… is Tom Ford out to destroy straight men?

A new Tom Ford Menswear ad features a two-page spread [page one pictured] of some serious naked woman vs. clothed man violence. Angry advertising authority Copyranter argues that this is yet another piece of the designer’s unfolding plot to destroy heterosexual men. But we’re not so sure. As he notes, the ad appeared in Details, and the male model, what with his metrosexuality and niche beer selection, is clearly gay. So this is actually more of a symbol of Tom Ford’s disdain for gay men who would try to pass as straight. That makes us feel much better. The second half of the ad, with the violent crotch-grab payoff, after the jump.

  1. tom ford is getting so tired. sure, sex sells. and in a prude market like the us a campaign like this can still stir some scandal. however: as much as i consider mr tom as a great marketeer, his sexual adds get so tired…if our tom boy isn’t careful, he will soon be a has-been.
