Everyone sweats… even celebrities. And, every celebrity walks the red carpet. However, as most all celebrities know, they don’t want the two to mix, at any point in their career. These unfortunate few didn’t even need the paparazzi to catch them with a awkward sweat armpits.
1. Danny Bonaduce
Danny Bonaduce takes the cake for weirdest sweat location on a man, as well as for strangest t-shirt. His under-manboob sweat proves just how much he sweats in the gym.
2. Jwoww from Jersey Sweaty Shore
One of ‘The Jersey Shore’ cast members caught sweating?! Say it ain’t so. Yet that’s just what happened when Jwoww decided a grey t-shirt was the best idea for a red carpet march, and probably regrets the decision (and the photo).
3. Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz probably wishes she could photoshop the sweat from her brow (and armpit) in this not-so-flattering photo of her wearing a pretty pink dress. Hopefully next time she’ll choose black for a hot day!
4. Marc Anthony Sweats to Impress
Marc Anthony wins points for most impressive sweat performance, sweating through not only a shirt, but also a jacket! Then again, between the layers and being married to Jennifer Lopez, who can blame him?
5. Nervous Sweater Jennifer Carpenter
Jennifer Carpenter looks like she’s a bit nervous having to appear so close to her murderous (on-screen only, of course) and real-life ex-husband Michael C. Hall. Don’t worry Jennifer, you’ll eventually move on, although the unfortunate picture will remain…
6. Robert Pattinson Sweaty Pits
Robert Pattinson may want to pull that beanie off before any more photos are taken, especially if he’s so obviously too warm to be in one. Looks like it’s not just the female stars who’ll suffer for their outfit these days…
7. Victoria’s Sweaty Secret
Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr looks like she needs to invest in some anti-perspirant instead of the perfume she’s holding. Maybe then she won’t have to worry about these photos being taken!
8. Halle the Shameless Sweater
Halle Berry is a modern day strong woman, and show’s it here with her ‘devil-may-care-about-my-sweat’ attitude. Ellen certainly didn’t mind, and in fact assisted in the clean up for Halle!
9. Juliette Lewis
Juliette Lewis really embraces her sweatiness here, even going so far as to show off the guns that have developed because of that sweat. Unfortunately, Juliette doesn’t realize that although we love her guns, we don’t love the sweat that comes with them!
10. Alicia Walks The Sweaty Carpet
Alicia Keys probably wishes she hadn’t chosen to wave as this photo was snapped, proving that she too has a perspiration issue to contend with on the red carpet. Next time, just wear black Alicia!
11. The Hoff Gets Hassled by His Sweaty Pits
I’m sure ‘the Hoff’ never considered how much he’d be sweating when he put his shirt on in the morning. I’m sure, looking back, that he wishes he’d given it at least a little bit of thought. No one Hassles with the Hoff- except sweat!
12. Gerard Sweats in the Spotlight
Gerard Butler gives the camera a classic pose, but didn’t take into account that his armpits are doing some winking of their own. I bet he wishes he’d remembered a strong antiperspirant that particular morning!
For every successful marriage proposal there are a handful of embarrassingly awkward, funny marriage proposals. For your entertainment, we’ve compiled a list of the most sweat-inducing, awkward marriage proposals on the interwebs.
1. The Ellen DeGeneres “No”
In front of a live studio audience and 2.74 million viewers at home, this brave young lover put his heart on the line, live on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Unfortunately, the romantic gesture fell on deaf ears and made for an extra sweaty moment for the guy, the girl and the audience that witnessed, first-hand, awkwardness defined.
2. Food Court Proposal Fail
This young Romeo should have known that his odds of success would decrease exponentially when he chose the food court as the setting for his proposal, however, in his defense, we were all surprised to see that the Neil Diamond serenade didn’t assist in sealing the deal.
3. Baseball Game Proposal Gone Bad
Either the Twins were losing big-time or it was the 7th inning stretch but with all eyes on the public proposal, instead of the game, this feisty female fan gives a whole new meaning to America’s Favorite Pastime… by that we mean she passes.
4. Kiss Cam CasaNova
When the kiss cam goes around any arena, it’s always nice to see couples, young and old, showing their love and affection for each other. In this case, however, this young Casanova passes up a kiss and goes for gold – maybe he should have just taken that kiss. Good thing he wore black!
5. Houston, We Don’t Have Liftoff
When you’re a Houston Rockets fan, you don’t have a lot to cheer for so, when a marriage proposal takes place at mid-court during halftime, you’d like to see SOMETHING go well that night. Well, sorry to disappoint, but let’s just say that the players weren’t the only ones who broke a sweat during their brutal loss at home.
