Ever find yourself doing unthinkable things to fit into your favorite outfit? Desperate times call for desperate measures as actress Patrícia Dos Reis portrays in the hilarious video below — roughly translated from Portuguese as "How to put on pants" — by Brazilian skit comedy show, Galo Frito.

And we’ll go to some scary lengths to squeeze into a pair of skinny jeans.

Dos Reis is shown trying everything to get her size 38 hips into those pair of size 34 pants. From wiggling around on her bed, beating them up and asking a friend to help hoist them up, to briefly eating a bowl of lettuce, buttering up her legs and yes, even dynamite a la Wile E. Coyote.

Fashion or foe?

All kidding aside, did you know that skinny jeans can be hazardous to your health? According to HealthCentral.com, a 2013 study of over 2,000 men who wore skinny jeans found that:

  • 50% suffered groin discomfort
  • 25% had bladder problems
  • 20% experienced a twisted testicle (O.M.G.!)

Let’s not forget to add fungal infections, low sperm counts and urinary tract infections to the mix.

If you're having trouble with skinny jeans, maybe it's better just to move on. After all, you don't want to twist a testicle. Barbell Denim makes good-looking jeans for people who have muscular legs and can't fit into those hipster store skinny jeans. You can go dancing in them or workout in them, they're said to be that comfortable and forgiving. And yes, you will make your testicles happy.

Now, without further ado, here's the clip!
