George Clooney voted best road trip companion by... underwear company survey?

Here's a fun little fact for you: When the economy began tanking in late 2008, sales of men's underwear followed, plummeting nearly 12 percent. In fact, male undergarments are one of Alan Greenspan's key market indicators. Why? If you don't have a job, suddenly outdated undies are the least of your concerns. How about another one? On average, men only buy underwear for 17 years of their lives. No, your grandfather isn't wearing the same boxers he picked in Hanoi, but typical guys only buy their own unmentionables from age 19-36. Otherwise, the duty falls on the heads of mothers, girlfriends and wives.

And why do you care? Because both of those tidbits go a long way toward explaining why Jockey, a company that specializes in men's underwear, seems to think most Americans would want to go on a road trip with George Clooney. Don't get us wrong. Clooney seems like a stand up guy, and we certainly wouldn't turn down having a beer with the actor-turned-philanthropist if the opportunity arose, but we could probably come up with a few other persons of interest when it comes to hopping in the car and heading for the horizon. We're thinking the results of the survey may have been slightly skewed to the female end of the spectrum.

The info also keys us in to why Jockey is offering everyone and their cousin the chance to win a gorgeous 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible to go on their very own all-American road trip. The car will be towing a small Airstream from coast to coast to stir up interest, so you can either catch it along the way or sign up here. Here's hoping there's a 289 under the hood. Hit the jump for the PR, and be sure to leave us your pick for a road trip companion in 'Comments.'

If that's the car- that's the 289 emblem winking on the front fender.

Well, he could certainly afford to pay for the gas and tolls..

Believe that'd be the only reason I'd consider road tripping with him....lol

Yes, because hearing all about Darfur for 5000 miles is super awesome. The only reason to get Clooney in a car is so you can then launch it off a cliff to make him pay for Batman & Robin.
