In light of the new television series, The Playboy Club (Premiering on NBC September 19th at 10/9c), we’ve decided to make a list of our favorite Playboy appearances. Playboy appears in a variety of forms, from the magazine to bunnies to the Mansion to cameos by Hugh M. Hefner, the man behind the bowtie.
Though Legally Blonde isn’t one of our favorite movies, or really a movie that we’ve seen more than once, we couldn’t ignore its influence. Even before The Girls Next Door series made the Playboy brand popular again, Reese Witherspoon sports this classic bunny costume to what-she-thinks-is-a-costume party, and she rocks it.
Woody, a pool cleaner, tells two aliens, Wiploc and Zeebo, to go in the gas station and get some grub. For some reason, Zeebo is carrying a toy gun with him as the aliens barge in on the gas station attendant reading a Playboy magazine. Thinking he’s being robbed, the gas station attendant hands the aliens the entire cash drawer and candy. Wiploc notices the magazine laying on the counter and grabs it before they exit.
House Bunny’s plot revolves around a Playboy bunny who is declared too old to live in the Mansion anymore and is evicted. As Anna Faris’s character works to figure out who she is without the support and dreams of Hef and Playboy, she finds herself at a sorority house (a mini-Mansion!) in need of a house mother. Hilarity ensues.
