    lol good one. I have yet to see anyone with enough balls to wear anything like this at the beach. I have the short armani exchange trunks and I still feel slightly out of place with those icon_redface.gif It's feels as if you have "gay" written all over you ass, lol.

    What people need to remember is that just cuz you buy the suit doesn't mean you have the body of the model. I get frustrated with this kind of advertising... the same kind that also demonstrates how diet pills don't just make you skinny, they also give you a perfect body builder frame, better hair/makeup, and a deep brown tan.

    I suppose I would take this commercial over some of the ones we have to endure now, though.

    haha i was at a bar in london, and the big screens were just looping all the aussiebum adverts and viral vids etc.

    It was amusing for 30 secs... then it was more amusing to watch the mesmerised faces of the clientele. icon_biggrin.gif

    That's retro? What's retro about it? The cut of the short? The print? The guy's long hair? Yeah, that must be it. The hair.

    I've been in one too many marketing meetings when clients have tried in integrate "retro" into product campaigns that have absolutely nothing to do with retro simply because retro is "in" it's "hot, hot, hot."

    You can tell corporations like Aussiebum have laid off the younger talent and kept the older, vested employees. Retro was SO five years ago.

    Puhlease! Come on, Aussiebum, hire some more talented marketing mavens, please - you can keep your designers though icon_smile.gif

    I don't get it, the swim wear were uninteresting, the model was alright looking but nothing special, he had absolutely no arse and for a model, he should be paying as much attention to his arse as his abs..

    meh, this sort of advertising with buff guys in practically nothing is everywhere, I think they need to develop new ideas for advertising cause, a half naked guy is getting boring.

    Doesn't take much to make most men go gaga and get stupid. Aussiebum makes some great stuff, but really, the guy in the video-What's so special, really?
