    The bonds survey

    I am disgusted by the proposed Bonds underwear advertising. It is really off. There is enough crudeness already today and I don't think it appropriate that Bonds encourage or condone it. Also. in the survey we were asked to number the ads from 1 to 8 from the one we liked best to the one we liked least. They were ALL really crude and there should have been a box to tick NONE and that was NOT supplied. I think that gives a false survey answer. SHAME on Bonds.

    Who's to say that a topic is more or less crude than an equally opposing representation labelled art?

    In this instance, you have perceived that the advertisement is deemed to sexually imposing, whereas the creators of the ad and/or survey have possibly thought that no one could find their creations offensive. Shame on Bonds? Or shame on yourself for being so narrow-minded?

    Perhaps suggest to CafeStudy they include a feedback option at the conclusion of the survey to voice these thoughts. I think posting survey opinions in the forums could be a possible detraction to attend.

    DD says: Ummm.... of all the ads to criticize, you choose to criticize bonds? Can't help but laugh. I don't actually remember the partcular ad you are talking about, but it was Bonds... Maybe it's because I don't know of this particular ad, but I can't see how a bonds ad can be so bad.

    Blackbird says: In response to the responses, :),
    I like ALL of the current Bonds ads. The particular one I was referring to was shown in a survey and was quite different and I really could not take it any way other than I did.
    It has not been yet? been published anywhere.

    Respondees, did u complete the said survey?
    If u did not then don't comment as u would have NO idea what I am talking about..
    I am entitled to my opinion anyway and my opinion was NOT directed personally towards anyone. I take offence that respondees to my comment have directed their comments towards me PERSONALLY.
    Grow up!

    Steve49 says: crude is simply in the eye of the beholder, other people might just see it as an ad for underwear.

    mikaloviche says: I like most of the BONDS advetsiements, especially the girls ones of course and the young girls look hot and sexy , the latest add shown the other night late on TV has a very young looking girl skipping up to a light house she has plaits and is scantlly dressed in pink cotton undies and they look great on her the close up of her face almost suggest braces and the plaights she looks very uncannil;y reminescnet of the girl in the film LOLITA , I think the producers of this add have used some of that influence and captured the essence of that image, the sweet young girl nearly naked skipping and the hair in plaits makes for a very sexy if not almost taboo expolitation of that lolita age group and that whole under age look. we have adds were young girls are in these and its not suggestive but this add is definetly taking on that sexpolitative aspect I think. or is it just my sick mind (I hope not) but it did send me into a pscho sexual spin with a nice warm feeling that I thought may be inappropriate. did the add work yes I feel like buying bonds . its working . sum up the add is good and I loved it , when is it on again can't wait.

    cut and paste hope it works, I worked in film industry and alot of friends went into advertising , I looked at the shots in this add and comared to the opening shots in LOLITA they are actually similar. most of the bonds adds only have girls in the frame long shots but this one is unique in that it has close ups of both her face and her butt. I do wonder how old some of these girls are in these adds, the dolly pan along the grass when she is skipping is the best shot of her lythe svelt body and she looks very healthy. I wondered how I would feel about it if she was my daughter. Its a contridiction for sure at once I feel compelled to comment but I do love the add , Do I love it because it awakens some taboo for me and therefore I am caught in the eternal conundrum and paradoxically I am at once victim of it and also perveyor and not so passive recipient of this lusty little vixen that has captured my attention. please advise or comment and let me know if I am just too articualte and thinking too deeply or just a pervert.

    Blackbird says: PEOPLE please understand that I am referring to 1 single Bonds advert proposal that was shown in an online survey..
    It has NOT been put to air.
    I like all other Bonds advertising.
    I could not provide a link because that would breach the survey rules.
    This 1 proposed ad was not at all like Bonds.
    Unless u participated in the same survey back in 2009 you would not have seen it so there is NO POINT u replying.
