Supermodel, Work: Cristiano Ronaldo For Giorgio Armani – UPDATED

UPDATED with more from the campaign below. Including a wet one. Hurrah!
So, we’re thinking Cristiano Ronaldo’s Armani underwear campaign is an excellent example of alternative ways to grate cheese for your jacket potato. It’s more environmentally friendly to use the abs of a superstar footballer than to potentially injure your credit card charging arm manually shredding cheddar over your spud.
Yeah, we’re talking rubbish.
That’s because we’re not quite sure how we feel about these shots. Cristiano’s body being hot is hardly news – it’s widely recognized he’s the best in the biz, after all. We’re more concerned about the amount of photoshopping from Nereida’s retoucher that seems to have occurred. Really Mr. Armani? So unnecessary.
And the poses? Why make C-Ron attempt to do artsy with a side of Zoolander? Just let him be. Truly, you should have just published this and waited for the undie-money to come rolling in.
Fingers crossed these are just the “testers” as so far Cristiano’s got nothing on Becks and that … rope.
Edit: Well, let’s not speak too soon, shall we? There’s water involved now, which completely changes the playing field.
