If you didn’t know, well I guess I’ll break the news to you, Calvin Klein has once again gotten one of their advertisements banned. Time and time again they release commercials for public and cable television networks that are on the verge of becoming risqué and the networks pull the ads every time. Just like last year when the Eva Mendes Calvin Klein Secret Obsession commercial aired, it was quickly yanked off the airwaves, deemed unacceptable for the public. I think its just apart of the Calvin Klein culture, I mean go to Youtube and type in “Calvin Klein Banned” and you’ll see one video after another, it’s crazy. And here they go again with their new Jeans ad, after watching it…even though I personally don’t think it’s a big deal, I can see why it was banned.
The banned Spring 2009 Calvin Klein Jeans Ad was filmed by Steven Meisel with stylist Karl Templer in Los Angeles last year. The ad stars models Anna Maria Jagodzinska, Natasha Poly, Anna Selezneva,Vladimir Ivanov,Edita Vilkeviciute, and Danny Schwarz wearing only their Calvin Klein jeans, oiled up, and rubbing their bodies up against each other. I was going to post the ad so you all could watch it here but Youtube must have also banned the ad because they removed the video not to long ago. However I found it somewhere else so you can watch it here or here. If you thought that was too explicit, well don’t worry because Calvin Klein is releasing an edited version for cable networks.
Update: The videos have resurfaced on Youtube, you can watch them below. I put 2 of the same just in case one is removed,you know how that goes.CONTINUE
