While Kevin Costner is rushing to get 32 OTS machines manufactured and deployed for BP, the gals at Hooters are joining the Gulf oil relief efforts in true Hooters fashion. They are putting down their trays of artery hardening chicken wings and fried pickles so they can slip off their stockings— all in the name of a good cause, of course.
Hooters Girls nationwide are donating their torn pantyhose to Indigo Oceanic and Matter of Trust in an effort to help absorb the oil which is devastating the Gulf of Mexico. Through the program, ingeniously titled Project Pantyhose, Hooters expects to collect over 100,000 pairs of hose which will be used to create booms, possibly soaking up 1 million gallons of oil.
In a statement which can only be expected from an executive of a company called Hooters who employs scantily clad women while serving unhealthy fare, Vice President of Marketing Mike McNeil said, “Who would have thought our Hooters Girls’ pantyhose would have a use other than making the girls’ legs look great.”
Project Pantyhose runs for 4 weeks at all 380 domestic Hooters locations.
