Needs Help: Plumbers Crack get usage counts
Deadlock Clock: 24th Jul 2014 11:59:00 PM
The Plumber Crack gag is a classic comedy staple. It is a situation in which a plumber or other blue-collar worker of similar ilk bends to do some task and exposes their butt crack in the process to onlookers. Common stereotypes of the Blue-Collar worker are their apparent lack of hygiene and personal fitness. Keeping in mind the principle of Show, Don't Tell, the (usually) overweight and hirsute character bends down to take a look at something, and their pants fall or get pulled below their waistline. The Reaction Shot of the other characters is typically Played for Laughs. Characters are often far more disgusted by the sight than similar sights of "Mooning". Another similar trope is Wardrobe Malfunction.
Same message, a little cleaner, a little more neutral. Maybe it takes too much away tho... hmm.
