  • Joel and the bots sing this song as a reaction to all the needlessly short togas the men wore in the Hercules movie they were watching.

    The Urban Dictionary describes a "buffalo shot" as "A brief flash of genitalia captured on film, possibly by accident." Must be a 'regional' sort of term. I had to look it up. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • From MST3K Ep. 410 (Aug 22, 1992) - "Hercules Against The Moon Men". (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Crow: Joel, I hate movies where the men wear shorter skirts than the women.

    Tom: Yeah, I can just imagine a scene from Ancient Greece: "Oh, hi, Hercules, have a seat. Noooo!!"

    Joel: You are so right, my little itty buddies. That's why we've put together a presentation. It's a little thing we like to call: PANTS!

    Tom: (singing) Pants!

    Crow: Pants!

    Bots: Sing the praises of pants!

    Joel: Nothing better shows my taste than what I wear below my waist!

    Tom: Say! Pants! Hoo hoo!

    Crow: Pants!

    Bots: Sing the praises of pants!

    Tom: They help me suck in my gut; they always cover up my butt! Huh? Pants!

    Crow: Pants!

    All: Sing the praises of pants!

    Crow: Wear them and you're a cool guy as long as you zip up your fly!

    Tom: Zip! Pants!

    Crow: Pants!

    Bots: Sing the praises of pants!

    Joel: (spoken) That's right, ladies and gentlemen! Consider the PANT! You know, the Pants Association urges you to wear your pants at least three times a day!

    Crow: The great men of our time have all worn pants! Roosevelt! Churchill! de Gaulle! Gandhi!- Well, almost all of them!

    Tom: Dolphins! One of the smartest mammals on earth. Do they wear pants? NO! But they wish they did! That's how smart they are!

    Joel: What keeps our legs all warm and hot?

    All: Pants!

    Crow: What prevents a buffalo shot?

    All: Pants!

    Tom: What do they got that I ain't got?

    All: Pants.

    Tom: Well, you can say that again! Huh?

    If TMMS ever start up again, 'pants' may be a good potential theme. Quite a few songs about pants alone, not just this one. 'Clothing' has already been done, but there's an idea about limited themes that we're kicking around. The show has to come back first.

    Oh I'm not arguing the title of the song...just noting the error I made in the song banner for the step file *heh* :)

    Though the graphic I used for the song banner was from the "Hike Up Your Pants" song. I felt it fit better :)

    At the end of the episode, the closing credits give a writing credit for 'Ode to Pants'. I've got the tape somewhere... I'm sure YouTube of one of those sites can confirm that.

    And wearing pants at least 3 times a day is still good advice. Washing them at least once a month is a good idea as well.
    If you don't wear your pants, the police will taser you and that leads to DEEP HURTING...DEEP HURTING...

    Back in 2003 or so I actually made a Stepmania step file to this *heh* Though at the time I thought the song was called "Tribute to Pants".
