Ford Gives Us The Finger.

This would have at least made some sense for fcuk eyewear.
OK first, let's review Tommy boy's juvenile oeuvre of schlockvertising:
To sell his men's fragrance, he gave us tit-fucking and cock-blocking. Then for menswear, it was a naked, nasty crotch-grab. Now, this double-page ad (scanned from the April Vanity Fair) for eyewear. Here are my professional interpretations of this piece. 1.) Like I said, Ford hates straight men. And this middle finger represents a straight man's penis being viciously chomped on. In fact, Ford would have preferred using a small white dick in the shot. 2.) Ford hates women. The woman is asleep (her eyes are closed), and this image represents a man throat-raping her. 3.) The woman is at a dentist's office for some drill work, and the dentist is cleaning some bits of tooth detritus out of her mouth. 4.) Ford is simply telling his critics "Fuck You." Your interpretations are welcome in the comments.
Also, Tommy? Not that it's an even mildly creative idea, but Diesel's been there, done that.

Ford is a douche. Schlockvertising is the perfect word.

In this ad, the middle finger is indeed a penis. And that's Tom in drag.

Or maybe it's simply an homage to the Fragoli ad

I don't think it means anything. I think Ford--like most designers--is a misogynistic douchebag, and he's just trying to be as offensive as possible.

Luckily I don't care for his crap clothes, crap eyewear, or crap perfume (which I imagine to smell like old man ballsweat), so I'll vote with my wallet.

This is soooooo cheesy.
What is the hand of the dude doing besides sexualizing to an ON position this inactive bimbo? DUMB SHIT!

I seem to recall Marilyn Minter being commissioned to do the campaign--but pulled at the last minute in favor of some Guy Bourdin wannabeism. Minter's aesthetic is provocative and gritty in ways that spin porn fantasy on its head-- as evidenced here: and here: Marilyn Minter/ Heels

I wish they'd kept her images. It'd give us all something more interesting to rant about.

Elastic Tranny trying to make herself puke.

Like every nouveau riche, Tom Ford is eventually crashing into the wall of vulgarity.

Little prick in a toothed vagina.
The way Ford would feel with a woman, I guess.
Bad ad.
but the fact it has been banned in own my country makes me like it a bit.
Charm of the forbidden call it as you like

there's another, less sinister possible explanation for this ad: she's on ecstasy. i've bitten on my boyfriend's finger like that many a time while rolling.
