Burt Reynolds Strips Down for DirecTV

 - Feb 18, 2007

Burt Reynolds is naked again, years past his prime. His hairy ad, which features a layout similar to the infamous George Kastanza photoshoot, is for DirecTV's latest campaign. The ad states, "Everything should be seen in DirecTV HD ... well, maybe not everything." Touche.

The campaign is a good twist on shock advertising, which we're seeing a lot of.

Here are my favourite shock ad campaigns:
1. RECENT: Celebs photoshopped to illustrate domestic violence
2. FRIGHTENING: PETA, killing people
3. BIZARRE: Brazil is running into pedestrians with a bus

Is a hairy naked Burt Reynolds better or worse?
