Calvin Klein Makes Good, Then Bad Decisions

We’re fans of retired Japanese footballer Hidetoshi Nakata.

We’re fans of abs.

Therefore, we are very supportive of any such combination of these areas for marketing purposes and/or ease of objectification.

So let’s address the issue arising from the Calvin Klein X underwear range:

Bringing out an ad campaign with a footballer in his skivvies = successful happy-making times.

Putting a gigantic red “X” across the photo and partially obscuring the view of a footballer in his skivvies = evil, wrong and startlingly inconsiderate.

Bad Calvin Klein marketeers. Bad, bad, marketeers.

    The Fashion He-bitch has returned :D He's a legend in Japan. Awww, I miss him. He doesn't even look like him. I wish he was still playing, retired very early. Japan are struggling too at the moment. :(

  15. Canna Fan says:

    My eyes were drawn to just below the "X" – that low hip-dip thing made my mouth drop! Hello there, Mr. Hidetoshi Nakata!

    Umm…the "X" draws your attention to the important parts of the photo. :D

    It's the underwear that's blocking the view…not the X
