If your Thanksgiving dinner outfit choice is based on how much you plan to eat that night, Stove Top has figured out a way to make your wardrobe selection process a no-brainer with “Thanksgiving Dinner Pants.” And, no, this is not a joke.

The pants themselves are maroon-colored stretch pants that feature a graphic of Stove Top stuffing and a high elastic waistband designed to make you feel comfortable after your second, healthy helping. To promote the $20 pants, Stove Top created an infomercial-like video — you know, those black-and-white, poorly-written and overly-dramatic commercials — in which the brand jokes about using the same material that’s used for astronauts’ underpants. Obviously, they’re joking, but the dramatization gets the point across: These pants are really, really stretchy.
As soon as the news hit the internet, hundreds flocked to the Stove Top site to buy their very own pair of Thanksgiving Dinner Pants. There is now a notice on the site that reads, “Unfortunately, there are no leftovers. Limited-edition, high-fashion Stove Top Thanksgiving Dinner Pants are all sold out. But, if you act now, you can download a copy of the Stove Top Holiday Card.”
So, sorry ladies. It looks like you’ll have to wait until next year to get a pair of Stove Top’s flashy Thanksgiving Pants. On the bright side, Stove Top has pledged to donate $10,000 to Feeding America, an organization that helps fight hunger across the nation.
