    Maxim Trankov answered about his yellow pants:

    "The pants are not totally finished yet, they will still be developed and the look will change. In general, it was the Soviet crtics who talked about the yellow pants, but the foreigners liked everything overall. It's just that there was no hippie movement in the Soviet Union when it was flourishing around the rest of the world, and its representatives had their own ideology and understandings, that, by the way, not everyone understood even then."

    So FSUers who complain about the yellow pants are all based in Russia? LOL! Max needs a reality check.

    Maybe it would be better if he wore Prince's yellow pants instead.

    The yellow pants need sequins, sparkles and bedazzling. :D

    I wonder what possessed them to skate to Jesus Christ Superstar in an Olympic season, let alone the yellow pants.

    I like JCS (always have) and I like the yellow pants. In fact, I think he should copy Voronov's red pants with the sparkly black mesh see-through top. :D

    I vote for yellow pants, as well. Or white pants and tie- dye rainbow shirt. Or any bright pants. I totally am behind the point that there is a funky element to the program, not all "St. Maxim's Passion".

    Well, it's a role that suits him. Your post reminded me of this quote "Mr. Trankov would make a perfect Catholic martyr in one of those old paintings where said martyr is being slowly disemboweled on a spiked wheel while praying to God, eyes upturned towards the heavens in fevered ecstasy" (http://morozombie.blogspot.pt/2012/03/worlds-2012-pairs-sp-recap.html)

    Maybe they will be good luck, like Kulik's yellow giraffe costume.

    My thought exactly. Plus, it keeps part of the discussion off of concern that their choreography is kind of disappointing. I mean, let's talk about the yellow frickin' pants!

    The pants look like sweat pants, and they give Trankov saggy butt. And we all know that Trankov does not have saggy butt.

    The pants make me feel empowered as a woman, and I'm not even a woman.
