Trend Hunter readers learned months ago that Eva Mendes commercial for Obession was too hot for U.S. television. Now the commercial for Calvin Klein and Coty will run on TV this fall after 9 p.m. To create some extra buzz, Mendes is starring in the commercial which is now available unedited for the web.
The creative director for the agency that created the spot doesn't see what all the fuss is about with a woman rolling around naked on the sheets flashing a nipple. He blames George W. Bush.
Although this ad was banned from TV, the viral power of the web brings all interesting things back into the limelight.
