Rattlesnake Shake

I'm sure by the time I publish this, it will be all around the internets and back again. Oh well. It is a problem with only posting once per day, but I am drafting this at 18:48 about six hours before publishing.

For the four of you who haven't seen it yet....... (click image to enlarge)

Yes, apparently this guy put the 'banana' in Banana Republic.

There are images floating around the web but I didn't steal anyone else's. I went directly to the BR website and poof - there it was.

I never shop there, let alone shop on-line there, but maybe it is something to rethink. And yes, while people are seeing what they think they want to see, I'm 98% sure it's just a crease or material malfunction and not a big ole peen dressing to the left.

But I'm sure I won't be able to sway the naysayers and BR will be taking down the image maybe even before you click on that highlighted link up above.

Or maybe - just maybe - it is a great marketing tool (hehehe, I said "tool") to get people to come see and possibly buy their Tailored Herringbone (hehehe...I said "bone") suit pants.

Yeah, that's more likely the scenario I'm gonna go with.

I've always suspected during a boring photoshoot like this (photographing apparel) that if the photographer and the model both happened to be gay and they were joking around during the shoot, they might decide for the model to get himself a little hard and show off.

You're right about the marketing :-)

It doesn't look like that on the Banana Republic website now.

The title of the Job description you are seeking is the "fluffer". Apparently, flats and pleats are out this summer replaced by the sPinal Tap cut.

Yes, it looks like BR updated their photo. Well, it lives here!

FINALLY got here via Firefox. (Safari won't let me, even after a reboot.)

@David: I bow to your genius. With or without foil?

I wonder whose job it was to photoshop out the peen. I hope whoever it was blogged it.
