Another ad campaign battles baggy trousers

With all the certainty of the changing tides, marginal politicians will eventually grab for publicity by bitching about young people and their pants. The city of Dallas campaigned against baggy pants three years ago, and now New York state senator Eric Adams is putting up billboards in Brooklyn in an attempt to "Stop the sag." Adams also made a video (below) in which he slots baggy pants into a chronology of negative racial stereotyping. It's almost refreshing that more urgent issues like health care and unemployment have sailed so far over Adams's head that he can trip over minor issues like pants. And like so many before him, he's still missing the real point. It's not that our nation's pants are too low, it's that we have to wear pants at all. Via AgencySpy.
