A new Tom Ford Menswear ad features a two-page spread [page one pictured] of some serious naked woman vs. clothed man violence. Angry advertising authority Copyranter argues that this is yet another piece of the designer’s unfolding plot to destroy heterosexual men. But we’re not so sure. As he notes, the ad appeared in Details, and the male model, what with his metrosexuality and niche beer selection, is clearly gay. So this is actually more of a symbol of Tom Ford’s disdain for gay men who would try to pass as straight. That makes us feel much better. The second half of the ad, with the violent crotch-grab payoff, after the jump.
SEROUSLY,PEOPLE ARE HAVING ISSUES OVER THIS AD?! THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT! I THOUGHT THE AD IS FUNNY; IT ONLY SHOWS THAT MR. FORD HAS A SENSE OF HUMOUR,NOT AS AUSTERE AND STOIC LIKE SOME DESIGNERS ATTEMPT TO BE. HOW ABOUT APPRECIATING THE AD FOR WHAT IT IS, CHECK OUT THE ATTIRE THE MODEL’S WEARING,BE INSPIRED BY IT,OR BUY IT IF YOU LIKE IT. COPYRANTER,GET A LIFE, AND MR.FORD,LOVE YOU, LOVE TO WORK FOR YOU!!!
