Bill Hader Knows You Think He Needs New Clothes

Everyone’s got a favorite shirt, but not everyone is in the public eye. So while you may be able to get away with wearing your top to shreds unnoticed, celebrities have a little more trouble in that arena — as Bill Hader just discovered.
The Saturday Night Live star’s prized plaid button down has inspired a Tumblr account called “Lets Buy Bill Hader Some New Clothes,” which started with shots of him donning the same red-and-blue print multiple times.

“This is a place for people to come together for a good cause: The Let’s Buy Bill Hader Some New Clothes Fund. Bill Hader needs clothes,” the Tumblr’s author says (though noting it’s a joke).
Well, it’s a joke that Hader is now in on — while on Conan this week, he announced that not only had he seen the blog, he had a prime suspect. “I think this is my wife doing this website. I think my wife is in another room doing this, and then coming in and saying ‘Oh my God, look what they said about you!’ he joked. “‘We should do something about this, like, today!’”
It doesn’t look like he has any intention to change (as evidenced by him wearing a totally different plaid shirt three times, above), but if he keeps being hilarious about it — as he is in the video below — we’ll give him a pass.
