What happens in Vegas…starts a viral movement?
After Prince Harry’s Las Vegas nude-photo scandal, which is being totally blown out of proportion if you ask anyone who isn’t a member of the Royal Family, it seemed like everyone was eager to weigh in on his Sin City exploits. Over the weekend, Rupert Murdoch pulled a Chris Crocker and essentially said, “Leave Harry alone!”And while the scandal may not have thrilled the Queen, average citizens seem to be taking it all in stride. (I mean, was he doing anything that everyone wasn’t already assuming he was participating in?) Now, thousands of his co-people in uniform are joining in on the nude party.
A NSFW Facebook group, Support Prince Harry with a Naked Salute, is inviting both men and women to show their support for the Prince by uploading and tagging a photo of themselves. “Cover your crown jewels [and] support the nation’s favorite Royal,” the group declares.
While the Facebook group was originally limited to members of the military, it has proved so popular (15,000 and counting) that now anyone who wants to pledge allegiance to the playboy prince can get in on the fun. You do have to tag the photo, so be sure to update your privacy settings before weighing in. Your co-workers and Mom thank you.
For those at work, the photos run the gamut from risque to silly. Helpfully — and this can’t be encouraged enough — people are also uploading photos of Harry kicking back while on-duty in the army. A majority of the earlier photos features servicemen covering their, ahem, crown jewels with guns. But now everyone from kids to cats to pregnant ladies are showing their support for the mischievous ginger.
Will and Kate must be so jealous.
