While we wait to find out what the prequel 300: Rise of an Empire (formerly titled 300: Battle of Artemisia/Artemisium) to action favorite 300 has in store, we'd like to turn your attention to something amusing and ridiculous. If you've always dreamed of sporting the same duds as King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and his fighting Spartans, behold Museum Replica's 300 Briefs.
Yes, we're talking about a pair of leather underwear that the company constructed with input from 300 graphic novel creator Frank Miller. The licensed costume piece features adjustable rear snaps and is available up to an extra large. You Magnum sized fellas will just have to head to the battlefield in a loincloth or something. The manliness is almost too much for us to bear — that and the extremely unflattering crotch pouch. One reviewer had this gem to offer: "Have them on a full size [sic] 300 Spartan. I could not let him go without pants! Ladies seem to like the look. No I did not try them on."
300: Rise of an Empire stars Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, Rodrigo Santoro (reprising his role as King Xerxes, the god-king of Persia), Callan Mulvey, Hans Matheson, Jack O'Connell and Lena Headey. In the upcoming movie, "the Greek general Themistocles battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god Xerxes." 300: Rise of an Empire storms theaters on August 2.
