J.A.F.O. - Just Another FUNKO Observer's Page : Funko Lore
the Story Behind the Funko Golden Underwear Award
Beyond the Skidmarks
The first Fundays were held @ Sparky's in Los Angeles.
Where Golden Freddy Awards were given out by the then COF (Chairman Of Fun) Mike Becker.
In the course of the upcoming year leading to the next Fundays that was held in Las Vegas,
one of the award recipients, Travis of Wobble World & Let's Get Wacky fame, put his up for sale.
He listed in on eBay.
This is Brenda's Award (from Sparky's)
It was heard that Mike was not very happy about this. So he redesigned his awards to give out,
thus was born the "Golden Underwear" Award. After all who would want to buy a pair of framed underwear.
A list of the recipients is on the Funko Hall Of Fame webpage.
