Warning: These video clips may induce chocolate cravings.

Chocolate has had a starring moment in so many of our favorite TV shows and movies, we’re surprised it hasn’t won a Golden Globe by now. Behold, some of the best:

1. Lucy and Ethel treat us to some slapstick humor when working the conveyor belt at a chocolate factory in an iconic episode of I Love Lucy.

2. After watching Homer Simpson dance through a land of chocolate, just try to tell us that a world where you can snack on street lamps isn’t your dream, too.

3. A magical boat ride down a chocolate river in 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory turns into chaos—and ends with an eerie song from Gene Wilder.

4. Call the Betty Crocker clinic! Miranda eats chocolate cake from the garbage in a 2001 episode of  Sex and the City.

5. But sorry, Darren Star—it’s been done before, with a chocolate eclair. Watch George Costanza’s sly trash-can move in this 1994 Seinfeld clip.

6. Chocolate made several memorable appearances on Seinfeld, including in this infamous chocolate babka scene.

7. We couldn’t forget Forrest Gump’s iconic line. Say it with us, now…

8. Don Draper gets surprisingly nostalgic to Hershey’s execs in the most recent Mad Men finale.

9. Watch Kristen Wiig lose it in a chocolate fountain in Bridesmaids, complete with some NSFW language.

10. If anyone was still watching Adam Sandler movies in 2003, you may remember this over-the-top choking-on-chocolate scene from Duplex.

11. Harry Potter meets Ron Weasley and discovers Chocolate Frogs. Classic.

12. Okay, pretty much any scene from Chocolat would have counted. But who can resist Johnny Depp licking his fingers while Juliette Binoche guesses his favorite chocolate?

13. Things get a tad out of hand when Monica tries to make candy for her neighbors in this episode of Friends.

14. Actually, this gluttonous scene from Matilda makes us never want chocolate cake again—but little Brucie Bogtrotter sure showed Miss Trunchbull!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
