Any male office worker can relate to this "fantasy"

Stop Mediocrity. Start Creativity.
There are two kinds of people in the world; people who like mustangs (cool people) and people who like camaros (idiots).

Now if only you could get straight men to care about the shoes as much as the concept.

Those girls have way too much clothes on. Also the ad is way to "shiny". But conceptually I like the ad.

You tell me the rights...
Anything new, less used maybe? It is just an ordinary, first thought man's wear thing... Now you tell me the rights...

i think they are picking up on the modern interpretation of the phallus impressed upon a man's shoe size (picking up from the car of the seventies). Now women look towards a man's shoe as an indication of his thing, men know this and hope to impress women with their shoes.

this takes it to another level... not a great level but another one. and yes people still sell sex. in fact in some cultures people still have sex so it still seems a relevant point to speak of

Well...personally, I find this idea stupid.

Interesting Art Direction. But fashion Advertising is NEVER about concept.

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?
