Bike thongs tend to unravel in the washing machine about a month after I buy them. Fortunately, they're cheap.

    Been buying Underarmour boxer briefs lately as I've lost about 80lbs since '09. Keeps my nuts safe while deadlifting...icon_rolleyes.gif
