French man invents underwear that could end plumber’s crack in our lifetime
Adrien Herve-Pellissier has had enough.
After seeing the backsides of too many construction workers Adrien Herve-Pellissier, a 24-year-old Frenchmen, has committed himself to solving the world’s butt-crack epidemic. Catering to asses that peak out of every ill-fitting pair of jeans, Herve-Pellissier created le sourire de plombier, a boxer that covers plumber’s crack from unwanted attention.
Tradesmen and women will no longer have to air their dirty behinds for onlookers to gawk at. Observers will no longer have to bleach their eyeballs to erase the intimate visual of an exposed crack.
Herve-Pellissier has restored order to the world with bold undergarment technology. Explaining this creation, Herve-Pellissier told the Local, “The underwear has a large elastic band on it, you see, so when you squat down we don’t have to see your arse.”
Yet Herve-Pellissier’s good deeds don’t stop there—he is looking to expand the company to include womenswear and put inventory in shops as well as online stores. This expansion is due to the vocal supporters, as Herve-Pellissier says, “A lot of people laugh when they hear about the underwear, but in a positive way. I get a lot of encouragement from all kinds of people: men, women, young, and old.”
The world has spoken, then—everyone hates seeing cracks.
Although the praise is appreciated, Herve-Pellissier wants people to know, “I’m not changing the world.”
Such a modest man. As an ode to the inventor, here is an image of the chaotic world before his invention and the world after.
