In our new “Underwear Scene of the Week” feature, we aim to highlight all the classic underwear scenes in new and old movies alike. What better way to measure culture’s change throughout the years than in underwear? This week’s Underwear Scene of the Week is probably one of the most popular underwear movie scenes in history: the dance scene from Risky Business.
1983’s Risky Business tells the classic story of a teenager cutting loose while his parents are away on vacation, and boy does Tom Cruise cut loose. Seriously, there’s all the bits about prostitutes, starting a brothel to pay for destroying a Porsche (that POOR PORSCHE), it all just looked really illegal and stressful. The highlight of the movie in our eyes, however, is Tom Cruise’s rum and coke induced underwear dance to Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock N’ Roll.”
If you won’t admit to recreating this entire dance scene in your living room at least once in your life, well then you’re lying to yourself. Just as this movie is totally classic, the white briefs Tom Cruise are totally classic as well. Now he probably just wears weird Scientology underwear… is that a thing?
Oh well. As Tom Cruise (almost) says in the movie, “Underwear… There is no substitute.”
Watch the classic scene below and let us know if you’ve got any favorite underwear movie scenes![youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2UVsyVLLcE&w=560&h=315]
