    To be honest im not sure, but American Apparel has been known to use famous p*rn stars in their campaigns so maybe it is. either way i just think the whole thing is hilarious :lol:


    --edit: seems like its a spoof by Funny Or Die. Lmao

    ^ I hope it's a spoof. Cause it would be seriously disturbing if it was an actual campaign.

    Provocative ads usually aren't really offensive to me.

    To me it's just art.

    Back in the ancient times, the nude body was something of beauty, both in men and women.

    Go to Italy you will see many sculptures either half or full frontal naked. Go to an art museum and you will see many works of art showcasing sex or nudity.

    Sex is natural and beautiful.

    It's a shame that sex has been made to be dirty or shameful.

    As long as the models are over 18 and consenting, I'm fine with it.

    I love this ad.

    Showcases all sexualities equally, which is great in my opinion.

    Love is love in the end.

    The kid was totally being exploited and treated as some circus freak by the photographer.

    Oh my God lol. He's a transvestite, he takes female hormones and grows boobs and probably had a breast augmentation to boot.

    ^You're correct and I thought the same thing. I've seen her in another video talking. She's definitely a real female. The American Apparel video is all a joke.

    Gee, another car commercial, they're transmitted on TV all the time. It's a very stupid advertisement, no ? And it's understandable why it was blocked.
