Great post. I assume inspired by Sunday's Mad Men premiere? A few of these are far more risque than what the Jantzen execs were comfortable with in the story.

I was thinking the same thing, Stephen! I wonder which ad agency did these after Don Draper ran them off!
Most of these are pretty wholesome, except for the third one with the anorexic mermaid in the starfish bra hugging two gay guys (no one else buys cabana wear).


I don't know bela - that first one is looking like the prelude to a hotel room romp


Paula, I didn't know this was your blog! Never put 2 and 2 together.

Dave, it's my labor of love.
