How nice of them to help me decide!

I was never a big fan of designer jeans (except the kind you get at thrift stores), but now I don't ever have to worry about buying any Calvin Klein jeans.

Consider this billboard advertisement in New York:



Why would a company deliberately advertise its products by illustrating a perverted sexual romp (possibly involving minors) and then put it on a billboard so large that the body parts are the size of automobiles? Is this suppose to encourage us to buy their jeans?

It certainly is thoughtful of the Calvin Klein company to help make up my mind never to buy any of their products. I'd say their advertising campaign is a smashing success.

  1. Patrice;
    I agree with you completely. It seems like the "popular" media is doing everything it can to adultrate our children before they even know what being an adult is.

  2. The ironic part: Calvin Klein is one of the few brands that carry modest jeans that fit well. Dang it! Looks like it's time to find a new brand.

  3. I haven't seen this yet...thank you for sharing this. Its one of the reasons I don't shop at Abercombie and Fitch anymore either.

  4. Uuuuuh. Wow. I know I am late, but it's like that Ore-Ida ad that says "kids don't eat that sh--."

    Except that the jeans are worse. Eew.
