it doesn't surprise me that it was banned, the commercial was a bit racy. i just wonder what the CK people were really thinking... hello, it's conservative America!

still didn't stop me from following the whole campaign:

I dont know what is wrong with the commercial.
Well, you can see Eva´s breast bt what? I already seen some commercials that they show female breasts.

^You live in Europe though right? The Americans still pretend to be very very innocent and kosher that's it. I've seen it too and I think it's a beautiful clip and I didn't even really notice the nipples. Not the most outrageous campaign ever, but a sensuous one.

^yes thank god I live in Europe.
yep I didnt notice her nippes too, bt when I saw somebody saying that she showed her nipples, then I went to see the clip again & you can see it in some part of it, bt not big deal.

The nipple is not essential to the beauty of this clip....so just cut it out already and let the Americans enjoy this lovely commercial. For some reason it reminds me of Chanel No 5 w/ Deneuve from the 70s (found some on youtube recently and had them on repeat for a few days)

even if it's a calculated thing ...
i'm sorry to say that with these kind of words we would be still under .... well europeans know what ....

Eh...? It's mainstream television. I'm not sure I understand what you're saying, actually. Could you clarify? I would be fine with the nipple...but I can understand that there are other sensibilities. It's not as if they're denying women the delight of seeing their peers frollicking on beds, it's just a matter of a tiny little part of the body.

Now, to say that type of thing can't exist anywhere in the media - I would strongly disagree with that. To say that she mustn't be shown as semi-nude at all, I would disagree with that. But covering up the venus mound and nipples on mainstream TV seems pretty ok to me, as a matter of fact...

The commercial reminds me a bit of this old CK ad...it's got that same seedy, old film/ home video, voyeur quality.

That's it? That's the ad with all the hoopla?

I mean, I get why it was banned. There's no way a commercial that clearly exposes nude female breasts would be allowed to air in it's un-censored form. But I was expecting something....more I guess. It's kind of a letdown tbh.

It's a good ad though, very beautiful.

Sidenote, this whole thing is a pretty thinly veiled marketing ploy. We all know there's no way an ad like this would be shown on network television at all hours of the day. We all know that no one would be interested in the new take on a classic fragrance unless there was reason to be.

Mission accomplished.

they just sell the sex appeal and their main target is to the people who can see the complete uncensored ad in the internet.

I hate seeing pic 4 in post 54 every day at 6 in the morning at the bus stop. She looks like a moron. It seems like someone thought that as long as she is naked, it doesn't matter that she looks like a donkey in the face.

The commercial is great. I saw it two days ago on tv even without translation, Eva's voice is so sensual and she was the perfect choice for this. It's not as cheap looking any more but I still don't like the print version, there sould be magazines with small displays and videos.

The bottle is not so bad anymore either. Now I can't wait for the new One campaign, Calvin Klein and CK fragrances and commercials are always great!
