Calvin Klein’s pattern of putting out borderline-inappropriate racy ads continues with this Steven-Meisel-shot video in which a group of oil-slicked, half-naked models writh around on a couch engaging in enthusiastic simulated group sex. Nice. Leave it up to CK to push the envelope, like they’ve been doing since their controversial early 90s videos in which a creepily deep-voiced man behind a camera asks innocent childlike subjects weird questions. This “threesome” video is kind of like the modernized update of those in which the subjects are now eagerly participating with no front of timidity. Modern times call for a modern video!
Obviously, these ads will NEVER air on the televisions of conservative Americans, but I’m betting that they’ll be a runaway hit over in Europe.
What are your thoughts? Too much? Or are you loving the salaciousness?