6. Mosh Pit Mood Killer
Departing from sports for a second, here’s a brave young lover that takes the initiative to propose to his girl at a rock concert. Unfortunately, the sweaty atmosphere of Ruff ‘n’ Tumble mosh pit must not be the best “mood setter” because his Big Question is a big failure.
7. Shot on Goal… Denied
Ever heard the term, The International Language of Love? Well, in this clip, you don’t necessarily need to understand the language to recognize the noun rejection (r-jkshn). Even in what appears to be chilly weather, this dude must be sweating profusely after that blocked attempt on goal.
8. Smile… You’re Rejected on Camera!
We’ll never know why these men insist upon asking for their woman’s hand (before getting her pre-approval), but yet, they keep providing these awkward gems anyway – in ultra public places no less! That said, following the crooked path of his predecessors above, this guy pops the question on television and hits the same wall. Ouch!
If you’re planning on popping that question in the near future, make sure you’re not the next awkward marriage proposal on YouTube. Arm yourself with SweatBlock and make sure your confidence is up to par.
It’s easy to find a gift for your teen these days with endless new gadgets, fashion fads, and Amazon.com. But finding a unique gift that is useful, memorable, and doesn’t break the bank is a little bit harder to find. Here is a list of some of our favorite unique gifts and stocking stuffers that may not be on your teens wish list, but could have your teen thanking you long after their new designer jeans go out of style.
1. STANCE SOCKS ($6-$20)
“Shame on Stance for making me care about socks!”
These might be the loudest, most expensive socks you’ve ever laid eyes on, but they’re worth every penny. Sure, you could buy your teen a discount brick of Hanes or Fruity Tootie socks that feel slightly better than a set of sandpaper slippers. Or, you could really make their holiday by giving them a stylish pair of Stance socks. What makes these socks worth giving? Not only are they made of ultra comfortable material that will make your teen’s feet happy, but they come in every color and pattern to match any personality type. The sock designs feature everything from NFL All-Stars to scenic palm trees. This is one unique gift your teen will love. You can grab a pair at Stance.com or spend a little less and pick some up over at Amazon.com
2. HAMMOCK ($17-$50)
“My daughter is absolutely in love with this.”
Hammocks have been around since the days of Columbus, but more recently they have made a big comeback. Technology has made them lightweight, easy to pack, heavy duty, and comfortable. Not to mention they are easy to set up anywhere – on the beach, in the backyard, at a park, in the woods, on the front porch, you name it. Your teen will love being able to ‘mock around with their friends anywhere, anytime. One mom said her teen bought one for herself because she loves to take them to sporting events in order to lounge around with friends. Hammocks are the bomb.com.
3. SCRATCH MAPS ($18-$50)
“This was a gift for my son who loves to travel. The poster went up immediately and he is marking off places he has been. He loves it.” – Kathy G.
If your teen loves to travel, a scratch-off-where-you’ve-been map displays their past adventures in a “dynamic and eye-catching way.” This is the ultimate record for your teen’s travels by revealing vibrant colored countries underneath a removable top print one satisfying scratch at a time. Scratch maps are the perfect gift for the globe-trotting teen in your life. Lucky for you, one of the most popular scratch maps is just under $50. Grab it here.
4. NAIL CLIPPER SET ($7-$15)
“I’m giving sets to my kids for Christmas… instead of iPads!”
Never underestimate the power of good nail clippers. Making a good impression is important for most teens; Starting school, meeting new people, dating, and interviewing for jobs are just a few places where a set of dirt-filled fingernails might derail an otherwise great encounter. Clipping ones’ nails is low-hanging fruit for making a good impression. Unfortunately, when a teen is faced with the choice of buying video games or investing in a pair of reliable nail clippers, the clippers lose EVERY time. That’s where you come in. Save a teen from a potentially embarrassing situation (and a host of diseases that might be hiding under those uncut nails) and grab them a set of nail clippers they’ll use ’til they’re 80. We recommend this set, it’s got everything you need for fingers and toes 😉
5. COMFORTER -OR- BLANKET ($25-$50)
“Bought this for my basement dwelling daughter to help her keep warm on those long nights… She LOVES IT!”
