Technique of putting on pants without using your hands; the imagery is a bit beautiful [a sarcastic expression usually meaning something is awkward to look at]…

Comments from Sina Weibo:


What’s the point of this…


Why are his knees so black/dark/dirty?


Watching this is really unbearable, I keep wanting to lend a hand to pull it up.


I hope someone will go forward and hit him.


Is this training done to become an outstanding handicapped person?


Requesting a technique for jacking off without using your hands.


Just what is the purpose of learning this technique/skill?


I feel like I’m almost 20 years old and still don’t know how to put on my pants. Also, fatties shouldn’t bother trying [this]… I need to go get my pants patched up.


Just tried this, and ruined three pairs of pants!


Very difficult to watch, I just want to lend a hand [to help pull the pants up].


Wouldn’t a handstand have done it?


This image was too beautiful, I couldn’t help watching it several times~


Watched it a few times, can’t resist, have to go find a pair of pants to put on now.

If you are curious, here is the original video, with music, from Taiwan on YouTube (copy on Youku for mainland China readers):

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.

    “Requesting a technique for jacking off without using your hands.” – Haha, there’s always one.

      1. Become a Yoga master
      2. Use your mouth

      • Edgar

        1. Become master Yoda
        2. Use the force

      • Boris

        Have you tried it?

    • Connor

      Let someone else do it for you.

      • David

        I was waiting for the common sense reply.

  • This is very disturbing…I feel dirty now

    • Boris

      I think it lacks bukakke.

  • YourSupremeCommander

    This is how I do it without using my hands, I tell the girl to do it for me.

    • Boris

      Is that before or after you ask her to make you a sandwich?

      • YourSupremeCommander

        After, because the pants can wait. And also if she wants to fondle me a bit more, its more convenient.

  • vonskippy

    Simple minds are easily amused.

    • Boris

      You should know.

  • KamikaziPilot

    Maybe if I was 20 I could do that but now I’d probably fall over and pull a muscle or something.

    • Boris

      To be young again!

  • JabroniZamboni

    They question is not how, but why? What a fruitful life this guy must have consecrating so much time to learn such a beneficial skill. Could have potty trained himself much quicker.

  • Anna Presman

    Looks like a new novelty dance. Just put it in a rap song and you have a hit.

  • Kai

    Meh, some people are just negative, while others might chuckle and move on (lots of forwards this one).

    That said, I didn’t get the impression they were so mean-spirited. They look pretty normal to me in terms of reactions. Plus, as far as mean-spirited comments go, we see a lot of them by cS commenters on other cS posts involving silly/fun stuff. Seems kinda universal.

    I liked the music in the video.

  • Don’t Believe the Hype

    Slow news day

  • Mighty曹

    I’ll be more impressed if his arms were amputated.

  • Freddi BuBu

    Looks like the young dude spends quite a bit of time on his knees – anyhow, this should also conveniently serve as a”coming out” video for his family……

    • Mighty曹

      The succeeding story is betteras a ‘coming out’ video.

  • elizabeth

    Haha, very good exercise in the privacy of your home although I won’t be surprised if competitions were organized to see who’s the fastest.

    Great idea for multitasking.

  • wingedgenius

    Wow! Is that the same person? I can’t help but laugh at all of this! XD
