fake American Apparel ad artist gets VERY insidery.

(click images for closer look)
What's with Bambi? you're probably asking. NEVER question an artisan. This is the ad he/she is referencing. Please take note of the switch in medium—from paste-up poster to drawing right on the wood with white chalk/ink. 'Post No Bills', you say, authorities? No problemo. Also take note of the crude labium minora/majora peek, an oft repeated element in the Series. Some of you may want to point out that the model isn't actually wearing leggings. SO WHAT! GOD, you're all such unseeing literal ninnies. (near Union Square, images via, as usual, stereo hell)

i was thinking the bambi is there because it's the same pose...and i think that's just white pain that looks glowy cause of the camera flash. i didn't notice that the 'model' isn't even wearing leggings--clever of you to point that out--how the image could be totally unrelated to what they're trying to sell!

You're right about it not being glow in the dark...amending. Also, agreed about the pose...the artist even included a little Bambi bung hole.

Do you think this could be some kind of guerilla marketing from AA themselves? Made to look like they're satirizing AA ads, but actually just taking it one step further and not having to bear the consequences?

As I've said before, it's very possible. My gut says no.
