There’s lots of news coming out of the Winter Olympics taking place in Sochi, Russia right now. We’re not all about covering who wins gold, but we’ll report on the ridiculous fashunz, the more absurd the better. If you missed out on the freestyle skiing sessions, you might not have caught skier Henrik Harlaut losing his shit, literally.
The Swedish athlete wore some of the baggiest pants out there, even for skiing standards. As he tried to pull of a switch double, it was apparent the sagginess of his pants were giving him some problems. Sure enough, he wipes out. But in his second attempt he lands it gracefully, stretch blue snakeskin print undergarments showing and all. "I've skied like that the past 10 years. It is what it is,” he adds.
Luckily he was wearing suspenders or else there would have been some skin flashing going on. Then the Russian police would have had to escort him to The Gulags for indecent exposure or something like that. Watch the whole thing unfold on the NBC Olympics website.
