He won over America with his bright red sweater, but voter Ken Bone has since revealed that his infamous debate outfit almost didn't happen. 

As he recalled to Jimmy Kimmel Monday night, Bone had initially planned to sport an olive green suit to Sunday night's second presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. "My grandfather helped me pick it out a few years ago," he told the late-night host. "Apparently I've gotten somewhat more fat since then."

After one wrong move getting into his car, Ken suddenly ripped the seat of his pants and had to muster up a Plan B. "I had to do an emergency wardrobe change." Alas, the red sweater was born and Bone's life would never be the same. Those Toy Story 2 comparisons are still impressively spot on. 

Now, the adorable dad has a following of bonafide "Boneheads," a sudden fame his son definitely approves of. "Logan says dad is the best kind of famous—internet famous," he quipped to Kimmel.

However, America really owes a big thank you to Bone's wife Heather, who he credits with all of his fashion sense. 

"I would love to say that I was born this way," Ken said. "I think the short answer is that my wife dresses me like all great Americans."

Well, thanks to that killer wardrobe, Bone is now on the hunt for endorsement deals, particularly a line of his own mustache wax. In the meantime, Kimmel promised him two vital gifts—a digital camera and a brand new suit. "That's the best thing I've ever heard," Bone retorted. 

Still, there's one thing he really wants—for everyone to go out and vote. C'mon, boneheads—make Ken's dream come true.
