One Direction’s Niall Horan often wears his pants hung low and his undies peeking out over the waistband. Now fans can win a pair of Niall’s boxer shorts. Really? Someone wants underwear worn by a boy band member?
According to a report from Irish Central, a British magazine is hosting a contest, and the prize is a pair of Niall’s Calvin Klein boxers.
Sweepstakes and contests promoting bands and other celebrities are a dime a dozen, but one featuring underwear (someone else’s anyway) is fairly rare. The question this raises is how appropriate is this kind of prize given the ages of most of Niall’s fans?
One Direction Â—Niall and band mates Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn MalikÂ—draw a young female crowd. How would you feel if your 12-year-old coveted a pair of some singer’s boxer shorts?
Of course these boxers are signed by the Live While We’re Young hottie himself. Nothing’s been said about whether or not they’ve been washed and dried prior to the contest.
There’s no question this contest will draw thousands of entriesÂ—possibly from all around the world. And if Niall Horan was 30 years old and his fans made up that age group, too, it would be a bit less bothersome.
How appropriate do you think it is for this British magazine to offer up Niall’s underwear for their own promotion? Just look at his sweet little face! No one should handle his undies unless it’s his mom.
