Grand Canyon Tightrope Walker

PANTSED

World record-setting Grand Canyon tightrope walker Nik Wallenda won't have to worry about scaring the pants off himself anymore -- because one jeans company has offered to keep him stocked with trouserly replacements for life.

FYI, Wallenda was wearing Buffalo Jeans when he performed his highwire stunt on Sunday -- becoming the first man ever to cross a massive gorge near the Grand Canyon -- and the jeans company wants to express its gratitude by giving him a lifetime supply of their threads.

A rep for Buffalo tells us, "We know we have brand loyalists but this takes it to a whole new level -- literally."

The rep says Wallenda's wife and children will also be receiving a lifetime supply of Buffalo jeans.

As for some kind of business partnership, or spokesperson agreement, Buffalo says nothing of the kind has been discussed just yet. The rep says, "We can discuss business later."

And if free jeans weren't enough, Buffalo has also erected a thank-you billboard to Wallenda in Times Square.

Dear humans: Boot-cut, bell-bottoms, what ever you want to call them are hideous. They look like elephant legs. The bigger you are, the bigger it makes you look. This BS about it "balancing" out your body is just that - BS.

I don't think Jesus gives a hoot about that nit wit.

Yeah, I'd buy these jeans just because this whacko was wearing them. I don't think so.

Buffalo jeans are apparently poop-resistant.

If he's looking for ad opportunities, I know of another direction. About halfway through one of his tightwire walks, he gets a panicky expression on his face - at which point the camera freezes and an announcer comes out holding a bottle of Super Beta Prostate - saying, "Have you ever had an urgent need to go to the bathroom at a very bad moment?"

Thats not a "thank you" billboard, it's a cheesy way to latch onto someone else's fame.
