Through advertising, Tom Ford continues to inform heterosexual men that he doesn't want them buying his products.


(click ads for closer look)
Previously, Tom Ford literally cock-blocked salivating troglodytes by placing a bottle of his men's fragrance over a woman's shaved nether regions. The ad had a strong underlying message to hetero men: 'My cologne will make you smell like a vagina.'
This time, he again uses crotch-messaging to dissuade straight men from buying his stylish offerings. The above ad says, 'If you wear Tom Ford clothing to a party, naked women will viciously grab and twist your cock until you shout out in pain.' Look at the expression on the woman's face; she is not "turned on." She is pissed off. Also, to further insult us pussy pumpers, Ford cast a dashing gay model to play a "metrosexual" straight man (note the insulting flavored beer). And, of course, the main reason I know Tom Ford doesn't want us heteros purchasing his products is that he placed the ad in Details magazine. Duh. Update: as I supposed with Ford's vagina ad, a reader has brought up the possibility that the woman is not a "woman." Previous naked ass in a fashion ad: Kate Moss's NoHo Ass. Previous hot man in a fashion ad: auto repairs by A/X underwear model Clint Mauro. related: DEEP THINK—the posing of male fashion models.

AND not one, but two phallic symbols included for good measure. As soon as I saw the ad I thought "copyranter is going to have a field day with this".

What happened to her cigarette in the second pic though. Maybe that’s why he’s screaming.

It's true. Gay men run fashion, and they place skinny little boys and pansy-girl-men in their ads. Am I, as a straight man, supposed to want to look like an effeminate homo or a 13 year old boy?

...and I'm also not convinced the 'woman' is a woman. She looks like a tall skinny boy and if we could see her tatas, I'm sure they'd look like 'she' bought 'em in Venezuela one weekend on 'her' Amex.

...why they gotta feed us skinny bitches who 'aint hot?

...girls don't like skinny models, and neither do straight men.

Isn't Details Magazine still in the closet?
The lack of delicious boobies on that woman is insulting to me.

"[P]ussy pumpers"? Oh, you straight boys and your way with words!

Oh, and I'm not even sure that is a HUMAN, male or female. That doesn't look like skin, but some sort of android polymer "skin."

I've no idea of what is that you write about, but I your interpretation of this guys ads are quite interesting. Maybe it will be a successful campaign since people just might buy because it is visually interesting. However I agree that the ads focused on straight men, but whoever look closely at them (not so much as the flavoured beer thou LOL) will sense that it is a bit of a put off.

The malr model isnt gay. For someone who works in advertising its embarrassing to see you perpetuate the stereotype that male models are gay. That idea will go down as the greatest myth of the modeling world. But I guess some men use this idea to make themselves feel better.
