What's the best way to get your attention for a fundraiser? Probably drop some trou.

Antaeus Company posted this funny video, "Naked Actors Need Costumes," showing L.A.'s classical theater troupe in the buff asking for fundraising help in getting money for, well... costumes. Members of the group have their bits and parts blurred out with censor bubbles, but co-artistic director Rob Nagle joked that they might need to remove the pixels next year to get more attention, according to the Los Angeles Times.

There's also a cameo from Armin Shimerman, a member of the company and known for his role as Principal Snyder from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
