Sporting Wardrobe Malfunctions That Are STILL Funny

by Elana

Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson aren't the only famous friends to ever memorialize the "Wardrobe Malfunction." Actually, if you think about the perfect setting or opportunity for a memorable wardrobe malfunction is a sporting event. Athletes, especially of the professional variety, are frequently 110% focused on the task at hand to the point that something could be hinting it's about to go horribly wrong and they'd have no clue, because where is their head? In the game, where it belongs... coach. 

Anyway, if media and time have come together to teach us anything it's that nothing makes an embarrassing moment disappear. We remember everything, forever. These famous wardrobe malfunctions made us laugh then and they're still making us laugh now. They'll make us laugh, later, too. But check them out now because you deserve a reason to roll with laughter today. You earned it!

In 2009 they wanted you to give your all. In 2010 they clarified "your butt" not being part of your all.

People might malfunction on a daily basis and being famous doesn't hinder you from those embarrassing experiences. What is unusual, though, is finding out an intelligent robot has malfunctioned. Really bad.
