Winkers(TM) Introduces Pants That Wink.

EVERETT, Wash., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Winkers(TM), the pants (or jeans) whose rear winks as the wearer walks, are worth a look, if only for entertainment value. The inventor is William A. Jones, a retired father of five and grandfather of seven who lives in Everett, Washington.

Mr. Jones says that the idea came to him when he admired a woman walking towards him and, as men do, checked her out as she passed him. He could have sworn that her elegantly jeans-clad behind sort of winked at him. He then thought that people-watching would be more interesting if their pants were adorned with eyes at the precise fold created by the motion of walking. Mr. Jones experimented with his daughter's jeans and was quite pleased with the result: when he applied his technique of accurate placement, the pants did wink! He then came up with the name Winkers for his invention and consulted a patent attorney in Bellingham and a license and trademark/copyright attorney in Seattle.

The eyes are sassy but there are other designs: a pair of ducks whose bill seem to quack, an owl that blinks, a lion in an elaborate jungle scene, as well as a pair of movie clapboards that spell "action, action" with the wearer's walk.

Mr. Jones' invention can be seen in a YouTube video at where one can order a pair of Winkers in any of these several designs and others, or apply for a license to use the invention (patent-pending), the mark, and/or the copyrights. The video has been downloaded in more than 15 countries already. You can vote on for your favorite Winkers. Check it out, it's fun to watch!
