  10. Luis says:

    What I want to know is:

    How in the holy hell has no one noticed the HANDCUFFS he has for a belt buckle !?

    This screams AMERICA. No citizen of any other country could put together a picture of this magnitude. LOL

      Except for Sarah Palin…oooh now there’s a time for photoshop maybe the two would be a little less weird if the people switched backgrounds.

  12. Magdalene says:

    I have just lost the will to live. SO FUNNY THOUGH.

  13. Koo-Koo Boy says:

    Is the point that he shredded both his pants AND the flag? So it’s pro U.S. or anti? And is it pro PANTS or anti? Hard to tell what the intended statement was supposed to be!

  14. puppysparkes says:

    When I saw this photo, Bruce Sprinsteen’s born in the USA started playin in my head.

  15. spong says:

    Circa 1993?

  16. Sam says:

    Business in the front, mayhem in the back.

  19. ninjapilgrim says:

    Wow. 1988?
    I had those pants – minus the chain mail.
    They became immodestly unwearable by 1989. Could’a gotten another couple of years out of them if I had chainmail undies.

  20. CJ1960 says:

    If you will only LEAD they would follow, I would follow….

  21. michelle says:

    this is literally, no joke, a picture of my friend taken when he was in high school!!

  22. ursulamajor says:

    My new wallpaper (and hopefully new boyfriend)!

  23. Samael says:

    so he destroyed his pants AND the flagg with that sword?

  24. Sam says:

    Are those british knights shoes, if so, the irony is not lost on me.

  25. Katy says:

    the new rockstar …hahahahaha… 🙂
    very funny!

  26. gaynor says:

    look what the sword done to his jeans

  27. bennie says:

    Proving once again that chain mail is not only fashionable, it is also functional

  28. henry says:

    Even Macgyver would cry!

  29. colleen says:

    His parents regret giving him that sword, he’s ruined all his pants trying to use it

  30. jon says:

    …this is the most baddass thing I have ever seen…I would follow this man.

  31. caleb says:

    sword and the stonedwashed

  32. Swixie says:

    Torn on the Fourth of July.

  33. blow by says:

    One word deffinition of this photo…. RADICAL!

  34. Jillian says:

    I think that the flag is ripped because he was defending it, and his jeans got in the way. What a stud.

  35. Mase says:

    This picture is strangely awesome.

  36. Karen says:

    Is that a Bugle Boy shirt? Body Glove did a similar series of “heat activated” tie-dye shirts and I am certain Bugle Boy ripped it off. Amazing. I don’t know what chainmail is, but if it’s the stuff under his jeans I’m impressed. It looks like he used that sword to slash both his jeans and the flag behind him before the shoot.

    • ~Dune!~ says:

      I’m not sure if that makes you uneducated or just ungeeky.

      Yes, that’s a BB shirt but it’s just plain tie-dye. As far as the Bugle Boy vs Body Glove thing, they BOTH stole the idea/process from a company called Hyper Colour. All discontinued because the process eventually stopped working in the material but often after permanently changing the colour of high heat body areas, leaving most often discoloured armpits.
      Not a plus for anyone.

  37. Stevie B. says:

    Them’s some snakeskin Zubas under them jeans!

  38. Uncle Cheeto says:

    After much mental debate, and to his mom’s chagrin, Tommy Lee opted for the sword prop, leaving the compound bow at home.

  39. mindy says:

    Oh for the love of the flying spaghetti monster someone get the scissors away from Chad!!

  40. allie says:

    SEXY!!!!! hahahaaaa

  41. catherine says:

    Still rockin’ America. All day. All night.

  42. Mr_Dichotomies says:

    He’s way too skinny for that to be chainmail under what’s left of the jeans… Maybe tights that look like chainmail, which would fit in better with his ensemblage.

  43. Ellen says:

    A photo like that would make any mom proud!

  44. Scott says:

    There can be only one!

  45. I think this was an ad for LA Gear

  46. KC says:

    This guy must have left a Dungeons and Dragons tourney for this photoshoot.

  47. JC says:

    The “Flim Flam” is chain mail armor…I think. But the high tops, the cuff belt buckle, and the mullet are what ties it all together.

  48. vivian says:

    You must be a hard-work knight!

  49. catsy says:

    D: “He rode his bike to that photo shoot, with the sword. The jeans looked brand new when he left home.”

    OMG, Thank you for the LOL.

    I also ask, what the flim flam is under those pants? Snake skin?
