Pubescent Porn, Anyone?

August 8, 2010

American Apparel seems to be an ever-expanding enterprise for aspiring pubescent porn “models” with bad teeth.  There are billboards all over Los Angeles, and every time I turn a corner I see a new store.  Don’t get me wrong- AA has its place.  If you can learn to navigate their waifish sizing chart, the kids’ clothes are great, and once in a blue moon I fond something that works for me, too.

Their advertising leaves me with weird combination of feeling disgusted, curious, and a little bit randy.  This week, thanks to Hayden, AA also gave me a good laugh.  One of their billboards, which is on a corner we pass multiple times a day, has always boasted one of the naughtier (as opposed to fashionable) campaigns, and this month it features one of their less raunchy models wearing a very short, white lace skirt?.  Just the skirt. She is laying on a bed.  Is that an invitation?

I digress.

Yesterday, as we drive by, Hayden says, “is that her diaper?”

He might be onto something.  And apparently, we aren’t the only ones who think AA ads are funny:

    I saw this on my follow board and thought it was some kind of NBC “To Catch a Predator” internet sting. Wonder how many random search hits you’ll from the title of this post…



    Porn brings ’em in every time!

    Yeah, really creepy ads! But they work.

    I have never seen those ads.

    But now? I am intrigued.

    Go figure.

    Those marketing guys? They are evil geniuses.
