America’s favorite avocado-lovin’ member of the Fab Five stripped down for a brand new ad campaign. The internet’s response has been equal parts eye roll, thirst eyes emoji, and a quick rummage for an SAT booklet.
On Thursday, Queer Eye chef Antoni Porowski debuted his new Hanes underwear ad.
Whenever I happen to pose contrapposto, I partner w @Hanes and wear my Comfort Flex Fit Boxer Briefs – they keep everything where it should be comfortably. #VouchForThePouch https://t.co/ihZJgUat62 pic.twitter.com/PSel19bGl9

“Whenever I happen to pose contrapposto, I partner with Hanes and wear my Comfort Flex Fit Boxer Briefs they keep everything where it should be comfortably,” the ad said on Twitter.
Now, obviously, there’s a lot going on here. But, first and foremost contrapposto???

Is that an avocado in your Hanes, or are you just happy to to standing in contrapposto?

Wow I didn't think it would be possible to hate a term more than boywomb but damn if contrapposto didn't accept the challenge.

The Gays™️ rn: I know. Contrapposto. I feel that already.
The Straights™️ in 5 years: I’m really into contrapposto right now.

Porowski’s boxer brief brouhaha is just the latest moment of his ability to cause an internet stir. While the Fab Five came to us as a (very affectionate) group, Porowski garnered the most attention upon the show’s release for his suspect lack of culinary prowess.
