Riley Green’s Mom Has Hilarious Response To His Underwear Modeling: “Some Of The Still Shots Were Maybe A Little Creepy”

I don’t think “creepy” is the word I would use, but Mama Green certainly gets a pass here.

In case you (unfortunately) somehow missed it, Riley Green became the latest ambassador for the Gildan brand last year, which is a clothing line that makes all sorts of staples like t-shirts, socks and of course, underwear.

He previously admitted that the experience was a little uncomfortable, but that he wasn’t just modeling underwear during the photo shoot, and is also promoting some of their other basics like plain t-shirts and such:

“I wasn’t really in my underwear the whole day, they got t-shirts and socks to make other stuff.”

While it might’ve been outside of Riley’s comfort zone, I think I can confidently say on behalf of all of us ladies that the whole Gildan marketing team deserves a raise for this campaign:

But there’s one woman in particular who probably didn’t appreciate it as much as we all did, or at least in quite the same way, and that would be Riley’s mom, Karen.

She appeared on an episode of the Got It From My Momma podcast with Jennifer Vickery Smith a few months back, where they discussed a wide array of topics pertaining to Riley, from what he was like growing up to what it’s like now that he’s a country star.

She came across as such a sweet, down-to-earth lady, and when asked about what she thought about Riley’s underwear modeling endeavor, she hilariously admitted that “some of the still shots were maybe a little creepy.”

Like I said, not the word I would use, but I think his mom is allowed to say that and it’s very fair response to find it a little weird that your son is an underwear model of sorts (and probably keeps him humble, too):

“Well, you know, I thought the video that hey did was really cute and it captured his personality really well. Some of the still shots were maybe a little creepy, I don’t know.

But I thought they did a nice job with it. If he’s happy with it, I’m happy with it.”

She also went on to say that it was all done in good fun, and it’s cool that such a big brand would want him to represent their company, which she also told Riley:

“I agree with that, and I mentioned that to him, you know. You’ve got a good reputation.”

Karen also joked that Riley originally wanted to be a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys (he played college football at Jacksonville State), so this is definitely not that:

“I don’t know, maybe. He originally wanted to be the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

Every time when he was small, he had on a Dallas jersey, Troy Aikman, he was a big Dallas Cowboys fan.”

Gotta love moms…

Riley is gearing up to hit the road on his extensive headlining Ain’t My Last Rodeo tour, which kick off soon on February 22nd in Pikeville, Kentucky, and runs through the beginning of June ending in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Here’s that commercial she was takling about too:
