The Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Menswear Ads are Hilariously Provocative

Conceptual artist, sculptor and film maker Cerith Wyn Evans stars in the Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Menswear ad campaign wearing, well, not much. The 53-year-old artist was shot for the campaign by renowned fashion photographer Juergen Teller and featured in a lush green backyard with little more than a bunch of balloons covering his private parts.

While this is perhaps the farthest thing from a typical fashion campaign, Marc Jacobs has never produced anything that can be described as "typical." From his avant-garde designs and unpredictable ad campaigns, which have previously featured Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, Victoria Beckham poking out of an oversize Marc Jacobs shopping bag, and most recently, kooky actress Helena Bonham Carter, the designer is a fan of shock art.

The Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Menswear campaign is a great addition to the designer's silly head-scratcher ads. Stats for Cheeky Fashion Campaigns Trending: Older & Average
