Warning: NSFW-ish

Mondays are the worst. The start of another work week. Nothing good on TV.  New games come out on Tuesdays! What’s a gaymer to do but sulk? Why couldn’t every day be like Saturday? If only we had a geeky male model to brighten up our Monday and give it some of that weekend-energy. Someone like…Parker Hurley, perhaps? Wearing nothing but his Flash underoos, lounging around his nerd-shwag filled apartment playing video games and reading comics.

Well turns out photographer Gabriel Gastelum had that exact idea and decided to make it a reality with his editorial series Saturday Morning Cartoons. On the series he writes:

Remember when we were kids and we used to wake up on Saturday morning really excited to watch cartoons? Well, some of us never really grow out of that. The cool ones don’t at least. Who is to say that age should stop us from sleeping in late, watching some cartoons, reading some comic books, playing with action figures, enjoying a good video game. Who is to say you can’t enjoy those Saturday mornings you did as a kid. No one. So go ahead. Parker does.

Superheroes, villains, stories, excitement, sugar, nunchucks and undies. A good start if you ask me.

And before anyone accuses Mr. Hurley of appropriating our geek culture, check out his personal tumblr where the self described “Artist. Actor. Nerd. Model.” regularly posts about the likes of Cowboy Bebop, Adventure Time, Marvel Comics, and, of course, video games. He even lists his top five titles, which happens to include Pokemon Snap. A man who looks like that and loves some Pokemon Snap? There aren’t enough in the world.

Enjoy a couple more shots after the cut, and be sure to support the artists and check out the full series at Mr. Gastelum’s official website.
