^^Too bad you didn't take notice of the black child depicting a devil whereas the white child is shown in a angelic way. Benetton usually will "play up" historical labels in their ads. I'll admit, its daring a thought provoking.

The Benetton ads are supposed to be jokes/making fun aren't they?

What's the first Benneton ad about? The one with the crowd of people?

and what are they trying to advertise with a baby?

I believe BEnneton is all about diversity? I think the ads are meant to be thought-provoking/ironic, not offensive.

I like the Tom Ford ad! It's funny and even sexy IMO. I seriously don't get how it's "disgusting".

^Thank you...although I do not really like the ad (I just do not think there is any thing special about it) I do not dislike it or find it offensive at all. A woman grabbing her boobs, so what? Boobs are natural! Every girl has them!

I think this one may have been part of an editorial and not an
ad, but I forget

^^ Those wet jeans ads are definitely provocative and have been for a while.

I guess it takes a lot to offend me, because none of this did anything for my morality

Most boobs are natural, but those in Tom Ford's ad are NOT natural. Anyway, my overall assessment of this particular ad is: Provocative - yes, offensive - not really, good - hell no, disgusting - yes.

^ It's kind of hard to tell if breasts are natural when someone is smashing them up and holding them like that. My breasts look like that if I do it and I'm pretty sure they're not fake. LOL, I mean, maybe they are (the ones in the ad), but who cares? I do not find breasts, real or otherwise "disgusting".
