Why am I surprised so often when advertising agencies or companies decide to "push the boundaries" and end up with egg on their faces? This is no exception. While Jezebel reports that the Dutch company, Suit Supply, has removed the images from their Facebook page after they were "deemed offensive," I found them on the company's fan page - along with a link to the Jezebel article. After all, what makes a campaign like this "successful" if not publicity?
What says "well made suit" more than peeking up a woman's skirt? How long before there's an ad for cold medicine that shows a man dropping the pill into a woman's drink with the tagline "Ruffie her so she'll go to sleep with you!" See how that easy that was? I took date rape and made it edgy, right? *sighs*
Check out two other ads from the campaign (titled "Shameless") that could be not safe for work in a prudish workplace after the jump. Yes, the ads get worse.
