Celebrity underwear museum
A Belgian artist Jan Bucquoy has created an underwear museum in Brussels to display underwears that he collected from famous folks. The rule for the real celebrity underwear is that their owners must have worn them for at least one day.
The most valuable item found there is a framed pair of faded blue boxer shorts with white stripes that allegedly once belonged to Belgian Finance Minister Didier Reynders.
“The certificate confirms the underwear’s authenticity,” Bucquoy says, pointing to a signature written with a shaky hand that he says belonged to Reynders. Bucquoy claims that Reynders donated his knickers to the museum, which opened in early July.
