  9. 9. Calvin Klein The advertising campaign -- which used images of models who were reportedly as young as 15 -- was meant to mimic quot;picture setquot; pornography of the '60s. In the magazine ads, young models posed suggestively in a sleazy suburban quot;Rec Room,quot; complete with cheap panelled walls, a paint splattered ladder, and purple shag carpeting. The TV spots left little doubt that the images intended to imitate pornography. In one of these ads, the camera focused on the face of a young man, as an off camera male voice cajoled him into ripping off his shirt, saying quot; You got a real nice look. How old are you? Are you strong? You think you could rip that shirt off of you? That's a real nice body. You work out? I can tell.” In another, a young girl is told that she's pretty and not to be nervous, as she begins to unbutton her clothes. Klein insisted that the campaign was not pornographic -- that the ads were intended to quot;convey the idea that glamour is an inner quality that can be found in regular people in the most ordinary setting; it is not something exclusive to movie stars and models.quot; Consumer and child welfare advocates disagreed, finding the ads disturbing and exploitative. The American Family Association began a massive letter campaign to retailers, threatening to boycott their stores if they carried Klein's jeans and Seventeen and other major magazines refused to carry the campaign. Eventually the U.S. Justice Department launched an investigation into whether or not Klein had violated child pornography laws. (In the United States, five criteria are used in determining pornographic images: focusing on the genital area, showing unnatural poses, depicting children as sex objects, implying that the children are willing to engage in sex, and suggestive settings). Under increasing pressure and scrutiny, Klein recalled the ads, but not before the ensuing controversy and publicity had turned his jeans into the quot;must-havequot; item of the season. As one marketing director noted, this controversy took Klein's quot;coolness factor from a 10 to a 60,quot; and if continued sales are any indication, his quot;bad boyquot; reputation has only enhanced his products in the eyes of young consumers.