I know what you’re thinking at this point, “Seriously? Socks, nail clippers and now a blanket!?” The best gifts are not the ones that are the most expensive or the most popular. Blankets are special. Starting from that glorious day of our first breath we’re wrapped in a soft, warm blanket. Most of us carried one around until we were 5 or 6 years old. I still remember the blanket I had throughout middle school and high school, it was awesome. I’d pay a handsome fee to find that thing again. Wanna make a lasting impact on your teen? Get them a soft, warm blanket. Every time they bundle up for a good movie, wrap up for a long night of video games, or snuggle with that special someone, they’ll think of you. To save you some time, we’ve found some great blankets for under $50. You can’t go wrong with this super soft, 5-star blanket. Or, for something a bit warmer, check out one of the highest rated down comforters on Amazon.
6. SWEATBLOCK ANTIPERSPIRANT ($18)
“My mom got me SweatBlock a couple of years ago because she knows I’ve always had sweating issues. It’s seriously one of the best gifts she’s ever given me!”
Not an obvious choice, but it ticks all the right boxes: affordable, unique, useful, and “life-changing”. If you’ve got a sweaty teen, SweatBlock could be that perfect gift. SweatBlock is a one-of-a-kind antiperspirant that stops excessive and embarrassing sweat for up to 7 days per use. It’s not your Dads antiperspirant, this stuff can stop even the most stubborn sweat. High school and college are hard enough without having to deal with the teasing, jeering, and embarrassment that accompany sweaty underarms and pit stains. For a teen who struggles with excessive sweat or nervous sweat, SweatBlock is “game-changing.” So, hit a “home run” with your teen this holiday and snag a box of sweat-stopping confidence from SweatBlock.
7. TILE KEY FINDER ($25).
“A gift for our daughter. She frequently misplaces her keys. She says that this is one of the best presents she has ever received!”
Do you have a teen that is constantly losing their phone or keys? Amazon’s description of Tile Mate says it easily loops onto keychains or attaches to anything you don’t want to lose so you can find it fast (phones, keys, cameras, backpacks). Ring your things. Use your smartphone to make your Tile Mate ring when it’s nearby but out of sight. Not only can it find your things, but it can also find your phone. This little gadget will save your teen a lot of headaches.
8. FINANCIAL BOOK
“Perfect gift for those just starting to make their own money.”
Every teen needs to learn about finances. Finding the right book that teaches what they need to know in an interesting way is the tricky part. We know this is not something your teen will get excited about when they unwrap it, but it’s something that will have a lasting impact. If every American read Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover”, credit card companies would go out of business.
Dave’s book is fantastic, but here are some other books to get your teen excited about being a financially responsible:
Do you have a guitar playing teen on your gifting list? This Pick Punch is a unique alternative to a gifting a regular old guitar pick. Your teen will never have to be pickless again. With this, your teen can create custom guitar picks using household items like old credit cards, Cds, and old ID cards. With over 1,200 reviews raving about the uniqueness and practicality of this gift, you can’t go wrong. One reviewer said she gave it to her brother who travels a lot and uses the Pick Punch to make mementos out of old hotel key cards. The possibilities are endless with this one.
10. RESTAURANT GIFT CARDS
“Ways to my heart: BUY me food, MAKE me food, BE food” – Any Teen, Every Teen
Every teen could use a gift card to one of their favorite fast food stops – especially college students. There is nothing better than a good meal you didn’t have to pay for when you are a starving college student or a busy high schooler. Here’s some of the most popular gift cards available on Amazon.com.
You can’t go wrong with stuffing one of these delicious gifts in your teens stocking this Christmas or in a card for their next birthday.
It’s no secret that sweating is somewhat synonymous with big stage appearances, but there are some performers that go above and beyond the norm. Below is a list of 9 perspiring performers and sweaty singers that have multiple talents; entertaining the masses and sweating profusely while doing so.
Considering he always has a hoard of water bottles within arms reach, it’s safe to say that Robin Williams is well aware of his notorious problems with perspiration. While there aren’t any PG-rated videos of Robin Williams’ standup act to be found, a quick look at this reel of the spastic sounds and movements that he makes during his act is all the proof you’d need to be a believer – you might even start sweating yourself!
Speaking of spastic sounds and movements, James Brown is famous for two things: gyrating around the stage and dripping sweat while doings so. As one of the greatest funk singers of all time (if not THE greatest), Brown is a true entertainer.
The pattern here would be spastic movement, however, famed comedian Chris Farley has a little extra weight that might add to his tendency to break a sweat. As a cast member of SNL, whether he’s a motivational speaker or a Chippendale’s dancer, we’ve all seen Chris Farley strut his sweaty stuff.
