LBJ Orders Pants

February 5th, 2011 by

An animated version of a phone call president Lyndon Johnson made to order some pants.

In 1964, Lyndon Johnson needed pants, so he called the Haggar clothing company and asked for some. The call was recorded (like all White House calls at the time), and has since become the stuff of legend. Johnson’s anatomically specific directions to Mr. Haggar are some of the most intimate words we’ve ever heard from the mouth of a President. Found at Vimeo from Put This On.
