Banned CK ad reprised in music video
Before Marky Mark’s sixpack skyrocketed the sales of white Calvins, the company produced a series of Warhol-inspired CK jeans commercials. These were shot in some small wood-paneled back office and featured male and female actors-models posing, while answering suggestive questions from the man behind the camera. Some Americans associated these tv ads with evil things like prostitution, screentests for porn movies and child pornography, and the ads were quickly banned. Now, the retro-new wave-synth pop artist Twin Shadow recaptures the awkwardness of the banned ads in his music video for Slow, shot on VHS and directed by Alex Markman.
