Sometimes used in promotional materials in ways that seem gratuitous or Out of Character
, not completely unlike the Boobs-and-Butt Pose
When adding examples, it is encouraged that you link to pictures or videos demonstrating the pose. Within the limits of fair use, of course.
- One of the very first images the public got of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt had Panty take this pose◊. It is currently the page image for the show.
- My Little Pony Equestria Girls Rarity and Twilight take the pose◊ Rarity is an exuberant fashionista, so foppish poses are par of the course. It seems a bit stranger with Twilight Sparkle, until you remember that she has a tendency to take charge of situations, and that lecturing people (is what she does best).
- In Niels, the new guy who was hired into Niels' crime syndicate has some very set mental representations on what a gay person should look and act like. He knows that Neils is bisexual; that is enough for him to classify him as "fag" and dress him up in his mind as a stripper, complete with pink, see-through, skimpy outfit, makeup, jewelry, and an extra-hammy, hip-thursting version of this pose. When he finds out that the guy who hired him, Neils' second-in-command, whom he thought was pretty cool, sleeps with Neils, his mental image of him instantly shifts into a variation of the same stereotype.
