The Life Aquatic With That Thing In Owen Wilson's Speedo


A reader was so taken aback by something he thought he saw in Owen Wilson's Speedo in this hot tub scene from The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou that he tracked down an Academy screener to get a screen-grab. (If you can't see what we're talking about, look under his right elbow.) Are Wilson and director Wes Anderson trying to stir up a new Loch Ness monster legend with a Boogie Nights-style prosthetic? Real or not, Wilson's going to have no problems finding a date for the Oscars, whether or not he winds up disappointing her at the end of the night.

UPDATE: We don't have a lot of experience with Speedos, but isn't the idea that they're tight and resistant to things such as air bubbles or fabric bunching up?
