D&G 2006 Ads: They Had To Shrink Someone -UPDATED

One of these boys is not like the other

Believe it, Kickettes. You are not dreaming. Word has reached us that after Dolce & Gabbana shot their infamous 2006 campaign with the Italian National Team some extra photoshop work had to be done in post-production.

What kind of photoshop re-touching, you ask? Contrary to what you may assume (that the graphic design fairies needed to bump up the shorts of someone not quite up to scratch), it’s quite the opposite.

They had to shrink someone’s package.

Please. This bears repeating. In fact, say it out loud with us now: They Had To Shrink It.

In an archived interview, the designers admitted that while usually there’s no reason to adjust the sizes of their models they hinted that in the 2006 pics someone was too large. Thus, they had to minimize some size.

Again. Repeat: They had to Minimize. Some. Size.

Best to take the rest of the day off with a large colour photocopy of this image and get to analyzing. Who do you think it is?

We’ll reveal what the “official” rumour/gossip is on the winning footballer over the weekend on twitter. In the meantime, we’re going to skip, rather than walk for the rest of the day.

UPDATE
In case you missed our twitter update, here’s the scoop: it’s Fabio Cannavaro.

This life-changing news leaked from an interview with Italian tv presenter Victoria Cabella and Domenico Dolce/Stefano Gabbana during her show “Victor Victoria” . After the designers mentioned an adjustment, Victoria pushed them on air to find out who the “lucky” one was.

They wouldn’t answer her – but this article suggests that Victoria blew the cover, and that it was Fabio Cannavaro that required the change.

Like any decent telly presenter worth their salt, we’re assuming Victoria got the info off camera and couldn’t contain herself. Really, can you blame her for blabbing? We’re writing this post from a tattoo studio where we’re getting “Canna: no shrinkage required” permanently placed on our person.

    I knew there was a reason behind my urge to zoom in. It's called FEMALE INSTINCTS.

  2. David says:

    As a gay guy in love with Serie A, I can't stop staring at Zambrotta.

    He looks alot like a horrible ex-boyfriend I had. He was obnoxious, rude, inconsiderate and often times condrontational with me. But his sexy, sexy face…

    No, no! Must not call him back. Oh, but he was such a good kisser. Put that phone book down! Oh, but just for one night…

    I hate life.

  3. Callie says:

    Great, now all I can do is stare at Canna’s package….life is so difficult :P

  4. Canna Fan says:

    I guessed correctly, it IS Mr. Perfect himself, Fabioooooo Cannavaro!!!!

    Daniela is one lucky woman! ;) Love him!!

  5. [...] 18 October 2009 · Leave a Comment Which Italian national team star needed his package digitally shrunk for a D&G underwear ad? (Kickette) [...]

  6. ^^K^^ says:

    Zambrotta… He seems to have the largest package in the picture even post-shrinkage so I would bet on him.

  7. Zatti says:

    yes, i was right!

    and a big WOW to canna, he is perfect indeed!

  8. Mariam says:

    it was canna! well he does have kids you know ;)

  9. Julia says:

    Pirlo. I bet on him.

  10. ChloeRH1 says:

    I say genaro gattuso but somehow that seems obvious..who knows,maybe andrea pirlo was the culprit(!)..

    Erm..

    I'm officially intrigued!

  11. Ms. Kickette, I can understand that you were a little rattled by this, but it’s “shrink”, not “shink”. LOL

    Also, I think it’s Rino too. :D

  12. imhereforthenando says:

    I need to find out immediately!!!!!!

  13. Katie says:

    My guess is Zambrotta.
    Too funny.
    I’m sure nobody’s ego swelled….

  14. carly says:

    My guess is Zambrotta, his pants are looking kind of funny.

    But…Oh my !!!!

  15. Ante says:

    Already heard who it is (or is suppposed to be). But don’t worry, I’m not telling anyone. *gg*

    • Gigi Neville-Brown says:

      Ha, so I was right. Well, who I was hoping for. He just looks a little too um "cock sure" for his own good. Damn! Off to take a cold one now.

  16. Allyra says:

    SHRINK??? OMG…. Can't wait to know who it is =P

  17. Zatti says:

    my guess is canna! he's perfect!

  18. tammyv says:

    Where the hell is Dan Brown when you need some important mystery solving done?

    Don't care about the Holy Grail or the Freemasons… THIS IS NEED TO KNOW NOW INFORMATION!

    • Gigi Neville-Brown says:

      Tammy, since I don't "tweet", please, please, please fill me in tomorrow. I hope that it's Gattuso, but I think it's Canna.

  19. Carson says:

    V – Can't you contact D&G and demand the outtakes?

  20. Jasmine says:

    I want to bet Canna, though I'd also equally guess Rino. I think I'll just go off and start zooming now to figure this out.

  21. Kleon says:

    Oh, Fabio! he looks really good =D

  22. Lolinha says:

    I bet it's Rino.

    Seriously, you have to have a major pair of cajones to do the stuff he does on the pitch. Also, whenever I see him I get an unexplainable urge to cross my legs.

    I really can't concentrate on anything now, I'll get back to this after Googling all the NT Dolce pics. Oh who am I kidding… I have a special folder for them on my desktop. Also, Burned. In. My. Brain.
