    I came across this while in the process of dubbing some old VHS tapes on to some DVD's....Not for sure on the year but the tape had some other stuff on it from 1995...Enjoy. P.S. the tape quality is bad in spots

    Was one of the requirements to be in that video that you had to wear shorts two sizes too small? I thought you guys had to let the boys breathe?

    just out of curiosity in todays ups how many warning letters would sexy joe have pulled? one for getting the in the driver's side, not grabbing the hand rail and crossing in front of the truck. old joe would have been fired in my building for that video. or at least some butt of a manager would have tried.

    awful methods...not including one-arming a large box WITH diad (no opposite corners)...I'm sure corporate saw the vid and issued a written warning

    They did look like humans didn't they--- not like just a bunch of robots.:sad-little: Its been a long time since I've seen a driver that looked like he was having a great day. I still run into some of the UPS guys at the local watering hole (I didn't change bars just because I retired) and I haven't heard a good word about UPS from them in a long time. Sad

    "Macho, Macho, Man" I can honestly say I am embarrassed for UPS in this case. 1995? Couldn't they use something a little newer? Maybe VanHalen's "Gigolo" or if ya really wanna get sexist snippets of Sir Mix Alot's "Baby Got Back".

    Are you embarrassed when you see Magic Johnson of Larry Bird in short shorts in the NBA? It's just a sign of the times.

    No, it was the choice of music, not the dress code.

    Because Van Halen never recorded "Just a Gigolo"

    My bad. Think about it though. The choice of "Village People" had the same effect as that annoying Ashton Cutcher jumping out yelling "You got punked!" Can you imagine it? "Hey UPS guy, can we do a piece with you running around in your tight shorts and perfect smile with all the women drooling over you? Thanks." Oh and since Freddie Mercury said "NO!" we'll go with the "Village People" where people can in their minds replace the "construction worker" with the "UPS man".
