English term or phrase: look at the pole
Se trata de un monólogo cómico (del tipo Club de la Comedia) y hay algunos juegos de palabras que no sé como traducir.

La que hace el monólogo habla sobre una gran actriz que se ha sentado a su lado en el avión.

Z. is very, vey thin. I’d like to do an impression of her. Please, look at the pole. (mientras dice esto está enseñando un mechón de pelo).

Gracias de antemano.

Explanation:
Como yo lo interpreto es que demuestra el pelo al decir 'mira el poste' para mostrar la extrema delgadez de la artista.
