American Apparel model licking Dov Charney's penis through cotton briefs.

(click ad for closer look)
Probably feeling jealous and challenged by the fake American Apparel ad artist, the pants-optional CEO has ratcheted up the "creativity" in his recent ads. And by "creativity," I of course mean "porn." Two weeks ago, there was the bathing suit ad with porn star Faye Valentine. Now, it's this dick licker on the back cover of the latest issue of Danish art magazine S—a space where Dov apparently places the sleaziest AA ads. Don't know whether or not this coquettish lass is also a porn star, but those hairy legs look like Dov's. To recap, here's American Apparel's most overt ads of the past couple of years: Brazilian porn star Paola Rey masturbating in tights ad; French AA ad gets to the topless point (nsfw); AA's bare ass-thetic; stirrup socks ad features model wearing only stirrup socks; and AA Vice magazine ad shoves hoo-ha in our face.

I'm going to refrain from viewing the ad fullsize... I'm eating lunch. However, it looks like they did manage to feature the product rather prominently. They're selling penises now, right?

You know what's pathetic? You writing these posts pretending it really offends you, then linking to them, showing the pictures, and panting over your silly anti-Dov blog, all while bathing in the attention your whining gets you from boring conservatives.

I hate to even leave this comment because it's just giving you more attention.

Pathetic.

garrett, what offends me is the utter lack of creativity in these dead ads, not the "pornography." If boring doofus Dov would hire the fake AA ad artist, I'd applaud the move. But he wont, because he doesn't have a creative bone in his out-of-shape body. But thanks for sharing your keen insight. And keep reading and commenting——I'll print any and all of your shrewd theories.

But first, maybe look in a thesaurus and find another word for "pathetic."

I'm so incredibly bored of these ads. It's like: "Dov, we get it. You like to fuck. Will you just stop it already?"

And, is it just me or does Dov's moustachio remind you of Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood? It's very old timey. I can't take anybody serious who looks like they just got done tying a damsel to the traintracks.

Great blog. I'm glad you posted this.

unlike the above poster, i don't see anything pathetic, or nefarious. (except that they boost your traffic a bit, perhaps). but, it does seem to have reached the point of obsession.

i accept your proposition that it is a rant against Dov's lack of creativity. and hiring the AA tagger would be brilliant, but i really don't think these ads are that bad.

pretty good even, from a branding standpoint they're near genius: "outsider types and the trust-fund kids who pretend to be them can now be sexy too".

i think it all works, and the complaining is just more free pub.
