Victoria’s Secret wants you to love your body

LoveYourBody.irony
So that’s what those ads are about. They actually want me to love my body, not feel totally crappy about it so that I will rush out to buy an undergarment intended to make it look more appealing to other people.

In the ultimate irony, the ad has landed next to a slide show on Huffington Post calling out bad photoshopping. VS, you’re not getting your money’s worth!

  1. Karma, baby. I actually find the juxtaposition of the Victoria’s Secret ad against the bad PhotoShop spread to be delectably apropos…

    (In fact, being ornery, I hope Seth Matlins et al use it as a demo at the Congressional hearing for H.R. 4341 Truth in Advertising Act about the public health toll on boys’ and girls’ body image expectations w/kids’ psyches sinking in a pop culture quagmire) Surreal.

  2. You could read it: love your body instead of loving this grotesque distortion of one. Not what VS intends, of course!

  3. Maybe the karma will work …

I would love to hear what you have to say. Please leave a comment and join the discussion.
