Calvin Klein

Saw these in class today, very creepy vibe.  Although these were labeled as ads that actually ran for a while, it seems like there is some confusion about their origination.  After some intense Googling, I found that these ran in the 1990s, quite intentionally depicting a time closer to the 1970s (a time quite notorious in the porn industry).  They were pulled after growing pressure from consumers and a risk of charges by Feds.  Sex sells?  I mean I guess this worked on someone, seeing as it continued to grow strongly in popularity, but for me it was just creepy.
