Frosty the Snowman is wearing a red thong in Ted Baker's holiday window in Union Square. We're not sure what to do with this information. But it shouldn't be all that surprising considering the 2010 window featured a Santa whose white-fur-trimmed red skirt was being blown up a la Marilyn Monroe. The chain of stores is apparently exhibiting the same steamy Frosty display all over the world: A helpful videographer in Dublin documents that the snowman's ample butt cheeks are animated. You can also style your own virtual Frosty in scandalous attire if you wish.
