Today in Funny: American Apparel

American Apparel billboard

I live a block away from this billboard; it’s the first thing I see when I get out of the subway. And while I personally find it far less disturbing than the American Apparel ad that was there last year (a guy in short boxers with his hands down his pants who looked a little too much like Ron Jeremy), others disagree.

Still, it makes this Onion bit even more appropriate:

14 American Apparel Models Freed In Daring Midnight Raid

LOS ANGELES—Acting on information gathered from billboards, alternative weeklies, and Internet banner ads, an FBI strike team liberated 14 dazed, sallow, and undernourished American Apparel models in a raid on the controversial organization’s downtown Los Angeles compound early Monday.

“There were girls lying everywhere—draped over furniture, sprawled spread-eagled in the corner, and huddled close like animals,” FBI Special Agent Curtis Froman, who oversaw the raid, said at a press conference. “Many of them had been given nothing more than a pair of tube socks or men’s briefs to wear.”

  1. Mark, AA do seem to have a thing about butts on that billboard. The oddest image they had there in recent times, though, was of a middle aged Hasisidic Jew, looking a little caught in the headlights… Needless to say, it was so ambiguous that it didn’t last longer than a day or two…

  2. Today in Funny American Apparel this picture is very funny so is but very great this thing.
