Naked Ambition

Back to more frivolous matters...

Call me a prude, but I do find the new Powerade posters featuring the naked bodies of Messrs Borthwick, Sackey and Williams (that well known firm of chartered accountants) somewhat disconcerting.

Don't get me wrong...I'm sure that artistically they have great merit and no doubt some spotty creative director at some very trendy West End advertising agency will be earning a ludicrously large bonus for his far-sighted vision but, let's be honest, the only naked rugby player one witnessed in my day was late at night in the clubhouse after 15 pints and 10 verses of Singing in the Rain.

Those were the days, my friends.

You have a point - but it cetainly makes acceptable eye candy for the female members of the rugby followers!

Could be worse, Barry. Imagine my red face when I bought my then 16 year old daughter a "Les Dieux du Stade" calendar with naked Stade Francais players in it while we were in France in 2007. Even though we are in 2009, Rachel STILL has the Calendar up in her room.