The first step to recovery is recognizing that you have a problem. That said, notice in the very first moments of this video that Louis Armstrong already has a hanky in his hand and is prepared for the inevitable worst. Even though Armstrong will go down in history as a world-class trumpeter, singer and performer, you can safely put him on the list of sweaty stars.
Most women would argue that women don’t sweat, they glow. Well, despite all of those popular beliefs, we would argue that there is one woman that sweats profusely – Whitney Houston. A glamorous diva or not, because she’s visibly sweating before the song even starts, it’s clear that she’s equipped with both vocal pipes and water pipes.
Sure, it’s always hot under the lights of a stadium concert stage but Dave Matthews and his toe-tapping ditties tend to drum up a whole new level of perspiration. Heck, he even admits it himself! Check out the video below … if it’s difficult to hear, Dave says, “… have a good time … at least I know that I will sweat a lot this evening.”
Having made a living off of his high-energy performances, sprinting back and forth in his jeans and colored cowboy shirts, under the blast of pyrotechnics, Garth Brooks is a sweaty mess just about 10 minutes into his performances. Although he doesn’t allow live footage to be posted online, anyone who has seen a live show can tell you that A) it was the greatest live show they’ve ever seen and B) the man drips sweat like no other – but can you blame him?
Combining the talents of all of the above, Tom Wilson is a comedian that plays guitar and, more famously, played Biff on the Back to the Future series. In addition to his many other talents, Wilson has also been known to write haikus and break a sweat on stage – join the club Biff!
Best known as Tucker on the hit Ben Stiller film, There’s Something About Mary, Lee Evans is a British comedian that has made his mark as a shameless sweater. Although he wears a rather dapper suit, he works up a raging sweat as he paces the floor, crashes to the ground and flails his limbs all over the place.
If you haven’t figured out your costume for this year’s Halloween festivities, it’s time to get serious.
You can’t just pick any costume. There are considerations to be made here…
If you’re using SweatBlock, the sky is the limit because you can forget about sweating through your costume. If not, the only thing scarier than a Star Wars Stormtrooper is a sweaty one 🙂
We’ve taken the 2015 list of most “googled” costumes and provided a “sweat rating” that takes the following into consideration:
Weight and Layers: How many layers of clothing is required? Is the costume a heavy one? (think Stormtrooper or Batman)
Make-up or Mask: Any costume requiring heavy make up or suffocating masks are bound to crank up the body temp. (think Joker, zombie, or Jason)
Difficulty: This isn’t so much about sweat as it is about last minute costume planning, though we have included in a weighting the emotional difficulty of actually pulling it off and the nerves that might be required to “put yourself out there.” (think Hulk Hogan or sexy anything)
Without further explanation, here are the top googled costumes of 2015 with a SweatBlock twist:
Star Wars Costumes
With the much anticipated movie release, it’s the most searched of the year. Our rating were based on Stormtroopers, Aliens, Darth Vadar, and Sythes. We consider Luke, Lea, or Hans costumes quick and easy and certainly less than 4.8 unless your are trying to pull-off Lea with Jabba the Hut.
A perennial favorite and one that can be pulled off quickly and without too much trouble. Add a point for wigs or revealing attire.
In most cases, superheroes are sporting tight, form-fitting get-ups. Some, even have addition stuffing sewn for fake muscle tone. Both mean rising body heat. If you’re going for the Wonder Woman look, thing might get chilly.
Harley Quinn Costume
Harley is a tough one to pull off without leather and lost of make-up.
Full disclosure: There are really 2 types of Batmen out there. The early 70’s style in glorified pajamas and the more modern Batman with heavy capes, gloves, shirts, fake muscles, boots, etc. This rating is based on the latter, though it may apply for the former if your friends are particularly brutal.
In almost every case this is the last minute “paint some whiskers on my face.” If not, add points for fake fur. Consider not being a cat simply because it’s lame 🙂
While make up is required to really pull this off, the overalls allow for breathability that makes all the body temp difference. Best done in pairs.
Minnie Mouse Costume
As far as last minute costumes are concerned, this one is akin to the cat. Add points if your are doing anything more than your old, repurposed Disney “ears” hat and some face paint.
What would Halloween be without the witch. Done right, the wardrobe is heavier, make-up is thick, hat is required, and hauling around a broom stick are all required.
A classic for sure. If you can pull it off, good for you. The rating is .5 higher than a pirate because it takes guts to do.
We’re obsessed with stopping sweat. And we’ll do anything to get your attention because we truly believe we have the best solution for controlling sweat and boosting confidence. So, here’s our latest attempt at grabbing your attention… a comprehensive, completely useless list of famous quotes about sweating.
