Oh, Rocky! Audiences enjoying the FOX reboot of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ were thrown for a real loop when the creature of the night rose to life wearing gold underwear — aka baggy, saggy boxers! Whaaaat?!
Diehard fans were prepared for things to be, well, different from the original 1975 Rocky Horror Picture Show they know and love while watching the FOX reboot. However, it seems the dramatic change of Rocky’s, um, uniform was just too much to handle!
When Dr. Frank-N-Furter reveals the perfect specimen of man born in the lab, the creature is meant to emerge wearing nothing but a tighty, golden-y, bulge-grabbing speedo. However as Staz Nair emerged from his ice bath, eyes fixated on the unnecessary extra fabric around his thighs. Rocky’s iconic briefs had been replaced by boxers. Welcome to the 8 o’clock hour, folks!
Now, a glimmer of the ‘old Rocky’ look showed up after 9pm, while Rocky performed in the famous Floor Show. Still, even the wardrobe change after prime-primetime wasn’t enough to appease rabid fans and they let their anger be known on Twitter:

If Rocky's shorts are that long, I don't have a lot of hope for the floor show. #RockyHorror

Rocky's underwear is so long and baggy. We're being robbed of bulge. #RockyHorror

Rocky's shorts are too long! It's distracting. #RockyHorror
