From the Crypt: The Perennial Appeal of Playboy Bunny Costumes

Can anyone explain to me why people keep clicking on this old post featuring images of Playboy Bunny costumes? It’s five years old this month, but it consistently remains in the top ten posts year-round, and when Halloween starts to loom on this distant horizon, it really starts to draw some heavy traffic. Why?

I really have no idea what the appeal is. Are there that many women in Los Angeles who want to buy Playboy bunny costumes for Halloween? It just doesn’t seem likely, especially this early in September.

As Geoffrey Rush said in Shakespeare in Love: “It’s a mystery.”
