If you've seen images of Brian Atwood's ad campaign starring Candice Swanepoel you'll note that it's a provocative shoe ad. That is, until you watch the video ad campaign which shows more than just sexy legs in sexy shoes walking around a dimly lit room.
The campaign was deemed so racy, that according to the New York Post, the images have been banned from both the facade of Atwood's Madison Avenue store and NYC's "Taxi TV" screens.
Reps for the Taxi and Limousine Commission said it was individual "private vendors" who rejected the racy ad and not the Commission overall.
So what was so risque about Atwood's campaign? For one, Candice practically strips down to nothing, and watches other people (who are in, let's just say, fabulous form) fool around in what looks like the perfect setting for a soft porn movie. And we're not talking one-on-one porn, but an orgy.
But we all know the fate of banned ads like these--they find refuge on the internet, get talked about, passed on, and eventually go viral, which may or may not be part of the plan.
Is Brian Atwood's ad campaign too porn-esque for the brand's own store front and 'taxi TVs'? See what you think below:
