"YouTube user Now 夠了沒 has broadcast a genius method of putting on pants.
It is one that forgoes the often irritating and time-consuming use of hands.
No doubt this is why the internet was invented."
(Buzzfeed link - includes animated .gifs & embedded video; soundtrack: "The Final Countdown")

Of course, it's gone viral - with other YouTube uploaders attempting the same feat.
Here's a few of the standouts:

*Australia entry! (currently viral on Facebook: STRAYA version of putting jeans on NO HANDED!!! (soundtrack: "The Final Countdown")
*Israeli version! Putting on pants with no hands! (soundtrack: "The Final Countdown")
*Beth Rainbow: Putting on Jeans with No Hands (soundtrack: Cher - "Believe")
*a solid attempt: Putting on jeans with no hands (soundtrack: Theme from "Rocky")
*RACE! (NSFW language): Putting on pants without hands challenge (soundtrack: DJ Tiësto - "Wasted")
*Brent Black: I put pants on with no hands (soundtrack: David Guetta & Showtek - "Bad" ft. Vassy)

And some historical artifacts:

*Putting on pants without hands - possibly the original (from 2009)? No soundtrack because it's a tutorial.
*No hands pants dance (from 2010). Very fast - 3 seconds from pantsless to pantson! (soundtrack: OK Go "A Million Ways")
*pullin my pants up with no hands ;) Pants down and up again in 16 seconds (no soundtrack)

So this is primarily aimed at soccer players?

Isn't this going to put a lot of stress on the crotch seam and make the pants wear out faster?

...he asked, as though it were a serious suggestion.

I won't be impressed until I see the flies getting done up the same way.

Here are proper pants skills.

Sadly, he will be sued, because under American copyright law The Final Countdown can only be used in conjunction with Gob-style magic acts.

Surely you must be mistaken.

When will the oppressive pantriarchy cease its oppressive fabricing of our nether regions?!

You would think a donut eating culture would have come up with this first.

A dead Quaker: "Sadly, he will be sued, because under American copyright law The Final Countdown can only be used in conjunction with Gob-style magic acts."

I presume that Now 夠了沒 only released this video after being advised by his international legal counsel that this could, in fact, qualify as a "GOB-style magic act." I hope that said counsel was diligent enough to warn him that such a designation might be threatened by the subtle distinction between illusions and tricks.

Direct link to YouTube video so that you don't have to load and watch a half-dozen GIF versions of the video when you're only interested in watching the damn video. And so that you don't have to give Buzzfeed any clicks.

I'm not really sure what's happened over the years, but, when WE were young, getting your pants OFF quickly, without using your hands, was considered a useful skill.... with bonus points for being able to do it at midnight, on a Saturday, in the back seat of a '57 Chevy.. with "Satisfaction" playing on the AM radio....

But, hey, if you youngsters are impressed with this, so be it....

(I used the Buzzfeed link because it had the GIFs - so people could preview bits of the video without having to actually load it up, since not everyone is able to/inclined to watch videos)

Gear Dog, I'm a 60 year old woman, and I just wasted 30 minutes watching these videos and then forwarding the links to friends.

What is the matter with me?



BRB, gotta go see if I can do this

I can achieve the same effect with a few carefully placed ants.

Crying with laughter. This had better go viral because it would be such a great party game for drunk people.

I spent the whole video making a sound like a leaky balloon, especially the last part when he starts doing lunges to push the jeans up to his waist.

I don't know about you guys, but I've been saving time in the morning for years with all the tips included in this video. This includes the pants technique, too.
