The part of the second ad that mentions the "non-sag pouch" that "gives you the mild support that helps fight fatigue" is rather funny. Is it that exhausting for a man to haul around his unsupported genitals?

If you're a guy, and you're willing to purchase undergarments called "Scandals", my guess is your genitals feel fatigued for obvious reasons.

This was before Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Looks more like "Oh, do tell!"
Why is the guy in the first ad showering alone? There's a war going on and they should be trying to save water.

It is interesting to see how the designs evolved for men's underwear. Most people don't even have that Y-window in the front anymore.
I also work with a line of men's underwear, so that's why this is of interest to me.
