The newest Marc Jacobs video for the most recent sunglasses collection does not shy from controversy.

Jacobs has never been one to conform to the rules and regulations of the fashion world. Since his start as a designer, Marc raised attention with his alternative points of view -- case and point, being fired from Perry Ellis in his early years for creating a grunge line. Jacobs did not stop his career there and went on to create two of his own labels with business partner Robert Duffy. As well, Marc is now creative director of French luxury label Louis Vuitton.

In his latest attempt to shock the public, Jacobs has released a video titled Jack of All Shades. In the risqué video, it appears a young man is pleasuring himself in public when eventually it is revealed that he is simply cleaning his sunglasses with his shirt. Jacobs uses ambiguous subject matter on purpose to play with the viewer and lure them to his side. The Marc Jacobs video is offbeat and sure to raise a few eyebrows.
