Pants, Magic Pants!

.
I watched a classic movie the other day, a movie I had not seen since I was a child, a movie I had seen at least 20 times thanks to my chilhood friend who had it playing on her VCR non-stop, The movie is Labyrinth, about a goblin king and a girl and a labyrinth etc etc, the story is not very important and upon seeing it recently, I began to notice something I had not noticed previously as an innocent, my-little-pony-loving, innocent, pre-pubescent, innocent girl-child...

David Bowie's pants. That's right, It would seem his magic goblin tights have a lead role in this film, not only that, the camera seems inexplicably drawn to focus the entire scene shot around his crotch. If you notice in the above picture even the lifeless puppets seem to be staring at it.

There's a song in this movie (why Yes! you'll be glad to hear it is a semi-musical!) the song is called 'Dance, Magic Dance', which is a ridiculous concept but if you substitute the words 'dance' for 'pants' the song makes a lot more sense.
