Charles Barkley in a dress for Weight Watchers

Charles Barkley, the venerable Round Mound of Rebound, decided to drop some of his mound and slim down. He lost 42 pounds with Weight Watchers, and now he wants other guys to join him. So he put on a dress (video below). It's a nice dress, maybe a little modest. But nice. Though I'm not sure dressing in drag is going to convince manly men that joining Weight Watchers isn't a "woman's thing." Still, it's great to see Sir Charles play around with gender norms...and he's got a great line at the end of the spot. Now where's that chocolate cheesecake I had lying around....
