VIDEO: Amy Sedaris Tries on Some Terrible "Weekender" Pants, Dances Around, Makes Jimmy Fallon Fall Out of His Chair

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

On last night's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, one of our favorite people ever, Amy Sedaris, put on a pair of Maidenform "Weekender" pants (she got them free in the mail, she said) and danced around in them. What are "Weekender" pants? According to the Maidenform website, they're Fat Free Dressing that are "perfect for the woman on the go." Maidenform also claims they're "figure-flattering," with a "built-in firm control boyshort," with "no VPL (visible panty line)."

Boy, did Amy Sedaris prove them wrong.

(She also cooked hot dogs on a rake, and our sister site Eater National has the video to prove it.)
