20 Scandalous Innovations

— April 25, 2009 — Naughty
The public attempts to shy away from nudity and other social taboos, but our 'Gossip Girl' pop culture will always prevail. There's a certain guilty pleasure derived from watching scandalous moments that are widely publicized.

These scandalous innovations below range from provocative editorials to see-through fashion, salacious Facebook pictures and naughty parodies.

Implications - Today's desensitized consumer is generally not in the least bit offended by scandals. Instead, the average person sees controversial, scandalous content as a way to be naughty without any negative consequences. This is something that every human being has dreamed of, which companies can provide if they inject the right amount of deviance into campaigns and products.
