How overt can you go, American Apparel?


(click image to see model simulating(?) masturbating)
update: this is South American porn star Paola Rey. As anybody who reads this slutty blog knows, I am not a prude. But seriously AA—what's the fucking point of the left photo? Why not just show a gaping Hustler vagina shot? Or slap some plaster on Dov Charney's twitching little Dov and introduce a line of American Apparel Lovey Dov Dildos™ (in 15 colors!)?
(scanned from the back of the latest Radar)
update: AA sports a Woody on the lower east side—very unorthodox billboard.
previous AA ads:
1. Girls against Boys.
2. Three fetishes in one small ad.
3. Shouldn't that be 'Tights' with an 's'?
4. Cracks starting to show in AA empire?
5. AA Thongs: Made with Dov.

Might I suggest this to AA (it'll work for both Alks Anon or American Apparel, I suppose) :

A picture of you in A. Apparel tight whites with the caption:

CREATIVE BRIEF.

Talk about worlds colliding....

Dov Charney is a fuckhole.

re Woody ad:

"this could just be part of a more sinister plan to woo Soon-Yi away from Woody Allen."

AA's hiring on 110th and Broadway dude. With THAT ad? Who wouldn't wanna fold those tights. That's all I'm saying.

Also: talk about Polanski. Jeez.

My take? Not yet as pervy as their print ads, but they're on the same trajectory ;-)

By the way CR, I am not complaining, but what's the going rate for these posts you do for Dov? Oh the irony....

Woody probs donated all that ad money to the Jews who died in the Holocaust. $1/per.

Lots of my granola friends keep trying to convince me that overpaying for plain t-shirts is good because the mexicans who work in the LA shops are paid well but you know what, that still doesnt make me want to overlook the fact that the wanker who runs the place thinks its perfectly normal to take down his trousers and jerk off with people around.
(you know the old joke about a poor guy being a pervert while a rich guy is eccentric)
I read that Jane magazine article a few years back where he is being interviewd by some female reporter and he takes out his package and starts going at it in such a nonchalant way that you thought he was opening a Coke can.
Im not a prude either and like most men I dont mind T&A but throw in this little 'quirk' with the all those models they use usually who look like theyre 13 years old and this guy gives me the creeps.

But then again, he does pay those mexicans a good wage so its ok according to my tree hugging friends.

Note to all perverts out there: pay your employees well and you can get away with anything.
Even masturbating in front of people.

Simple, really.

you guys do realize that a good amount of the pictures in the AA ads arent taken by dov. but by Iris Alonzo, a woman.

so...yeah.

yeah, I'm sure Lovey Dov has absolutely nothing to do with the ads' tone or their approval.

She's also his first in command. That's his right hand, um, girl.

Not hard to imagine that the masturbation is more than simulated if this is indeed, as my friend assures me, Brazilian adult film star Paola Rey. She is aged 27, so "young girl" is probably pushing it. Dov has also worked with her colleagues Faye Valentine/Reagan and Lauren Phoenix.

I did not know there was so much blatant sex in advertising! I mean, I know there's sex in advertising, but it's so obvious, it's ridiculous. I haven't seen ads like these. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but for SURE, I haven't seen an ad like this AA one.

This is what I think: Dov Chaney
