Famous folks' underwear, framed and for sale

(NBC) - Famous folks put their underwear on one leg at a time, just like you. The difference? At the end of the day yours don't end up framed and waiting for the highest bidder.

They say that there's a piece of art for everyone, and a new museum in Brussels may test that statement: It's a collection of underwear donated by the famous.

A Belgian artist created the museum, he says, to express his longing for an equal society.

Artist Jan Bucquoy says no matter how famous a person is, he or she wears underwear just like you.

The only rule for the museum is that the underwear must have been worn at least once by the owner. 

There are some exceptions, however. One of the most popular artworks is French president Nicolas Sarcozy with a pair of blue, white and red underwear from the French postal service, and the colors of the French flag.

The pieces sell for between $550 to $1200.

"I certainly wouldn't buy it for 550 Euros but. I don't know where in my house I'd put it if I did purchase it," said American museum visitor Megan Stringer.

Other favorites include Michael Jackson, shown with boxer shorts from Disney.
